Introducing his volume of photographs of the beginning of the 21st century, Heinz Stephan Tesarek describes it as a â€œreport on the approach of momentous timesâ€. For seven years the photojournalist observed the context of social developments in twelve European countries, but also in the Asian part of Russia and in the US. In 96 photographs he worked his impressions into the story of the Zwischenzeit (Interim). They are images of decisive years.
