Real diary (653) im Rückspiegel


“Photography to me is catching a moment which is passing, and which is true.”

Jacques-Henri Lartigue

Berlin. With another academic year in mind.

“You have a lifetime to learn technique. But I can teach you what is more important than technique, how to see; learn that and all you have to do afterwards is press the shutter.”

 Garry Winogrand


Real diary (651) im Rückspiegel

“There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described I like to think of photographing as a two way act of respect. Respect for the medium, by letting it do what it does best, describe. And respect for the subject, by describing it as it is. A photograph must be responsible to both.”

Garry Winogrand

Berlin. Mediterranean colors.


Das Leben ist kein Ponyhof.

Berlin, am Mauer.

Stripes, no stars.

(I begin to understand Garry Winogrand)

“The photograph should be more interesting or more beautiful than what was photographed.”
