…not too far from Brighton/UK
…as every year. Some views on Fluff Fest – the place, some friends, some bands:
The Arson Project
Colour Me Wednesday in Erlangen/May 2018
…while the record of the same name is playing in the other room I have a hard time separating good from bad memories and can`t help but think about how everything felt at that time. Seven years ago. Doing photography or whatever for a living really felt like a possibility. Everything was indeed perfect on that little tour I did with Solander and I had no idea what was about to happen. Possibilities… thank you Solander.
…this place that I am spending a lot of time at where I meet people being active in a lot of different ways – this time only musicians.
More to come…
Phil of the band Tender Defender
Shawn William Clarke and Abigail Lapell
Marcus of the band Scraps Of Tape
… seeing the Band Hope perform brought back a lot of memories of the time when they asked me to take pictures of their old band project. Since back then I was able to follow their way. I am trying to describe the feeling that I have thinking that it`s wonderful to witness the creative process of four individuals through some photographs (that probably weren`t even my best work at times). I think I am… also… proud to have done that. Thank you Phillip, Christine, Martin, Fabian.
As some of you may have realized, I have been part of an exhibition recently. Conditions were discussed beforehand: I was told that my costs will be covered and I didn`t expect more… maybe some interest in my work. After the exhibition the curator wrote an email telling me that, unfortunately, there is not enough money for all expenses (he just did not apply for enough money/funding beforehand). This exhibition was part of a bigger project/workshop at the university. A friend of mine organized the exhibition and asked me to join. The project manager, I was told, will deal with the refunding of my expenses later. But instead of returning the money I spent on the prints, he stated how it is a pity that everyhing is about money! Well, that is easy to say if you have a decent job within culture industry… It`s just so offensive to be told that money and payment are not an issue if you need to pay rent, buy food from this money. Everyone who is following my work and/or this page realizes that I am not in it for the money but to expect that you are being paid for the work and effort is not too much to ask. Thanks for reading.
