regression to the mean (2019)

the remains of the year, the remains of a decade. 2019 was a strange year. on to the double twenties!

happy new year to all my friendly followers, viewing visitors and courteous commenters!

i’m glad that some people out there still visit this little blog and make the (admittedly not so huge) efforts appear worthwhile to me after all these years.

i’ve noticed on this blog’s statistics page that the amount of words in my posts is on a steady decline. i’m not writing as much as i did in earlier years here on this blog. i think that’s mainly an issue of time and of course because i’m trying to tell my stories with pictures. but nevertheless i found that somewhat disconcerting.

maybe i will start writing more about my photography, my pictures, my tools in 2020. maybe not. we’ll see. it’s a process that i’m not really enforcing but i could imagine that at least some information about tools (read: lenses and cameras and postprocessing stuff) could be of interest to at least some of you. if nothing else i know i am always interested in that kind of stuff ;-)

biennaaaale, ohoo…

la biennale (arte) di venezia is one of the world’s largest exhibitions of contemporary art. and if this wasn’t already a good enough reason to go there it takes place in the great city of venice.

the biennale is all over the place in venice! the city is full with public art in public places (the so-called collaterals). the two main sites of the biennale are the giardini (the gardens) and the arsenale (the former giant shipyard of venice erected in the 14th century), though and you have to pay for entry there. here are some impressions from the sites we managed to visit:

la biennale di venezia 2019 is still running until the 24th of november 2019.

.documenting.the.obvious will resume normal operations soon… stay tuned!

beholding biennale

la biennale (arte) di venezia is one of the world’s largest exhibitions of contemporary art. and if this wasn’t already a good enough reason to go there it takes place in the great city of venice. after visiting documenta 14 this year in kassel we went further down to italy and had a great stay in the venetian lagoon. and of course we went off to see the biennale.

the biennale is all over the place in venice! the city is full with public art in public places (the so-called collaterals). the two main sites of the biennale are the giardini (the gardens) and the arsenale (the former giant shipyard of venice erected in the 14th century), though and you have to pay for entry there.

the following pictures are mostly from these two main sites and offer a small glimpse into the spectacular stuff that is shown there. and maybe they can even convey a little bit of the fantastic atmosphere.

the biennale is ongoing until the 26th of november 2017, so there’s still almost a month to go.

otherwise see you there in 2019 :)
