The series of images in "we will have been young" have a common topic - youth and the future. It captures a socio-cultural kaleidoscope of the life of the young people in the vibrant context of economic progress and globalization in those Southeast Asian countries. The visual stories deal with diverse issues - online dating and the transformation of relationships, illnesses and their psychological effects, family constellations and identities, nostalgia and transience, social housing and urbanization, psycho-social challenges, the marginalization of Aboriginal people, homosexuality and the search for a sense of belonging, club scenes as a sign of revolt, creative Vespa clubs, gender-identity in school children, abuse and the longing for a feeling of home.

Youth is a universal subject; photography is a universal language."
- Jörg Brüggemann and Tobias Kruse


"we will have been young" was launched at the OBSCURA Festival of Photography 2017 in Malaysia and is currently travelling in Southeast Asia and onwards to the Asia-Pacific region and Germany. It has recently been in Singapore and Indonesia making Philippines its third stop.
