jagdsaison  hunting season  2017
short description

In the evening of the German parliamentary election on September 24, 2017, the front-runner of the right-wing populist party AfD (Alternative for Germany) shouted out to his cheering followers: »Wir werden sie jagen!« (We will hunt her/them!)

This was the starting point to photograph Jagdsaison (Hunting Season) as a commentary to the outcome of the election. Extended by photographs from the television broadcasts of the election night the work moves between the parliamentary building of the Reichstag and the Berlin headquarters of all the parties elected into the parliament.

The photographs were taken throughout the first week of the exploratory talks for a coalition of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU/CSU), the Liberal Democrats (FDP), and the Greens in October 2017.
