I have always been president
I have been following Frank Walter Steinmeier for years – starting as a close ally to Gerhard Schröder, then being the second powerful poltician next to Angela Merkel. He ran against her in the 2009 elections – I was assigned to shoot his campaign. He led the social-democratic opposition in the Bundestag when I joined him in his daily routines in the morning and drove in his car through Berlin. State Secretary, again. Now: Federal President of Germany. What comes next? One thing is for sure: He will never leave his calm and always-smiling way of acting. Some things in the world stay how they are.
