Catch the moment
I see emotions on stage or in a landscape, and my photos transfer them to viewers. I catch the moment when the landscape opens itself to me making me a participant. All musicians’ portraits are done during live performances. They catch the moments when the individual discloses himself on stage, a person with his own thoughts and emotions. The portraits transmit moods, loneliness, even vulnerability. In both settings the viewer is invited to leave reality and move into the setting – and into his or her own inner associations. Taking photos of landscapes is not about “what might be of interest to the audience”. It’s more about “Which scenery catches my emotions?” – that’s the moment I want to capture. Most of all I try to catch the right moment. The moment that touches me and ultimately will touch the viewer.
