Damals is a book project from 2014. It was made for the 40th anniversary of St. Paulus, the parish in Dresden that my parents belong to. The book collects stories from the church’s oldest members as a legacy for its younger ones. My job was to edit and structure all the stories and images into a coherent book. Still, I wanted it to look like a rough collection of memories, because that‘s what it was. And then there was the matter of its readership: The old ladies had to like it, but at the same time it should look interesting for a younger generation. This was the balancing act I tried to manage.
