a new stranger and a very current subject today (i wrote it before the horrible act happened in nice, italy, yesterday) can be found on our http://blog.100strangers.info website. please come over and read the full story, leave some comment and/or register for our newsletter. enjoy!
our reliable driver who always kept an eye on our safety and joy on the roadtrip through rajasthan and uttar pradesh, in bikaner arranged for a guide at junagarh fort. the guide's name was shailhindra calling himself jitu (which means hero or the one who always wins). He was around his late thirties or maybe 40, approximately a bit older than my age. he at the first glance directly appeared like very confident but not self-absorbed, just convince...

sun and honey

my partner in crime (and other things ...) +Ijon Tichy has a new story, too. even though the meeting took place last christmas it better fits sunny weather. enjoy a warm touch on your face while reading. enjoy!
the image of Amrit Samra a.k.a. Honey is part of my large format christmas project just asking people if they would like their pictures taken on a 9x12 sheet of film. Surprisingly, all people I asked agreed right away and I was able to get 5 of 6 frames I had prepared. when I saw Amrit standing there enjoying the sun, I had to get his picture. of course I was also curious if he just visited town or if he lived in Germany. Amrit agreed right away ...

"Namaste!" 

yeah, here are we again. life is very busy recently. that's why we went a bit lazy posting to the blog. we are very sorry and vow reforming. today i introduce you to the first gentleman we met in india last year to start all over again. this smile once was for my delight, today it's for yours. enjoy it, the picture and the story behind.
we travelled India last year, we already told you that. of course we aimed to make as many friends from strangers as possible and document our journey through rajasthan, utter pradesh and delhi via the faces and stories of people who were going to cross our way, for our personal memories in the first place and for you, kind reader. but mentalities are very diverse, different countries have different people who have different behaviors when it com...

a most successful weekend

last weekend i surpassed myself with buying three cameras at once at a used camera market: 1) mamiya c3, 2) fed-2 in blue, 3) rolleiflex sl2000f, rollei and fed in near new condition, the mamiya very good condition with some dust and glue residuals. besides the purchases on this market i met a bunch of great people and enjoyed the talks. since i was among the very, very few women and younger than 40 the gentlemen were most willing telling me their life stories and offer good prices ;)

here is a test shot taken with the rolleiflex sl200f which might become my favorite 35mm camera. after i figured out how to load the film i started to get amazed by the camera with each click. everything works smooth and easy, the light meter is excellent, the shutter very fast and precise, the handling just great. although i feared to push the shutter accidently, because there are two exposed on each side of the body, it didn't happen. it's absolutely helpful to have a dual viewfinder for eye-level and waist-level, batteries you can buy in every discounter market and changing backs are is easy as abc, even multi-exposures are possible which i miss on many 35mm cameras. there might be too many knobs and levers and wheels and signs on this camera which looks quite complicated in the first place, but after one roll i realized everything useful and practical. i couldn't help myself buying an extra back and the rollei 2.8f 35 on ebay this morning. i am just overwhelmed by this camera. i can't wait to shoot more seriously than a testroll soon.

i only decreased the contrast a little in this picture, because the rollei 400s is a bitchy film with very high contrast that needed to get corrected. no sharpening neither via scan nor lr/ps.

camera: rolleiflex sl2000f
film: rollei 400s (what a bitch)
developer: rodinal

long time no see

but our 100strangers blog goes on and on. here is the most recent story by olga van saane, our dear contributor. come over, read the full story and be part of the zen. enjoy!
My recent trip to South Korea was one flood of impressions. Of biblical scale, pardon the controversy. While I still have to digest my discoveries, to sort out my photographs and thoughts, a few characters I met stand out. They, in their own way, represent and form a complex face of Korean Buddhism I went to learn about. I will not bore you with my thoughts on this rather complicated matter. In zen fashion to approach things as they are, the si...
