Back in 2018 I started my first Camino de Santiago. The Camino is a very famous pilgrims way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain and people from all over the world love to walk this way. The french way – the so called Camino Francés – starts in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port.

Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France

You have to cross the Pyrenees (1400 m, 26 km) on your first day on the Camino.

My first Exhibition

Street Photography

Due to the european General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) I reduced my engagement in street photography. In fact, taking pictures of strangers in the streets without asking them for permission is illegal now. But nevertheless I decided to publish a few of my older street pictures at an exhibition. It is a very new experience for me and I like it.

If you are interested and in Berlin the next days, come and see.

My 2017 in street photography

Street Photography

This year in street photography has been different for me than the three years before. No workshops, no photowalks with others and only a few planned street shootings. Most of the photographs where shot coincidentally, but I trained my skills and had more keepers per shooting. And strolling through the city is a pure joy and a remedy for dark moments.

I’m still interested in candid pictures of strangers but I’m also experimented with geometrical forms. Still processing more photographs in black and white, still digital but with an analog attitude. As a compensation I took a lot of travel and nature photographs.

I like my two mirrorless Fuji cameras but I realized, that I took most of my pics with my smartphone. It’s an unobtrusive, tiny little workhorse with a lab included, available at any time. It’s the easiest way to process my black and white pictures using the app Blackie. Technically spoken I don’t need much more than this combo.

I took part in competitions (like last year), won nothing (like last year) but experiences and got professional feedback. For next year I planned a small exhibition of my work. I’m grown with my pictures and I think, I have a few keepers to show, just for fun.
