I photographed people of different ages who used everyday support at home. The consideration was whether it would be possible to photograph clients of a home care service in a way that they are not shown on the photo. So to make a photographic portrait of the individual without showing their face. Since these people spent most of their daytime at home, in their house, it was obvious to include the living situation, the furniture, the objects and thus let the trappings tell the stories of the people. An unconventional collection of unexpected photographic still lifes has been created, that reflects the everyday reality of these people and emphasizing how small touches converge in daily life. These images are also a sign of the times as it is lived today.
