WAS WÄRE, WENN by Leonard Müller

It started as a day like any other – Leonard Müller stumbled around the streets of Hannover, Germany, not thinking about a special thing when he passed an older man, sitting on the ground and asking for some money. Normally he would just pass by, not questioning anything about such a situation, but that day turned out to be different. Leonard caught himself thinking:  “Why should I give some of my money, he’s getting booze anyways.” It was that thought, which passed his brainstreams, leading to further questions like: “Who am I to care about his needs or priorities?” The whole topic about spending money, setting personal priorities and desires didn’t stop buzzing through his head, leading to this photobook. What do the most different people with the most different backgrounds get for 5€ and why?

Leonard Müller shot the whole book on film to not affect any aura of a protagonist by using an editing software.
