Yannik Willing – Before Tomorrow

Yannik Willing - Before Tomorrow

“In my project, I am concerned with the imminent radical changes of tourist regions in Sri Lanka after the end of the civil war in 2009 that had lasted almost thirty years.

In 2011, more than 750.000 tourists visited Sri Lanka -never before had so many tourists visited the country in one year. The government is aiming to achieve a number of 2.6 million tourists in the year of 2016 – in a few years, the tourist regions will change drastically.

It struck me in these regions that the atmosphere was calm – but at the same time there was a sense of tenseness in the air. It was only on taking a closer look that the signs of imminent, unavoidable changes became apparent. Investors from Sri Lanka and abroad had already secured many land areas.

It seemed to me that the barriers to structural change had just been opened. However, the consequences of that rapid change are still not clear, even today.” – Yannik Willing

Gabriele Harhoff - Pelikan

Gabriele Harhoff’s Asian travel notes are spontaneous and light-footed without falling into arbitrariness.

“For me photography is a means to explore. I am interested in “non-moments”, in human – mostly urban – living spaces, where anonymous persons, objects, colors, forms and textures all are equally important.” – Gabriele Harhoff
