This photobook documents Germany’s climate movement at a time when the awareness of the global climate crisis is omnipresent. It tells the story of people putting their ideals first and making a stand for more climate action.

Working on this project I delved into the world of climate activism on an intimate level: attending meetings, visiting homes and court hearings, observing people practising glueing their hands and editing videos for social media. I was also there for the action: waking in a barn the morning the occupied village of Lützerath was stormed by over 3000 police officers, the eviction of protesters enabling the extraction of a further 110 million tonnes of coal. I photographed Letzte Generation on more than 40 occasions across Germany in museums, and on motorways, bridges and airports - anywhere the group chose as their political stage. Also getting arrested once myself. Accompanying the photographs are personal essays I have written to give more insight into this, for most people, inaccessible world.

All books will receive a signed postcard, and all prints will be signed. I cannot sign the books directly as I am living in New Zealand (books are being printed in Germany).

Starting this book project has only been possible since I thankfully received partial production cost funding from VG Bild-Kunst. Now with the book production approaching I would be very grateful for every single pre-order to help finance the rest of the book. Thank you to everyone showing interest in this project, buying a book or print, or sharing this fundraising campaign with others.
