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.

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.

 

 


POINT BLANK: NARROWNESS

Is there a common sense of nearness? …I mean my chosen topic was ‘narrowness’. Is there a common feeling which differs between that? Or does it make sense to find the answer in the given diversity of that what we find around us?
