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: 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

POINT BLANK: WINTERSCHLAF

Machen wir uns nichts vor. Der Sommer ist vorbei. Trotzdem ist es schön die Sonnenstrahlen zu geniessen und in den Winterschlaf von Tver/Russland einzutauchen.

Hibernation is a covert preparation for a more overt action.

Der Winterschlaf ist eine verdeckte Vorbereitung für eine weit offenere Aktion.

…so I enjoyed my stroll through the wintry sleepy city of Tver, to look forward for all the surprises the city will keep ready for me.

POINT BLANK: “H O R I Z O N S” , PHOTO EXHIBITION / MARKUS MEHRING

If you are around, please come and visit the grand opening of my photo exhibition HORIZONS at the 23rd of September in Tver / Russia.

H O R I Z O N S….          …recognize, approach, exceed

With the 36 photo prints I try to treat 12 different kinds of categories of horizons that we encounter in our daily life like e.g. geographic, social, cultural, technical or emotional horizons and more.

“Everyone who crosses a horizon makes the world a bit bigger for us … … more diverse, more hopeful, more open … … and the longing grows within us to cross horizons as well!”

 

But fortunately I’m not alone on the trip to discover horizons. Andrea (JETAMELE) will support me with her way of interpret horizons with prints of her great work.

POINT BLANK: ICE FISHING

Calm, balanced and a bit taciturn was the first approach with the ice fishermen. But after a brief chat about technique, wheater and the right fishing lures the ‘ice’ had melted. They let me do my shots to capture the peace and serenity of this hobby. But I think that ‘hobby’ is is not the right term. Some concider it as sports. Some as hunting…  …and for some is it a complementary livelihood. This images I took in late February at the frozen river Volga in the city of Tver/Russia.
