Nowhere in the world carnival is bigger than in my hometown of Cologne. It´s celebrated year-round but the peak starts on November,11th and lasts through Ash Wednesday. During that period most of the local bands have more than 200 shows, sometimes ten on one day. I had the chance to follow some of them backstage and found hard working men and women, showbiz professionals and even some of that good old Rock ´n Roll. This is an ongoing project and a homage to my hometown.
