last sunday the shared car started to burn on my way from berlin to bremen. it was tanked with gas & filled with 3 football fans. as i got out the whole speedway was quickly covered with rusty chemical smoke. the fire dept. came after 15min, as 1/2 of the car was already burned down. all our backpacks & clothes smelled like chemical plastic smoke. the tow-truck driver took me to the next small town, from where i had to walk about 2 hours to the trainstation. verden is everything but a beautiful town. another thing to add to the list of very unique things that actually happend.
monday will be kiosk-monday from now on. let's start with rebecca cairns self-published photography book “ghost”. it has 40 pages & contains a selection of 27 photographs. her noir and mostly double exposured self-portraits are not only very intimate & well composed, they also express a transparency that makes you feel feer & a comfortable nearness at the same time. you can read a review from eric miller here. though it's printed on demand via blurb, it's quite expensive, but still very worth having in the shelf to take a closer look on her amazing work printed on paper. for recent updates you can take a look at her blog “portrait d'une femme”.
the other day in berlin we had a blogger brunch (someone came up with that name while planning). tasty pancakes, icecreamed coffee & conversations like everybody was friends with everyone for a long time, even some of us just met. thanks evelyn, geneviéve, johanna & anna-lisa. repeat please.
