Faces of Europe - Interview with photographer Carsten Sander A statement on humanity and shared values

An unusual trip has taken photographer Carsten Sander to all 27 EU member states. His mission? To capture 1,000 portraits of Europeans. The photos are now on show in his travelling exhibition Faces of Europe, which is part of the cultural programme during Germany’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union. In this interview, Carsten Sander talks about his art, chance encounters – and why Europe is well on the way to growing together.
