Costa Rica Time Warp
Photographer: Ludwig Thalheimer
Exhibit Title: Costa Rica Time Warp
Location: Costa Rica
The project “Costa Rica Time Warp” shows children from Costa Rica, photographed in 1986, while I was travelling through Central America. I met them in public places, on the streets where they sold newspapers, washed cars, and helped out in their parents’ stalls.
They all told me about their lives, their desires and their dreams for their future. After more than 30 years, I wanted to find out, what had become of these children. In 2017 I set out to search for them, found and photographed them again and recorded their lives. The project provides an unsentimental yet touching insight into very different individual lifes of people in the Central American state of Costa Rica.
In 2018 I published a book about this project.
