  1. A compelling sense of the poetry that can be found in mid-day places, especially in #’s 1 and 5 down from top. Your
    photographic aesthetic very much linked here to great photographs from 40 years ago: Meyerowitz, Shore, Friedlander et al…

      • Great question, and one which I’m thinking about all the time. Perhaps one thing that most photographers share is the fact that we’re no longer on uncharted territory. Our images are committed to various aesthetic approaches that were developed by others. Even “kitsch-avoidance” has its own tradition– Atget’s images suggest he was doing this, and Evans explored it fully. To some extent, Frank and his disciples created a body of work around this concept.

        Clearly we’re all saturated with images and aesthetics. There is very little that cannot be accused of cliche. The current challenge is in synthesis – bringing together approaches that haven’t been connected very often….and also in finding new ways to display one’s work, and to connect groups of images.

        You’ve demonstrated this quite nicely with your blog.

        • I very much agree, John. Synthesis “in finding new ways to display one’s work, and to connect groups of images” seams to be the way to go. And the more intense the way is you took before by getting experiences, looking at the work of others and listening to them, doing what ever you like to do, being let by feelings and imaginations, trying to match the technical challenge, the more intense this way is, the less close you are to produce cliches. It’s no rule, it’s just an idea. I try to explain to myself the differences between tense pictures and boring ones … and I took and take lot’s of boring pictures … not to be shown here of course ;-)

  2. I had to look up the meaning of Spaziergan….you work well with the flat, ordinary-life look, still injecting a little mystery into the scene. Ordinary, but maybe not. I know it’s much harder to do than it looks.

  3. Der Spaziergang hat sich ja gelohnt. Wunderbare leuchtende Farben, da kann der Bremer noch nicht mithalten :-D
    Die beiden Fotos mit den komischen Rohren gefallen mir gut, sind meine Favoriten, ich mag sowas absurd Anmutendes. Auch die rote Brücke ist ein Hingucker. Die Kirschblüte ist herrlich, was für ein schöner Baum… und später erst die Früchte!!!
    Die Perspektive über den Zaun vor den Parzellen ist sehr gut gewählt, mit dem Hochhaus im Hintergrund, ebenso der Blick entlang der Hecke. Gut, daß du in dieser Serie wieder auf Farbe gesetzt hast. Das Grün leuchtet!
    Schönes Wochenende wünscht dir

    • Es musste Farbe sein. Schon des Lichtes wegen. Die Rohre gehören zu Fernwärmeleitungen, die es hier in Leipzig überall noch gibt. Sie wirken wirklich etwas komisch. Regelrecht schön sind sie nicht. Aber darum ging es hier ja auch nicht. Guten Start in die neue Woche wünscht KUM
