POINT BLANK: DIANA AND JEVGEIJNI

“For millions of years flowers have been producing thorns. For millions of years sheep have been eating them all the same. And it’s not serious, trying to understand why flowers go to such trouble to produce thorns that are good for nothing? It’s not important, the war between the sheep and the flowers? It’s no more serious and more important than the numbers that fat red gentleman is adding up? Suppose I happen to know a unique flower, one that exists nowhere in the world except on my planet, one that a little sheep can wipe out in a single bite one morning, just like that, without even realizing what he’d doing – that isn’t important? If someone loves a flower of which just one example exists among all the millions and millions of stars, that’s enough to make him happy when he looks at the stars. He tells himself ‘My flower’s up there somewhere…’ But if the sheep eats the flower, then for him it’s as if, suddenly, all the stars went out. And that isn’t important?”
(Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince)

POINT BLANK: FASHION SHOOT

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’…  🙂


POINT BLANK: BEHIND BLUE EYES

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. 🙂

 


POINT BLANK: ALEKSANDRA

Yes, I know, it sounds like a cheap excuse…  …but I need photos of nude women for a photo-painting-exhibition of me and my russian painter friend Alexeij.

Thanks to my female co-worker Aleksandra we started and finished the photo shoot very, very spontaneously. For both of us it was the first nude session…  …and it was fun..  ..a lot.

Frankly spoken it was just a test how to work with lights…   …but frankly spoken…  …wow…  …thanks, dear Aleksandra…   ….you look great…  …and yes, let’s do more! 🙂


POINT BLANK: PEOPLE THAT STARING AT ME AT AN EXHIBITION !

🙂   …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.


POINT BLANK: …COVER ME !

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…

POINT BLANK: LOW TIDE

“In high seas or in low seas
I’m gonna be your friend
He said, “I’m gonna be your friend”

I’ll be by your side”

POINT BLANK: PRICELESS MOMENTS 2018

We use to call that time between christmas and new year “between the years”. I do love this term. Because it seems that that you got some extra time beyond the usually counting of time.

.

A time where you can reflect, review. Think about this great moments, all the shit that happend…  …and all the diamonts you found in the everyday life.

.

So, earth keeps on turning around…  …a new year will start…  …let’s rock it!

PIONT BLANK: LENA

Lena Fomina, actress in Tver/Russia

What would you do if you got the chance to do a photo shoot with an actress? Would you make up a story? Reenact scenes?

Or would you dare to tell the most exciting and intimate story?  –  So we did!

THIS IS THE LENA STORY.

.

Lena, thank you so much for your smiles and your sadness, for the play and the truth, for the distance and the nearness…  …and of course for just beeing Lena.

Лена, большое спасибо за твои улыбки и твою грусть, за игру и правду, за расстояние и близость … … и, конечно, за то, что ты просто была Леной.

Please see Andreas Lena story at JETAMELE

 


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: OYSTER FARM

Oyster farming in Cancale / Brittany

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: CATCHER OF THE RAY

It’s an illusion that photos are made with a camera…  …they are made with the eye, heart and head.” (Henri Cartier-Bresson)

Reinhold Staden is a true catcher of the ray. I’m fascinated by his work and it was a great pleasure to follow him in his world of landscape photography. Besides the above mentioned skills, I was impressed how Reinhold use his ability to dive into his imagination to combine his technique, endurance and claim for quality.

In this post you’ll find some impression of Reinholds field of work in the beautiful Ammerland/Lower Saxonia/Germany. A man at work.

Here you will find a collection of his wonderful works on REINHOLD STADEN PHOTOGRAPHY.
