“THE LIVING SOULS”
…they love …they suffer …they smile …they fight
At the 04.01.2020 we opened my photo exhibition at the Sverkov Gallery in Tver/Russia.
Contrary to Gogols ‘Dead Souls’ I found so many living souls in Russia during my portraits shootings, that I decide to share this in form of an exhibition.
Devided in four categories the photos were spread over halls of these wonderful gallery.
- GENESIS , from painting to photography: A photgrafically interpretation of works of the painter Alexeij Jogolev
- CHILDHOOD, the living souls of the kids
- THE LIFE, a variation of deep emotions
- PLACES WITH SOUL
This day was stunning. I’m still deeply moved. So many nice people and chats. I never expected so many emotions shared together that day.
This opening was supported by pianist Jewgenij Sokolowski who interpreted the photography in his unique style live at the grand piano.
My lovely thanks to my wife Victoria, the magic Boutique Anthropologie (especially Anatol), Diana & Evgenij (you both are great), everybody from the Sverkov Gallery, John & Losha, Alexeij, the most beautiful models in the world (Valeria, Kate und Sasha), all the nice people for dancing through the portrait shootings and everybody who made this night unforgettable !

YOU NEVER WALK ALONE !!!
All of you a merry xmas and a stunning 2020! Rock it!
…and of course Darlene again:
Anton, born in Kaliningrad, lives in Moscow. I don’t know his age. I don’t know his exact profession… …but that really doesn’t matter. We encounter each other as two persons who are curious and open and we want to try out what happened, when two strangers encounter in a photo shooting.
An excellent time we had. Thank you, Anton for your open and communicative way. See you early January.
Last week I met the wonderful Anna, psychoanalyst from Moscow, for a photo shooting in Russia.
It was so delightful to work with such a sensitive, smart, beautiful and open hearted woman, that is able to show a part of her soul at our first encounter.
After a few hours of work, talk, fun and a spontaneous dinner, we both decide to exhibit images we captured that day for my photo exhibition THE LIVING SOULS in January in Russia.
Hey, who else could better stand for a living soul than you, Anna. Thank you for that special day!
Tver / Russia
Thank you, Diana! Wow, that was magical! What a ride.. …and shine on you crazy diamond
Do you know what will happen when a photografer and an manifold gifted actress like Lena will collide head-on at full speed ??? …point blank… …and both love music…
THIS WILL HAPPEN:
SINGLE COVERS !
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.
this is for you. We believe in you! You will make your way! …just pure believe in yourself!
FAITH, HOPE, LOVE

I was overwhelmed by the loving cohesion and affection that was felt between the three on our trip to St. Petersburg. Not intrusive or in vain, but always present.
“It’s true that nothing in this world makes us so necessary to others as the affection we have for them.”
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
