Sabbatical – summer 17

This was an amazing but intense year so far. It´s time to take some time off to travel, make new plans, get inspired, make new free work and breath out.

It´s pretty natural for me and my crowd that my camera get´s involved sometimes, I also had to experience again, how talented (and pushy) my friends are, when it came to the point, they wanted to capture me… well, I guess it´s fair enough after all these years of me shooting everyone and the mother.

These are the first two trips, I went sailing in Croatia, invited by my dear friend Brant Richards and went right after to the Garbicz festival in Poland, with a whole gang of amazing lovely and beautiful friends, some of them you can find in the series, but the battery of my camera died, so I am very sorry I couldn’t´t capture all people I made a face paint with…. looking forward for next years garbicz… and of course any sailing trip that´s coming up.

This series I photographed of my talented and beautiful artist friend Gabriella Rioux, in a house in Frohnau, in which an old lady recently passed away. Before everything got removed from her things again, we were able to work in the house on some photographies, which is a part of a long lasting conversation between Gabriella and me about identities and entities, art and love, and of course, life and death.
