Birds of Passage
Lens Culture... Birds of Passage - photographs and text by Ingar Krauss. "...More than 300,000 harvest hands come to Germany every year from Eastern Europe. Their season starts with the asparagus harvest in April and ends with cabbage and grapes in autumn. It is interesting to watch the internal dynamics in this kind of migration. Typically most of the workers had come from Poland, but during the last years more and more people have come from further Eastern Europe, from the Ukraine or Romania, while a lot of Polish workers have migrated as far as Sweden and England because they get better pay there."
