On 1 April 2015, Laura Hospes found herself in the UCP, a psychiatric ward of the hospital, after a suicide attempt. From the very first day she kept a visual record of herself with her camera, because talking was simply too difficult.With her monochrome, high contrast photos she shared her story with the world around her, which helped her to feel less lonely. The period, that lasted over eight months, resulted in an extended series about a young woman teetering on the brink of a conscious death.Laura decided to make a book of the series, to let the world see and more importantly feel her story. And so the book UCP was created, 1.5 years after this first suicide attempt.

Popularly a standard-bearer for freedom in post-cold war Europe as well as broiling youth culture Mecca, the Berlin in "Lichtquellen" is a black-and-white ghost town. In this visual diary, monuments, balloon animals, and passersby are transfigured by the “dark grainy abyss that one can only find in the city’s notorious winter tristesse” into alternating signifiers of isolation, hope, and sometimes humor. Cuadros' debut collection displays a blend of shadowy urban nightscapes, candid portraiture, and off-the-cuff snaps as he explores the visual poetics of (film) photography.
