Weit weg von Brüssel

Stefan Enders is not only a great photographer and professor for photography at Mainz University, but above all he is a fervent European citizen. Enders set out to explore his very personal Europe as part of a one-year sabbatical. During his seven-month tour around Europe he travelled 31,000 kilometres along the external border of 15 European states. The result is an homage to the people of this part of Europe, a poetic and critical analysis – full of sympathy and radiance.

Details

“You are asking whether I feel European? I don’t know – I am a Scotsman.” Enders set out to explore his very personal Europe. And he was given answers like this one by Charles Hawkins.

Nobody had the slightest idea how timely this project would be when Enders started out on his journey in March 2015. As a photographer he wanted to give an account of the citizens of the European Union. However, he wasn’t going to talk about the well-known central areas, but the people living at the periphery and the borders. He travelled along the external borders of Europe – from Scotland to Portugal and up to the far north-east of Scandinavia.

During his journey ‘around the European Union’ Enders portrayed more than 200 people. He shows equal respect to every one of them in his poignant black and white photos: the factory manager, the union leader, the female worker, the unemployed man and the refugees stranded in Europe. His coloured photos place the project in the current historical situation in Europe.
