Some years ago, I saw a young boy who was running late and desperately wanted to reach his train. He tried to cross the four-lane street in front of the station while the pedestrian light was still red and got hit by a car.

This event inspired the project "Hoffnungslaeufer". For exactly one year I documented people who were running late for their train, bus or tram. All pictures were taken on my way to work and back in Heidelberg main station. The project ran from July 2010 until July 2011.
