In 2003 I started a long term portrait project of young women in the city of Regensburg. The project is still in progress and has developed over time in a photoserie about the life of a young woman called Sasi. Aim is to document the growth and change of identity and personality of this young woman over time. The portraits give a glimpse of what it is like to grow up and live a life in the direct Regensburg region. The photos give an impression about themes like selfawareness and regional identity.
