Melanie, Öhner, Stiffel, Limbo, Gero, Anna and her friends are young and live in Essen when Andreas Weinand spends much time with them and takes pictures from 1988 to 1990.

While the first episode of the “Simpsons” is broadcasted in the USA, Florence Griffith-Joyner wins three Olympic gold medals in Seoul, the Berlin Wall falls and Tim Berners-Lee invents the World Wide Web, the storm of youth rages within the clique, going full blast. The emotional dizziness in the cosmos of invincibility, love, sex, drugs, alcohol, refusal, crash and resignation is always greater than the world out there.

In order to prove that, Andreas Weinand only needs 25 images. But what kind of images. A fabulous series about an indescribable state, which becomes deeper and deeper the more one views it.

The book comes in a second edition of 200 copies published by “Peperoni Books”
