not everything was bad of course, far from it… i just kind of don’t feel like writing about it here. let’s simply hope for the best next year.
thanks a lot to my friendly followers, the likable likers and the regular regulars! it still is only fun because you are here! i hope to see you all safe, healthy and in good spirit again on the other side.
have a good one!
…and instead of a playlist – here is my honourable mention for song of the year: “the burning hell – i want to drink in a bar” (don’t miss out on this!):
its central topics are the tectonic shifts that happened on all human levels in eastern germany shortly before but mainly after the fall of the wall. featured are the works of 22 photographers among them some very well known photographers like Arno Fischer, Thomas Zielony or the always wonderful Ulrich Wüst. my personal favourites have been the series by Seiichi Furuya, Ludwig Rauch and Ingeborg Ullrich, though. new names to me, nice!
the exhibition is still running until april 8th and it is absolutely recommended not only because of the really really good photography but also for the nice surroundings of schloss biesdorf which also sports a very nice cafeteria.
here are some of my favourite shots from the last twelve months. i’m really happy that on the one hand i’m still liking most of my pictures and that i’m on the other hand really annoyed by some of them. i hope this signifies some kind of development and hopefully for the better :)
photographically it was a very good year with a lot of opportunities and i was quite well prepared for some of them. i guess my personal photography related highlight was my very first exhibition (that is still running until the end of february) at freiluftgalerie berlin. but probably it was scout niblett asking me via flickr whether she could use my picture of her performing in berlin (see above) for some show announcements in the summer! i was really happy about this… i can’t decide.
thanks a lot to all you posting photographers, friendly followers, following friends and likable likers. without you it would be at most half the fun!
