I just noticed I didn’t blog about my own photography yet. My favourite „topic“ in photography is light, creating a magical atmosphere using light and shadows. I love the shapes that are made by different shadows in the afternoon, I love reflections in windows at night and silhouettes against a light background. All photos were taken by me between 2008 and 2010. I paused my photography for lack of inspiration, money (analogue photography is just too expensive) and because I didn’t want to take my SLR to Peru. But I want to start again. Finding magical moments and fixing them onto negatives or paper is a wonderful hobby, and I’m proud of my photos.
To this post, I was kind of inspired by Miss Peppermint. In my interview with her, I asked her what kind of topics she would like to read more about in other blogs. She answered that she is interested in what other people are „fighting for“, what kind of topics move them. I have a lot of topics that matter to me, but returning from Peru and having attended a lot of seminars about racism that really made me re-think my education and thought patterns, one of the topics I want to fight for is how we, Europeans and North Americans, better known as „the West“ are seeing „the rest“, or correctly said, countries of the Global South.
This blog entry isn’t meant like a accusation. It’s only supposed to give everyone who never had contact to the topic of racism something to think about. Weiterlesen
