This project is a very personal view onto Chicago, the city where I moved to shortly before Covid started. The prolonged lockdown, curfews and riots in 2020 as a result of the murder of George Floyd kept me trapped inside of my apartment most of the time for several months.. I got to know the city mainly through the view out of my windows and started to document these views with a strong longing for being able to move freely  within a city widely unknown to me.

The project title is inspired by the old German fairy tale "Rapunzel", the story of  a girl forcibly held captive by a sorceress and locked in a high, remote tower without a door.
