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 of an exemplary scene. My idea would be that a reader would ideally flip back and forth and compare the scenes.
Art direction by Michaela Herold.
