Interview with Limited Runs

"... I also believe that a landscape absorbs the history or the life of the people who live there. Like stories or tales that the landscapes seems to tell you. ..."

Photograph published in Romka 9 Magazine.

" My sister took this photo when we visited our grandparents in the Northern part of Germany. It is one of my favorites, because I feel like I can smell the food that my grandmother cooked. My sister documented “life in a foreign land”, and portrayed—among others—our grandparents, who live in a small village near Hanover. They were both fugitives in WWII and could not go back to their homes in Schlesien and Pommern after the war. They settled in this small village, Ilsede, and opened up a small grocery store. To this day, they still feel like “the fugitives” in this town. They managed to build their own Heimat in a place where they never fully felt welcome. And the old recipes—how can it be otherwise—are among the things that remind them of their home. "

Textures

End of March my husband and I went on a road trip to New Mexico. This was my first visit, and the highlight of this trip was definitely the White Sands Monument. I was fascinated by the texture of the sand and how imprints formed the desert landscape. I am still in the process of editing the photographs, but I’ll show some work in progress!

Auswandern (Immigrating)

This is a project I did a while back and something I really enjoyed. I have not done something like this since and I wanted to post it to remind myself to take these kinds of photographs again. Overlapping images are fun for me not only because it makes it more abstract and one has to look a little longer to figure out what it is, but they can tell several stories about different events.
