This was an illustration series commissioned by German magazine Der Spiegel for a special on the increase of burglaries in Germany in recent years. The clearance rate for these crimes is disturbingly low. This causes a lot of pain for the victims. They are left with a feeling of vulnerability, as their most private space has been invaded and does not seem safe to them anymore.
The illustrations ran over three left hand pages. They show the act of crime, the discovery and the aftermath on an exemplary scene. My idea would be that a reader would ideally flip back and forth and compare the scenes.
Below there are also some of the sketches I made.
