…come closer


🙂   …of course they did not stare at me…  …but I kindly asked if I could take a portrait of them….  …and they mostly agreed. I didn’t know these people in person…  …but I know Aleksei Jogolev (#05) and this event was the opening of the exhibition of his paintings in Tver/Russia. Excellent paintings…  …and excellent people.

    • 🙂 🙂 ..das wirkt echt so als ob ich grade Schelte kriege… …der Gute war aber so begeistert von den Gemälden die dort hingen, dass er spontan ein Gedicht zitiert hat… …was ich ziemlich klasse fand.

    • Peter, I absolutely agree with you. I can’t remember ever been at an exhibition with so many nice and friendly people… …guess they were all impressed by the excellent paintings… …or the served vine 🙂 😉 …or both! 🙂

  5. You were obviously born to be photographer. Look how happy the sight of you and your camera makes people! And then we are happy just looking at them! Most excellent!

  11. Wonderful series of portraits Markus. Making these photos at an opening is a great idea. I hope the exhibition has been a success.

    • Thank you so much, Simon. I liked the idea to portrait people at an exhebition, because there is always a special mood. And the exhibion of my friend Alexseij was a good success!

  12. Superschöne, ansprechende Serie! Toll, wie offen jeder dieser Menschen in die Kamera schaut – das muss am Fotografen liegen;-)! Gefällt mir sehr gut!

    • Freut mich wirklich, dass es dir gefällt. 🙂
      Ich liebe ja die Idee fremde Menschen einfach zu porträtieren. Hab’ ich ja schon ein paarmal gemacht… …deshalb finde ich den Satz von dir sehr interessant “muss am Fotografen liegen” (Danke schön dafür), weil der einen ganz anderen Aspekt darstellt, als ich mir vorher vorgestellt hatte. Es sollte eigenlich ‘Menschen ganz unbefangen darstellen’ werden. Mein Freund Alekseij meinte nachher nur: “Du weißt ja, dass die alle auch auf deiner Ausstellung waren?!” Hmm.. ..ich glaube schon, dass man ein wenig anders schaut, wenn man in die Kamera von jemandem schaut, dessen Ausstellung man besucht hat. Trotzdem finde ich die Blicke sehr herzlich und offen. 🙂
