Mimesis - A Deceptive Game
In the flow of movement, dark masses, bizarre situations, shadowy portraits and questionable details oscillate between the real and the fictional.
During the days of mimetic desiring it is almost impossible for the outsider to distinguish everyday life from the state of emergency. And the locals can meander through the Cologne Carnival without really being aware of it. For them it is everyday life and a completely normal state of being.
The photographs were taken between 2011 and 2016 and are the fifth part of the cycle Black East Wild West.
