CLOSED. For years I have been totally shocked about how many shops in the region where I come from have been closing down gradually. At the same time newly built shopping centres and supermarket chains keep popping up, expanding and closing in on us. During the winter semester 2013/2014 our photography course professor gave us the task to implement a project with the wide topic "transformation". I chose the business decline in my region and tried to capture the feeling I have when I see all those closed little shops. In my eyes with every closed down shop a part of history is also closed down. Moreover, it shows a gradual erosion of rural life.
