I create art (photography and films) about displaced people and their new homes.

In September 2015 I traveled with a Syrian family on their journey from Budapest to Hamburg, and they became my friends. This experience brought me into the theme of refugees and home in a personal way. 

Public opinion about migration has shifted quite a bit since 2015, but the reality is quite different from the rhetoric surrounding refugees.

Many of my stories are about connecting with another human being and finding out what you have in common. This often happens in the quiet moments, over a cup of coffee or tea.

I invite *you* to pour yourself a cup of tea, and explore the stories at www.brotherskeeperintl.com.

If you enjoy what you read, please consider donating a monthly cuppa coffee and sharing this page with your friends.

I am able to focus my time on exploring & representing these stories of relationship, identity, and belonging thanks to my generous team of patrons here on Patreon. 

Thank you to each of you who support me financially and also emotionally by engaging with my work. This year I went to Lesvos in June 2018 and will be returning 21 November - 16 December 2018. This is possible because of you!

What I love about Patreon is that people can be a patron of the arts for as much or as little as they want. And every little counts. =)

Love from Berlin,
Talitha

I am actively entering into people's worlds when I tell their stories - being invited into their homes to represent ordinary and intimate moments of their lives. Your support helps me to afford to go *and* have a home to come back to. <3

You are basically a classical Renaissance patron of artists, scholars and poets.  You understand my vision & art form and because of you, I'm able to move within some of the most difficult situations. 


Some of the most in-depth and complex stories can only be told over a period of time. Your support allows for that time and relationship building to tell truthful and unbiased testimonies.

As a "Thank You" I will personally update you quarterly about the work, including both the successes and the challenges.

Goals
$1,441 of $2,500 per month

Join me in advocating for refugees and sharing firsthand stories that need to be heard!
