is my passion.
For me, the use of analog cameras with conventional film is part of this.
This is the only way in which the photos can meet my standards.
The click of a mechanical shutter release, the hum of the film winder,
the taste of peppermint on the tongue when gumming an exposed film
The uncertainty when developing the film, the gradations of sharpness
and the characteristic graininess of the film on the prints.
Composing a picture, coming to terms with my motifs and the great
variety of human characteristics.
Handling available light, experimenting with unusual perspectives,
back-lighting and lack of sharpness through movement.
For me all of this is part of the passion of taking photographs, and I
can give rein to my creativity in this context – always trying to
create a world of images that is natural, harmonious and empathetic.
