“I’ve always been interested in looking beyond what meets the eye in foreign countries. I am captivated by the insight into the lives of individuals – even more than the more obvious beauty of the land itself. As a person interested in politics, Cyprus fascinated me immediately with the unique situation of a divided land and its ambivalence. Especially in view of current developments of nation states in Europe, I am focused on the feelings of the people against the backdrop of the political arena.”
