An Anthology of Common Conversation is a series of photographs exploring recent social and political changes in the USA from a queer European perspective. The long-term project depicts America, its people, and their surroundings, and attempts to create a visual archive focusing on subjective experience and individual encounters rather than on documentation.
Says Philipp: Since 2015 I have photographed people and places in 34 US states. So far the series consists of 150 images. The project will continue until 2020 and is going to be published as a series of newsprint photo books, of which the first two issues have just been released.
