YOU NEVER WALK ALONE !!!
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!
Natasha, psychoanalyst, practices in Tver and Moscow/Russia, was always fascinated by portraits where features of a person captured on photos.
…and so we tried… ..no concept, no rules… …we just let go… …and danced…
Natasha, thank you for that dance. 🙂
Khatuna / ხათუნა, or Khatya like we call her, has the meaning ‘lady’ (in persian).
I think I remember that Khatya told us that the georgian meaning is something like ‘fate’….
….however it is… …I know that this wonderful lady and her partner (our friend Bonya) will take fate in their own hand! … and they will be succeed in all respects.
Hey, you both… …long may you run… …and stay forever young.
please see here at JETAMELE how Andrea has seen Khatya.
This is Kristina from Moscow. Smart, intelligent and charming. A really nice person. Purser at AEROFLOT airlines.
All this nice moments of 2017. A good year.
Thanks for all!

A ‘POINT BLANK & JETAMELE’ Project
“What I’ve also seen …”
Sure, on a mutual photo tour there not only things to capture that attracting the same attention of both photographers. Mostly it’s about the small things that we see with our own eyes… …and sometimes it’s just the right moment for yourself to capture that what YOU see in a totally different context…
…therefor see as well at Andreas story at JETAMELE

This friday we get stucked at the Moscow airport. We had to stay the whole night in cause of a thunderstorm. I know this airport from all my flight to Russia pretty well, but it was a strange calm feeling to see this place at night. It was great to sneak around and discover this otherwise so crowded halls.
