I participated with portraits about children on the day of their first holy communion. though the catholic church is in deep crisis and churches are frequented only on easter or christmas days the day of the first communion is still a very important day in the childhood of catholic children. they visit preparation courses at their communal church for weeks and on the festive day the whole family and relatives come together to celebrate the initation to the catholic community. nowadays this is the time when they have the closest contact to the religion in which they were baptized. these photographs were taken with a 4x5" film camera. published 2008 by edition braus. art direction dirk linke. foreword by jan weiler. 

The Mercy Project, Inochi

Photographer and Editor James Whitlow Delano  about his project: "I posed one question to photographers I have met all over the world, after the untimely passing of my sister, Jeanne, and last member of my nuclear family: “share with me one photograph that says to you, ‘MERCY. The Mercy Project / Inochi is a charity photo book project featuring the work of 118 photographers from 28 countries from Magnum, VII Photo, Noor, National Geographic to emerging talent coming together to create awareness and raise funds for hospice and palliative care." My participation was a series of portraits of my mother during her time of chemotherapy after the diagnosis of breast cancer.
