“Going into this judging I did hold hope of there being images representing migration into Europe. Toby has focused his particular efforts on documenting sick and wounded children brought to Germany by the NGO Peace Village International for specialist medical treatment not available in their country of origin. This image has haunting quality to it… the child appears to demonstrate both vulnerability – with his medical wrist tag, small stature, and the way he is holding onto the NGO staff member’s hand – but at the same time his eyes seem to show an expression of a child who has seen and experienced things that have forced him to deal with the tough and often brutal realities of the world in which he lives, and grow up fast. The photographer has used light, contrast and reflection very effectively in the image, and the composition means that the viewer’s attention to directed almost exclusively to the boy’s face and the hand holding.”

First images of the exhibit and the opening last Saturday! Changing Realities is designed for the presentation in the public arena. On billboards – altars of western consumer society – the selected photographic positions create a surprising „art“ space. It is thus not only an exhibition, but also an intervention in public space. I’m shown there with my series „Friedensdorf“ and „conflict-free mining in Eastern Congo“: Changing Realities – Images of a World in Transition
My work about conflict-free mining in Eastern Congo has been shown at the photo festival „Horizonte Zingst“.
One of my photos from Bottom Hospital/Malawi in „Der Spiegel“.
