Around Oxford Circus

A friend of mine is currently exploring 
the impact of rooms in staged photography..
during my stay in London I think I understood
at least a little bit about the impact of the streets
and a certain city for streetphotography.
Thanks you Streets of London for that lesson.

A farewell to spring

Some can see the first traces
of summer, slowly coming in
and spring is waving farewell..
So far it was a fantastic year to me..
How was yours?

Message to the self


During the  only rainy morning  while I was in London I did visited the Tate Modern. It did not know what I expected but it was fun and inspirative being there .

Mathias Goeritz artwork "Message c."1959 is one which stop me for a while and resonated in me. This one is my version.
If you ever make it there.. take yours ;-)

The word of the prophets are written on subway walls..

and tenement halls
And whispered in the sound of silence."

...
The saying goes that an image can say more than 1000 words,
I guess it is even more true for a graffitti..



Best viewed with this music (in my imagination)

At the gallery of Selfs

I do think that artists did 
Self portraits during all ages
from the first time we recognized ourselves
in a mirror - since we were aware about us,
us as a person, as an individual.

Today in behavioural  psychology the mirror tests determines whether a non-human animal possesses the ability of self-recognition -must humans will pass this test in age of 18 month mostly.
And from that time onward I do think that our  curiosity about ourself, is growing. As adolescents we start trying out different roles, different life styles till we start to follow settle a bit  later in our lives.

Self portraiture is a way to either gives answers to the questions
like  "Who I am?", or tell stories from "... what I experienced" or "The Great comedians".

So all the great portraits you'll see when following the hashtag #bwproject26  today will show you a different story about what defines us as persons. It is well worth seeing them all.

Or as Shakespeare did put it:
All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.

Oriental delights of Chinatown


The diversity of the architecture some can see in London
does match with the diversity of people some 
meet in London. 
A hotspot of both is Chinatown...

Had a delightful afternoon there shoting some street shots.

Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow. – Imogen Cunningham
Introduction
About Photography:

"Photography as a spiritual practice:
a discipline that allows me a thousand new perspectives on the world.
A discipline that takes me to a place of reverence. 
To a place where I can be  the watcher,
the appreciator, the celebrator and, ultimately,
just the lover of the incredible beauty it allows me to witness."
Dewitt Jones

About "Learning to see":
"Don’t worry about being better than anybody you know personally or whose work you admire. Simply try to be better tomorrow than you were yesterday. You are not so much in competition with others as you are with yourself. Be your own toughest critic. Show only your best and develop your self-editing abilities so you know just what your best is. Beyond that,..., I’d suggest not spending all your time looking at other photographers but to look at other artists, painters, in particular, painters throughout the centuries. See how they take space and divide it, portion it out; how they capture your eye and attention with their use of a given space. How you put your pictures together is what will separate you from others, not in any revolutionary way, but in the way  you draw or do not draw a viewer in to your pictures. It’s not rocket science and it’s not necessarily even a craft now that digital imaging making prevails,  but it can be an art."
William A. Allard

About Artists:

About me:
I'm a man, a husband, a father, and a product manager most of the day.
The rest of my time I want to use my skills of photography to show others the beauty of the world as I see it!

About my photography:
If you would ask my what my style is,
than I would answer probably, that I don't have one specifc style.
And after two or three years thinking and searching about my style
I think I go with Guy Tal which written this wonderful article about
"Forget Vision"
which simply says "Forget about personal style, forget unique vision"

and

"The most meaningful art you can make should not be about visual effects
but about the way you respond to and interpret the world"

Some of my  images are romantic, some moody, some dark, some tell about life, the streets or the seasons and some are abstract work or minimalistic.As a poet does not concentrate on one form of poems , I don't want to concentrate on one form of images or mood.
If anything I would say  I'm a visual poet which show his inner truth, his inner interpretation of the world around - this is the connection between  my images and subjects.
As mannifold as the forms of poetry as mannifold my images are.
