Haariger Beweis, Article & Illustration
Haariger Beweis or "hairy evidence" is an article I wrote about a street encounter with a man addicted to heroin who considers himself to be an angel. I love to collect stories from everyday life and this was a very bittersweet one. The assignment was to write something about Ziegenmarkt district, so I just sat down there to watch what was going on when immediately a guy came up to me to ask if I could help him because he was being followed. It soon turned out that what was following him was not a person but rather shadows from his intense past, yet when he heard I was searching a topic for an article he was inflamed and told me his whole life´s story. It was very strange, because we had such different perspectives on what this article would be about. While he thought I would help him fight his dangerous persecutors, I became more and more intrigued by his unusual personality. In the end he gifted me his Eiffel Tower earring and kind of stripped right there on the sidewalk to show me the surprising proof of his angelic being - a very hairy spot on his back which indeed was shaped in the form of a wing.
