Once

Within every photograph, there is also the beginning of a story, starring “once upon a time…”

Every photograph is the first frame of a movie, often the next moment, the next release of the shutter a few steps further on, the subsequent image, that is, is already tracing this story’s progress in its very own space, and its very own time.

So over the years, at least to me, taking pictures has more and more turned into “tracing stories”; with every second picture the “montage” is already on the way, and the story that has announced itself in the first picture is now moving into its own direction

defining its sense of space

and portending its sense of time.

Sometimes new actors appear, sometimes the alleged lead proves to be just a supporting part

and sometimes no person at all is at the centre, but a landscape.
