Four C-Prints on Alu Dibond, 42 × 29.7 cm each
Kira Bunse’s photo series Tropez is another declaration of love to the visitors of the Sommerbad Humboldthain. On the outer wall of the kiosk, visible to those waiting in line for fries, are Till, Eugene, Thierri, and Linus. At the beginning of the season, Bunse photographed portraits of these and nine other young men in the grounds of TROPEZ. They are just as much a part of the pool as french fries and ice cream. The last traces of childhood are still visible on their bodies, but in their eyes gleams the insolent self-confidence of young adults. A calendar with all of the photographs is available at the kiosk.
