For many young artists from Central and Eastern Europe photography offers the safe position of an observer in the flow of an ever-changing civil society – a position that might help others to find their own identity. 
The young artists gathered in LAB EAST have developed self-confidence, they seem focused and open to the exchange of ideas. In their photography form does not dominate the content. Instead the artists use empathy, intelligent critique and humour to describe their personal environment.
LAB EAST shall encourage the discussion about aesthetic and socially relevant questions. The chosen form of presenting the 30 artistic positions in an alphabetical order offers a vivid alternation of visual 
language and topics. It thus parallels the dynamics of historical events and recent developments.

His subject was Mystic dimensions of popular Islam in South Asia, a guarantee for memorable encounters. One highlight of his sojourn in Abbotabad, Khyber-Pakhtunkwah province, was of a more political nature: an invitation to diner at the Pakistan Military Academy (PMA) by a group of young officers.
