Matthias Jung, born in 1967 in Herford, studied communication design at the University of Essen. Since 1995 he has worked as a freelance photographer for theatres, magazines and companies. He lives and works near Cologne. His works and reportages have been awarded the Hansel-Mieth Prize 2001, among others. In 2008, he received a scholarship from the VG Bild-Kunst. Matthias Jung is, among other things, the initiator of the 2013 project "Elf Uhr Elf" (Eleven o'clock eleven), for which 9 photographers dealt with the phenomenon of carnival in Cologne.
The exhibited work is part of a current reportage on the Ruhr region. In it, he complements landscape panoramas of the area with portraits of its inhabitants.
The dramatic twilight of the "Elsdorf" scene is reminiscent of compositions by the American photographer Gregory Crewdson.
