Woven into Life

by Oana Ban (France)

I started my photojournalism workshop with a project idea on an aspect of the « Jewish Berlin » and had done some research and established some contacts prior to the start of the workshop from my hometown Paris, France. Soon, I realized the disproportion between even an aspect of such theme, the short time (2 effective days of photo shooting) and the objective of a visual storytelling.
«Jewish Berlin » could go into many directions from the legacy of the holocaust, Jewish culture and architecture, Jewish diaspora, Jewish social gatherings or antisemitism, a vast area to get a story within 4 days of a photojournalism workshop and only 2 days of photo shooting.

Seth, an immunology doctor from London with Serbian origins, coming to Berlin for business. He very much liked the socio-architectural concept of this Memorial in terms of a Memorial being « woven into life » and gave me the idea for my project title.
