The idea of creating these spontaneous characters evolved on the same day as Manu Burkart and I shot the metal and portrait series (check here). Manu brought his "costume crate" with him and he joked around with some funny masquerade and we thought out some fictitious condemnations. The funniest and most original characters were instantly shot in front of the camera.
This series was selected by the jury of PHOTO18 in Zürich and shown at the exhibition in January 2018
