And you go down to moulder in dark places, beneath the grass and clover

Vienna Central Cemetery Holga 120

Back in April I spent a weekend in Vienna, visiting concerts and ticking off a thing that was on my bucket list for a very long time: roaming the Vienna Central Cemetery. Despite the fact that I lived in Vienna for 8 years, I never made it to this graveyard. Two things I learned during this stay in Vienna: Going to a festival all by myself is weird at the beginning but totally okay, and the second thing: Not visiting this cemetery while I had the chance for 8 f*cking years was a big mistake. But since I don’t dwell on the past, I’m looking forward to more visits in the future.

12 cameras: My photography project for 2017

12 months 12 cameras project

With the beginning of a new year I usually don’t make resolutions for the next 365 days. To me that doesn’t make sense. But there is one thing I always do and that’s making plans and thinking about projects and new ideas. A few things crossed my mind but finally I sorted out which project I want to realize in 2017.

Darkroom Tunes Vol I: The Sound of Winter

Darkroom Tunes

Music is a very important part of my life and not a day goes by that I don’t listen to a whole album, several albums or at least some songs: In the office, on my way to work, at home, while cooking – there’s even music when I take a nap. And of course – you guessed it – I always pick some tunes when I’m developing films, scanning negatives or working on a photography project indoor. Here’s my choice of music for winter – most of this stuff is on heavy rotation for weeks now.

Slowing down: Winter days

Holga Kodak T-Max 400

Autumn is finally gone and days are getting shorter and darker. Everything slows down – including me, who seems to be the only person who enjoys dark days and the crisp air on a foggy morning. I even walk to work and back home more often than I do when days are warm and sunny. There are a few things I always do when winter arrives, using my Holga camera is one of them. This winter I decided to slow down in my kitchen lab as well: Hej stand development!

Autumn with a new companion: Nikon F80

Time passed quickly the last few weeks and I just realized that the best part of autumn is almost over. With fall as the most stressful time of the year I hardly ever carry out my projects and plans for this season. Every year, when September approaches, I make plans and a photography bucket list: a weekend in Prague, a getaway to the countryside, more hiking, more walking. A lot of events and a lingering cold did the rest – here I am, at the end of October, with my bucket list still filled. At least I made it to Barcelona!

From the archives: A foretaste of fall

Hello fall! Leaves have not changed their color yet but in the morning, the air is already crisp and on weekends I find myself baking apple pie. A sure sign that fall will be in full swing soon. In a few weeks I’ll be out in the woods again, packed with cameras and film. Until it’s time for that, I digged into my archive and found some photos from the last two years.
