..."When the child was a child,
It was the time for these questions:
Why am I me, and why not you?
Why am I here, and why not there?
When did time begin, and where does space end?
Is life under the sun not just a dream?
Is what I see and hear and smell
not just an illusion of a world before the world?"...

Peter Handke, "Lied Vom Kindsein":

In "Why Am I Here And Not Over Over Over There" an essay and a collection of poems engage in a meaningful discourse on the intricate and intangible complexities of memory.

The photobook was printed in November 2021 aftera successful crowdfunding campaign that ended in Summer 2021.

"Why Am I Here And Not Over Over Over There" explores the themes of dispersal and Fernweh. It incorporates diverse media, including film, digital, and mobile photography, featuring images captured over a period of ten years, across different countries.

The project started as a quest to give shape and configuration to a state of dis-belonging through an atmospheric immersion, a visual journey through the juxtaposition of disjointed places I have called or attempted to call, home.
