Calin Kruse: WEST

Trier West is considered to be a disadvantaged suburban area with a high rate of unemployment and a lot of low cost housing which was developed from a former barracks.

In spite of various social problems, Trier West is a very lively neighborhood, not least because of its many young and restless people. All know each other, families stick together, and the inhabitants love their neighborhood.

Social life takes place on the street with the neighbors and in the summer months -people sit in front of their houses and chat with passers-by. Kids rush up and down the streets with bikes and greet everyone passing their way, and feed upon the demolished gumball machine.

The street called Trierweilerweg is a kind of passage between downtown Trier and Trier West, which you walk through to get to the low cost houses. I lived in this street for two years, and during this time I documented the everyday life of the 150 meter street section I could see from my window.
