Thilo Rohländer's statement
The series shows pictures from Southeast Asia. When traveling new places you rarely get the feeling of experiencing something completely new. There is always something in the back of your mind that gives you a feeling of experiencing something familiar in the new scenery. It can be a landscape, a weather condition or some plastic chair in the middle of nowhere. Just like learning a new language everything feels new and overwhelming at first but then you start to stumble upon specific words which have a familiar sound and meaning.
