In my life, my biological parents contributed to any positive development. Instead, I grew up in the home and came to foster parents. Therefore, my romanticized traditional family is unknown. Strangers who became friends who accompanied me on my life and accompany, have taught me the value of family again.
Family’s love and support, the place where I belong , where I can find peace and familiarity, I relax and utter , feel secure and can be dropped. But family defines itself over and over again, constantly brings surprises, calls attention, helpfulness, tolerance and loyalty.
Us is not only the conviction that every man himself knows best , who he is and how he wants to live and love , but also the rejection of all forms of discrimination, exclusion, stigmatization, violence, coercion , racism , sexism, and from the outside imposed gender roles.
Behind each of my portrait subjects is an exceptional person with their individual preferences, wishes and goals that I love that I admire that I’m proud of – a part of my family today !
