As I began my photographic journey while living in Amsterdam more than a decade ago, I focused on the plight of immigrants in my adopted continent.
On the first night of this project I met Christopher Nsoh from Cameroon, living as an asylum seeker in eastern Germany. A human-rights activist and lawyer back home, he fled his country to save his life. Struck by his steely integrity and inner strength, I decided to document his campaign for refugee welfare and stayed with him in his asylum home.
On the third night, we were attacked by a Neo-Nazi.
