Ben Kilb | Castor transport

My short photo essay is a series about the protest against the Castor transport of nuclear waste in Lower Saxony/Germany in early November 2010. For three days people were demonstrating and blocking rails to keep the train carrying the waste from reaching its destination, the permanent disposal site in Gorleben. In the end the transport was delayed by almost one day.
I usually work as a photojournalist, but this time I went without assignment and completely ignored the conventional journalistic value of my photos. I wanted to see how my photos appeared without any primary intention to report. I shot, more or less, just for me and used this approach to deepen my photographic language. I wanted to feel more as a protester than a journalist.
It resulted partially in my images looking like shots about some post-apocalyptic scenario and not like photos about a protest.
