We all follow different paths in life. One of those paths began for me somewhere in a tent camp in the german province.
It was 1991 and I visited a pentecostal camp of the German Scout Association.
The Boy Scouts are an international youth movement founded in the United Kingdom, whose goal is to promote youth development regardless of race, social class, religion or political view
I never forgot my boyhood with the Boy Scouts and as an adult I would never let go of it completely.
The Boy Scouts have always been a social microcosm to me. Fairness, cooperation, solidarity but also the development of one's own personality, are lived here in a small, protected space, just as they should be lived in a larger social context.
It´s a story about finding an attitude to life, about developing your own personality, about finding my own way.
This time again, like a scout:
Finding a path.
With my camera.
