I was ask to do a fashion shoot for the new DRYKORN fall/winter collection 2019/20. Yes of course. With pleasure. To enter new territory… …and the world of posing. But, hey, why these poses seems so familiar for me even here in Russia in ‘real life’… 🙂
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. 🙂
Valeriya… …at the window… …just one wonderful square meter to play with light…
“And I’ve missed your ginger hair
And the way you like to dress
Won’t you come on over
Stop making a fool out of me
Why don’t you come on over Valerie?”
Valeriya, my co-worker friend. Her first photo shoot.
Dear Lera, thank you for this delightful photo shooting. It was wonderful to work with you. 🙂
The nine y/o Rita and me didn’t met before… ….but after 30 seconds we knew that we both will have a lot of fun to do that photo shooting.
Happy birthday to you. All the best for you and stay as nice, open, curious, lively, positive, sensitive and stunning as you are !!!
…and, YES, of course you become an actress. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Molokovo Orphanage, 350 km north of Moscow deep in the hinterland.
The cooperation with this orphanage started in 2014. What to say… …it’s just about sharing, reaching hands, joy and love.
“No one has ever become poor by giving.”
“Love is not patronizing and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same — with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but reach out your hand instead.”
Thanks to the helping hands of my friends of the JOHN SHOW and Aleksandra Nurmetova from TUZ Theatre.
Special thanks to Michail Anatoljevitsh and all the other good hearts of the Molokovo Orphanage. YOU all are the real heroes !!!
model: Svetlana Jelchaninova (Спасибо Света, это было очень весело !!!)
Thank you, Sveta, for the fun telling this story together!
Kamchatka / Russia.
East… ..very far east… …57°North / 160°East… …only 20° to the international date line. A eight hour domestic flight inside Russia. Eight hours time difference to Moscow time… ..but still inside Russia.
Fishing, gold mining , wild bears, volcanoes… …a trip that makes you feel far away… ..in distance and time. Priceless.
Frankly spoken… …clubbing and Markus usually do not go hand in hand… …except there is a reason. A very good reason. 🙂
KRISTINA is a good friend of us since years and we enjoyed this night at the CITI club a lot! Dancing, photographing and a lot of champagne. That was fun.
She is a wonderful and charming person with a very good heart. I guess that is attracting attention. You have to meet her. A few weeks ago on our flight to Moscow she has been addressed by everyone… …and everybody was wondering about my role in our ‘relationship’. So my role switched in just two hours between “..your husband”, “..your father”, “..your boyfriend” to “..your friend”… …and that is a role which I can except with pleasure. 😉
“Ночь, улица, фонарь, аптека,
Бессмысленный и тусклый свет.
Живи ещё хоть четверть века —
Всё будет так. Исхода нет.
Умрёшь — начнёшь опять сначала
И повторится всё, как встарь:
Ночь, ледяная рябь канала,
Аптека, улица, фонарь.”
“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark,
than alone in the Light”
Thanks for the walk with a friend, Lena.
🙂 …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.
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.
All of you a happy new year!
May we all enjoy the good things
And face the bad things with a confident smile
