For one year, I accompanied an interview team in the district of Friedrichshain, Berlin, as a photographer for the book "Friedrichshain kocht". We talked and cooked with a lot of people committed to projects of social or public interest. We chose to cook together since cooking is a way of bringing people together and creates an easy atmosphere that allows a wide range of questions and answers. Thus, the people we introduce are not portrayed in their actual sphere of activity but while cooking. Each group presents their favourite recipe in the book. This way, this is not a book to be left in the shelf but to be taken out time and again.
