But, Butt, Boobs

It rained all day today, I had not muse to photograph, and since this is my writing week and have a weekend booked solid with photo sessions, I felt a little rebellious and decided to go diving in my archives for something different. And I was not disappointed! All four images were taken, you guessed

A belated gift

July is my special month this year. It has always been a unique time in my life in one way or another, but things have a peculiar manner of converging as milestone moments or turning points. There have been some good years, and some very unfortunate ones. Nevertheless, it was July when I received my

Celebrating with Marigolds and Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas and Marigolds have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and hydrangeas in particular have fascinated me since childhood. Sadly, I somehow always ended up living in countries where it was far too hot to grow them in our own garden, so I admired them in other people’s

Empowered!

This is literally a labour of love! Empowered originally came out as a series of photographs that celebrated Maike´s 22nd birthday. Ever since she moved in with me in February, having had to escape the #lockdown2020 in Florence, we began our own CORONA photography project here in Berlin, partially for fun, but for the most
