I just saw this article and was amused (but not surprised) by the number of refusals the photographer got.  Surprisingly, the photos are quite respectful and tell interesting stories.  There were a couple of furry-type costumes...anyone we know?

There was a Spiegel Online article + interview of Pichler a couple of months ago. Pichler answers that it was his explicit goal to let the viewer draw their own conclusions from the interior of where he took the photos, from the absurdity of the situation, and that re regrets that so many of his models tidied their rooms before he came.
So my own, personal conclusion is that rejecting his cfp would have been the better choice for his subjects:

By the way, one of his other professional interests seems to be rotten food:
