Joerg Metzner :: Going Home

This series by Joerg Metzner, Going Home, chronicles his unexpected journey home to see his dying mother in Kiel, Germany. The exhibit documents Metzner’s somber journey to see his mother one last time, while being oddly comforted by familiar everyday customs like going to a butcher for a quick Wurst Brötchen, all the while speaking and hearing his mother tongue. Small, familiar details, like the hand-cranked awning of an old-fashioned shop and the smell of freshly-butchered meats, imprinted themselves in his memory during those few days with his family as they waited for his mother to take her journey home.
