Photographs

In 2010, I photographed Benjamin Melendez for the Swiss magazine “tachles”. We met in his old neighborhood, the former Ghetto Brother turf, and he told me his story. It all started with these photographs.

Five years later, his story is now a graphic novel and the photographs I took back then became illustrations. Here an example of the way Claudia Ahlering turned my 2010 portrait of Benjy into a draft for the cover.
