War and daily life, destruction and suffering – these are subjects the photographer Sylvio Hoffmann deals with in his pictures. Since 2014, the young photo reporter has travelled through Syria and other conflict areas. The Zeitgeschichtliches Forum shows about 60 photos of his travels.
Portraits of proud combatants, moments of danger in everyday life, of hope and despair, but also quiet moments that are touching. Viewers are frequently struck by the aesthetics of the images, which are in stark contrast to their content.
