Provisional Life is a photo book about people who had to flee their homeland and live in a refugee home in Germany. The pictures are taken over a period of three years and are portraits of the inhabitants, photographs of their daily life and the rooms they lived in. The living space allocated to an individual or family is limited and the furniture is standardized. To be able to feel at home the inhabitants are creative in arranging their surroundings to utilize the space well and to add colour, which they are used to from their home country. Here is a link to a video showing the book.
