Tempelhof - an analouge photoproject documenting volunteerwork

During the second half of 2015 the closed down airport Tempelhof opened up as a temporary refugee shelter. The autumn of 2016 there was approximately 1400 people living in the hangars and the airport had become one of the biggest shelters in Berlin.

I followed one of the many initiatives starting up on site. As a reaction to the start-up of the shelter, Berliners donated tons of clothes, shoes and other necessities directly to the airport. As a result the Kleiderkammer was created, an initiative where volunteers sorted and handed out donated clothes to the newcomers.

This is how it could look.
