This photographic project is an examination of my hometown Babenhausen and its surroundings in Bielefeld. Located at the edge of town, Babenhausen has a very specific kind of aesthetic to be found in many German suburbs and micropolis. Those suburbs are usually described as being mundane and unspectacular, especially during the winter months.

The photographs were taken on multiple walks throughout my neighbourhood spanning from early afternoon till after sunset and from fall into winter. While looking through the project, the viewer relives a fictional version of such a walk. Presented as a time lapse and filtered through the photographic technique, this project aims to capture and emphasise moments of beauty to counteract the common sentiments towards suburbs described above.
