POTT
Pott continues to document my German hometown of Bochum and its surrounding polycentric Ruhrgebiet – an area conspicuously wedged somewhere between the peripheries of decline and advance. The work explores the social, cultural and economic implications of history and change in a transitioning, post-industrial community and its landscape.
