In 2013 CP Krenkler started the documentation of „Esso-Häuser“. After the hasty evacuation of the housing complex in winter 2014, an unknown artist sprayed "Buy, buy – St. Pauli" onto the site fence in bright, neon orange, which inspired CP Krenkler to continue taking photographs of the neighbourhood.


A series of intimate insights into small stores, cinemas, bars and dives evolved from this. CP Krenkler brought out the inside – in a double meaning – and portrayed all the managers, bouncers, innkeepers and guests in front of their places. In her photography, she connects humans and architecture and created a work that is able to capture the scene between documentation and photographic narration as a contemporary document.
