This light struck me. It was just five minutes of extreme beauty. The location is the turbine hall of the Tate Modern museum in London. Some people who must have had the same experience of eternity sat down and layed on their back.
I met these ladies at the Biennale 2013 in Venice, Italy. Think they made an appointment in the morning to wear black. Or not, because it is simply THE color to wear in the art sector, worldwide. Sure they love to be friends and enjoy together. But why do they sit next to the toilets?
These school children do enjoy a day out. The location of their visit is unusual: at the border between communist North Korea and capitalist South Korea. The last remains of the Cold War. I think these were rich kids. The contrast of their behaviour and the knowledge of the history and present situation of this Demilitarized Zone was pretty interesting. They are young, and they’ve fun and enjoy being together.

Marines brought stacks of chairs to a deserted beach in south Cornwall. An hour later, the bride, the groom and an Anglican priest arrived. And she was there too. I love the Fellinesque atmosphere in this image. A glimpse of the innate absurdism of everyday life…
The tube is still closed. A voice blares from the depths that it will open in a few minutes. But the evangelist at the top of the stairs (at the other side, not at the picture) keeps reading from the bible as soon as the announcement is finished.. Oxford Circus, London, United Kingdom, July 2014.
This picture is taken in Callander, a small village near the enormous and rough Scottisch lake district The Trossachs. It was a warm break during an overwhelming road trip through Scotland up to the isle of Skye. I had this thought: “When we’re young, we can’t imagine we’ll ever be like this. But when we’re old, we’re happy for the company.” The gentleman at the left seems to be a bit insecure. Not because of all these ladies surrounding him, I guess. But because he is the only one mentioning my camera…
