Bernadett Yedouh, Nicole Ilbertz, Horst Frommont, Jürgen Pösse are members of this group and together they followed my invitation, disregarding the costs and efforts it takes to travel to Mallorca and trust in me … they are no beginners, experienced in photo walks and some know each other personally. In theory I am the newcomer! But I proceeded as if I would go to the markets and buy the ingredients for a cooking class … only difference: other content & focus.This in advance: it was like fantastic! We shared a time together that was out of the ordinary … and lots and lots of fun, great pics and three long nights with great food, prepared by Frau Otten and me.Thats how to make real friends.
We talked a lot about photography and especially street photography but our conversations went far beyond that … we did not only take perfect pics during these days but also broadend our personal horizons: The results of each of us reflect exactly the personality of each of us. With some pics we took same motives … but each of them is different. Not only because of different equipment. The proceeding, the view … for sure the observer of the pic does not realise this but I learned that there is another dimension in these photos: it is the dimension of the photographer him/herself. His/her thoughts while taking the photo. His/her intention. And yet there is another parallel to real life: not to judge. Let things happen, receive people where they are, open up to others in pure confidence. For me it is a privilege to enter into the privacy zone of other people … this is a very precious moment.
The next street walk here on Mallorca is already in my mind …
my heart already beating!
