My introduction of Markus Mehring’s photography blog.

All photographs in this post are property and copyright of Markus Mehring.

5 months ago I saw the blog of Markus for the first time. I was impressed. And I came closer.

At that point in time I didn’t know that he is a traveller who likes to sit on the window seat of an airplane to watch the scenery, that he hates arrogance and intolerance, that friendship is a very precious gift and value to him and that his name read backwards in a Russian dialect means ” the one who loves images”.

The last fact was obvious to me. Just look at these!

Cuba ...music - CHARMING

Cuba …music – CHARMING

Cuba ...music - CLOSE UP

His photographs remind me of the great days of film cameras, the geniuses of black and white photography and the careful selection and capture of precious moments.

I was “tuned in” from the first minute (view) and I think that he is a great talent in any kind of photography. Street, portrait, architecture and stills.

The series which impressed me most is THE DACHA ..MY REFUGE. I will link here to 3 examples of his fascinating series only. You should check out this highly recommended series by yourself. Believe me… it’s worth it.

I could continue adding links to his awesome, remarkable and stunning photography for ages. But you should find all the gems by yourself.

Thank you so much for your award nomination (which I had to turn down…I run an award free blog), your support and your inspiring comments to my posts, Markus. I hope this post will direct a few of my active supporters to your blog and we will continue to share great photography with each other and all others.
