we are happy

Zurich, Switzerland

This series was shot in Zürich at the Streetparade, near to my hometown, at 10. August, in 2019. The house and techno parade is one of the biggest electro-parties happening once a year in Switzerland. Since 1992, when the fist Love Mobiles started rolling through the Zürcher Seefeldquartier, it has been a 24 hours rave in the name of tolerance. This mega event captivates hundreds of thousands of dance enthusiasts from all over the world.

I have chosen the electric pictures that sum up the spirit of this event:

It`a wonderful sparkle of joy, abuse, lust, and waste. There is an occurring sense of violence, like there is everywhere, where masses of people collapse together. But most of all: there is love. First of all: love about ourselves - about expressing ourselves. And there is a huge amount of love for others. Even for a day, no matter if driven by sweet liqueur of life or overwhelmed with the smell of a devil`s breath. This atmosphere results in capturing encounters and pictures.

It's about our urges and needs and the celebration of freedom. It`s about finding and losing. It`s about overtaking the spotlight and giving a fuck.

Most of the time: we are happy
