Claus Morgenstern & Per Schorn Frankfurt People Photographers

Photographers Claus Morgenstern and Per Schorn randomly selected five small towns, one for each week in the southern United States, where they planned out scenes and sought out protagonists. The result was a number of impressive shots.

The series "Assurance elected icons" by Claus Morgenstern shows public elected leaders looking beyond world politics and towards a positive future.

Per Schorn found his characters on the street, in front of garages, in the cinema and even in a boxing club, to help visualise scenes that are happening but are vaguely familiar and known. A feeling hard to grasp, the series is called "Deja vu".

Hamburg-based Eva-Maria Herbert was in charge of post-production.
