EDITIONS

The collections reflect something of the diversity and practice of my photography: capturing events and people on my travels to Cuba, a personal photographic diary filled with the contradictions and beauty of everyday live. – The collections offer you the opportunity to purchase an original print, signed and numbered.   

CUBA

HAVANA | diary

‘Street photography’ does not require any additional means, only the endurance and patience of the photographer is needed. But reality only begins to take effect when endurance becomes exhaustion and patience becomes aimlessness.

” It’s about finding order in what may at first seem like chaos. It’s about simplifying what you see and distilling everything into a single, coherent frame. Classic compositional techniques like leading lines, foreground, symmetry and rules of thirds come into play and it’s all about finding the right spot; – all this takes time. But there is also the reverse, you are ‘at one’ with time and ‘are’ in the right place, along with what is happening around you. You are no longer looking for the right detail, the images come to you, you just have to take them in, because you have earned them by walking to them. Step by step. And with each step you’ve forgotten something about yourself and at the same time you learned something new.”

CUBA

MALECON

The Malecon is the heart of Havana. Construction of the first section began in 1901. At the point where the Paseo del Prado meets the Atlantic Ocean, the wide avenue that separates Habana Vieja and Centro Habana.

The Salesman

“The salesman sits still and insignificantly at the sales window, waiting for passers-by who want to buy something from the few things he has to offer. The grid seems to additionally cross him out in his cross-hatching and to underline his insignificance; only his gaze penetrates the grid and a vaguely undefined desire becomes visible, the cause of which he has long forgotten.”

VIEW FROM THE INSIDE

Silence

“There is something I love about photography. Silence. And when inner stillness leads to outer stillness, there is something fulfilling about that for me. There is this inward gaze that brings everything external into harmony, because it engages completely with what is. It doesn’t try to create something, it doesn’t leave anything out, it only perceives. The gaze inwards merges with its surroundings and everything falls into place as if by itself.”

CUBA

State at Play

The collection shows a nation and its people in the context of an eternal crisis, in play with the daily political and social struggle for survival.

“The single individual, the singular, the solitary, is my real theme. To be for oneself, to be in oneself. It doesn’t matter how close I get to a person, it’s almost that I can only perceive them properly from a distance, see them and feel their inner struggle. Because I don’t have to explain myself, I don’t have to behave, I just see. Two sensations overlap: the feeling of being for me and the feeling of being in someone else.”
