Oktoberfest Portraits 2009

Beginning with the 90s and especially in the course of the 00s, the Oktoberfest changed more and more into a so-called Bavarian costume festival. The spectrum of these clothes ranged from low cost overcoats, cheap mass costumes to more expensive fashionable costume creations. Even fringe groups benefit from the free movement of costumes at the Oktoberfest, they wear their “own” costume, no matter how extreme it is. And yes, there are also the really traditional costumes, but these are rarely or only on a few days to see. The gray mices of the Oktoberfest are the usually dressed ones, a minority of invisible strollers.

Despite this carnival-like setting, the people remain the most interesting part of this folk festival. That is what I ultimately want to show with this series.
