“Am Land hat das Ego genug Platz zum Atmen. Dort findet man es in seiner vollen Pracht. 12,5m2 reichen dafür selbstverständlich nicht aus. Die fiktiven Grenzen des Parkplatzes gelten für den Egoisten nicht. Häufig beansprucht er zwei Parkplätze oder stellt sich direkt vor die Eingangstür, um Unannehmlichkeiten zu vermeiden”.

This project is about selfish parking. Many people, especially in the countryside, park wherever they want - whether it's in the disabled parking space or directly in front of the shop door. To make these people aware of their ignorance, I photographed their ruthless parking behavior with polaroid and put the photo in their windshield. So the only person they have to explain their behavior to is themself.

To document the whole project I designed a book, which contains over 30 photographs of unique parking attempts.
