Licht des Nordens…

 

…from a trip to Hamburg:

 

a visit at the listening station at Balduintreppe–a project against institutional racism.

Die sogenannte Sächsische Schweiz…

 

»Man versehe sich zu dieser Reise mit einem guten Fernrohr, einem festen mit einem Stachel versehenen Stock, einem festen bequem fortzubringenden Trinkgeschirr, Limonade, einem Messer, einem kleinen eisernen Instrument, Pinsel und trockene Farbe, um seinen Namen einzuzeichnen … Man reise in Stiefeln mit Absätzen. – Modesohlen ohne Absätze können auf glatten anhängigen Wegen gefährlich werden …« (Wilhelm Lebrecht Götzinger. Verhaltens-Regeln für diejenigen, welche die Sächsische Schweiz bereisen, 1804)

 

 

My exhibition…

… was probably the photographic project I put the most thoughts into this year. This resulted in questions that I used as a describtion/topic for the exhibition. Can I reach an audience outside of the internet, are people still interested in seeing photographs or in talks with the photographer? Not to many in my experience. While I was lucky with the opening there were days when no one showed up (thank you to those that did!). I understand it has to do with were and how to present things. In my 21st year of doing photography I am able (sometimes) to cope with it and learned to not expect to much. Still I find myself wishing for a little more attention. So was it a success? I am writing yes and no. And I wonder what to do next…
