POINT BLANK: BEHIND THE CURTAIN

“Artists are social sensors and transmitters of ideas”
Natasha Tsakos

 

Since I was a child I love the mysterious feeling being backstage.

It makes you invisible and let you feel this special conspiratorial unity…  …because you already know what will happend next.

It makes you excited, alive and confident…  …because you have no idea what will happend next.

.

This is for all the actors and especially for those who will stay invisible.

 

 

Thanks to the TUZ THEATER in Tver/Russia for your great performance and the fun we had together.

SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMONTS !!!

POINT BLANK: BACKYARD ROMANCE

I love backyards. I love their roughness. Their nativeness.

The silence they want to share with you…  …the stories they want to tell…

…and that very stage they offer you.

POINT BLANK: KIDS IN CAMBODIA

POINT BLANK: ANDREA… …JETAMELE

…it all started with a river.

A river called Elbe, where a single photo of that river made its way downstream to become a wonderful blog…  …feeded by inspiration, longing and the desire to communicate in an unknown language…  …feeded by the influx of many other tributaries… it grew to ‘Every Day My Life’.. JEden TAg MEin LEben..  ..JETAMELE

Andrea, I adore your work, especially you portrait series. It gives me inspiration, new perspectives and the comforting belief that there is someone out there, who sees more and deeper than what our eyes just perceive.

That is a precious gift.

Thank you for sharing that.

POINT BLANK: POLINA

Me and Polina met in August in Tver / Russia and we decide to do a photo shooting the next time when I’ll be around. And so we did.

I was impressed by her talented und versatile way to act in a portrait shooting. Some things just like happen like that. You don’t need to plan. You don’t need to talk…  …you just let things happen.

A delightful day with this wonderful person. Thank you, Polina!  …and I hope we will meet again.

.

Dear Polina,

this is for you. We believe in you! You will make your way!  …just pure believe in yourself!

FAITH, HOPE, LOVE

From it’s small spat’s size to its harvest, a Cancale oyster needs minimum 3 years of work in the bay of Le Mont Saint Michel.

Many handelings are necessary to grow an oyster lapped by the fastest tides in Europe. At low tide part of the vast oyster beds can visited.

Cancale calls himself the “oyster capital” of Brittany. Oysters are bred here in the intertidal zone, namely the Pacific Oyster (5,000 t, as of: 2000) and the rarer European Oyster (1,000 t, as of: 2000). Both varieties enjoy a good reputation among connoisseurs.

POINT BLANK: A SHORT ENCOUNTER

I asked people I met in public…  …on the street, in bars, hotels, restaurants…  …if I could take a potrait of them. Most of those short encounters were just for few seconds. One even ended in a really nice long chat.

There is this question of ‘How good you should know a person to do an authentic portrait?’  …and I asked myself ‘…and what will happen if you do a protrait of someone that you absolutely do not know?’ Will he/she put up a face the he/she want to show to the world?  …I will never know. But what I mean to see is, that there is something really personal in their features which raise the thrilling question of who these people could be like.
