Consolation for Chrismon Magazine
anne ackermann
Mar 31, 2021
What helps us when we feel down?

“Man is a being in need of consolation.” said philosopher Hans Blumenberg. According to him giving consolation to others, just like receiving it, makes us human and we understand that we are all equally vulnerable.

A huge thanks to Chrismon magazine for asking me to create images around the theme of consolation and to the people who allowed me to photograph them. Check the Tearsheet Section on my website for all the spreads.
