POINT BLANK: A WALK IN THE DARK

“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.”

(Aleksander Blok)

.

“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark,

than alone in the Light”

(Helen Keller)

.

Thanks for the walk with a friend, Lena.

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: ‘TANZOMANIA’

Andrea and me got the great chance to participate at TANZOMANIA’s final practice for the European Grand Prix in Tallin at Johns dancing school in Tver/Russia. But don’t worry, we didn’t dance…  …we just documented it by our photos.

This European Grand Prix was a great success for TANZOMANIA. Several gold an silver medals. Wow, congrats to you all!!!

But what I admire the most is, with how much enthusiasm and lifeblood John, Olya, Alyona, Losha and Losha convey the spirit of dancing to the children. My deepest respect to you all for create such a precious activity.

POINT BLANK: KHATUNA / ხათუნა

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.

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: 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: TVER CITY FESTIVAL


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.
