Dauercamper - Photography from a German Trailer Park
In North America, Trailer parks are not uncommon on the edge of the (small) urban societies. And these trailer parks are a symbol of that edge. Permanent campers in Germany - instead of living in an apartment - are living in caravans or motorhomes in campgrounds, so to speak, the German trailer park version. They are hardly noticed.
I visited these people and photographed them. I listened to their stories and and brought back moments of there lives. Here, the alternative life plan of permanent campers is always a very individual decision. Here at the edge I feel more at home than anywhere else. I am welcome.
