Portrait einer Straße

Berlin, Wedding, Gerichtstraße, 2014-2015.

Eine Straße als Bild. Für einen Bezirk. Für eine Stadt. Für eine Entwicklung. Es geht um Veränderung, um das Aufeinandertreffen von Gegensätzen, um Vertreibung und Vermischung. Um Spannung, Angst, Hoffnung und Gelassenheit. Um das Abenteuer des Augenblicks.

By Anna Niedhart.

Young Chinese Workers


It is 8:30 at night. A group of young workers are busying processing products at a plant in Zhuhai city, South China’s Guangdong province. They have been working for nearly 10 hours. All of them are born in the late 90s and come from rural areas outside the province. Wearing blue uniforms and having peculiar hairstyles, they make a living by repeatedly working on the assembly lines and contributing as one of the forces of the city’s construction.
