Planet Ruhrgebiet
Project info

In these days Germany is said to be one of the best countries to live in on this planet.

I am German and yes, generally speaking, it is.

But, not everything is as shiny as one might believe.

The "Ruhrgebiet", once the industrial heart of Germany where the "German Wirtschaftswunder" was created things have changed in many ways.

These pictures show part of a reality in this area where 5.1 million people live today.
