What are you waiting for?

Questions upon questions.

What will my life be like? Will I be happy? Are you proud of me? Where are you? Why am I afraid? Why can’t I do this? If I fly, will I fall? How big is the universe? Will you wait for me? Will we stay together?

Smart children ask smart questions. Some entirely surprising, some questions that everybody has asked themselves before. Britta Teckentrup does not give answers to the questions she has collected but uses her illustrations to underline the meaning and the tremendousness of those questions: for instance when she shows a person standing before an endless expanse, just like some figures by painter Caspar David Friedrich. It means that everything is possible.
