Manhattan - Straße der Jugend

About this series
Stephanie Steinkopf studied at the Ostkreuz School of Photography. Excerpts from her final assignment Manhattan – Straße der Jugend are presented here. The series of photos deals with houses made from prefabricated concrete slabs in Letschin, Brandenburg, where after the fall of Communism parts of the existing social structures fell to pieces. The estate was given the name Manhattan by the inhabitants of the village, as it has the look of New York’s skyline.
