For his long-term project Princesses and Football Stars, Daniel Schumann portrays families who have a child with a life-threatening illness. Photographs frequently serve as a document for preserving a cherished memory. This is especially true in cases where a family portrait captures the fragile balance between the wish for normalcy and the tragedy of illness and impending death.
"How do we face up to the fact that our lives are finite? Ever since I did my alternative civilian service in a hospice, confronting this question has been a central aspect of my photographic work. I received a grant from the Arts Foundation of North Rhine-Westphalia for this book project. The result, Princesses and Football Stars, was honored with the Foreign Artist Award at the China Pingyao International Photography Festival 2010. This project will be continued over the next years." Daniel Schumann
