Costa Rica Time Warp by Ludwig Thalheimer

Costa Rica Time Warp by Ludwig Thalheimer

In the photography documentary Costa Rica Time Warp there are children who Italian born photographer Ludwig Thalheimer met when he was in Costa Rica in 1986.

He met them in public places, on the streets where they sold newspapers, washed cars, and helped out in their parents’ stalls. These are children who sought refuge on the streets, or those who lived in sheltered gated communities. They told the photographer about their lives, their desires and their dreams for the future.

After more than 30 years, Ludwig Thalheimer wanted to know what had become of these children. In 2017 he set out to search for them, to find them again, to photograph them again and to record their lives. The book provides an unsentimental insight into very different individual life stories.
