DSI is a foundation championing integration in Germany. For the 70th anniversary of the German constitution, they wanted to do a campaign celebrating a diverse and inclusive society. The idea was to link each article of the constitution to a German with migration background. For example Margot Friedländer, an Holocaust survivor, stands for article 1: “Human dignity is inviolable”; or Zeina Nassar, the athlete who changed the rules of the Boxing Federation to be able to fight wearing an hijab, stands for article 3: “The undisturbed practice of religion shall be guaranteed”.

 


Our goal was to go beyond a typical portrait campaign. That’s why we decided to shoot testimonials in the midst of a crowd, showing that successful integration and the respect of the constitutions’ article is a task that can be achieve only by society as a whole.
