On my last trip to Madrid I noticed that more people are forced to earn their money on the streets than before. What´s more: you see people who ask for money of whom you never would have expected it: Women who could be my mother from their age or the way they are dressed. I started to ask people in Madrid and Berlin if I could take a photo of them and many of them agreed. Within one weekend I shot 20 portraits. I only take one shot per person. That is why some are not 100% sharp. The pal suggested that him and me should be on the photo together. So we asked a woman who passed bye to take the photo of us.
