This series is a personal work, documenting the neighbourhood I have lived in since I moved to Luxembourg in 2013. In close proximity to Luxembourg City’s train station, the quarter’s reputation is notoriously bad, with drug trafficking and prostitution coining the area’s image. Triggered by the ongoing transformation of the whole city and the quarter in particular, I felt the need to document the changes around me. Since the area is subject to an increased gentrification with old town houses being knocked down and replaced by modern office and apartment buildings, more and more contrasts appear. This work also enables me to properly discover my neighbourhood and all its colours, shapes, and textures that form its character. Choosing a decidedly minimalist approach, I want to provide enough time and space to reflect on these individual, seemingly everyday features one could easily overlook - even as a resident.
