Six weeks ago Ben passed by the sign that marks the city border of Berlin. He is a carpenter on his journeyman‘s apprenticeship. I can see that his life is entering a new phase. Just before he left for his travels, he met a new girlfriend. At first he didn’t have the courage to tell her he was leaving, but the second time they met up he told her. Now he is slowly realizing that he won’t be returning to Berlin for three years and a day. “When I think about what that means it hits me real hard”, he says.

Journeyman, Erfurt, 2005
