A Year in Photographs
“The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you can see.”
| Winston Churchill
A strange year is coming to an end. A year in which we had to change our habits, our lifestyle. A time when everything that seemed safe and normal to us before was no longer a given. It demanded from us adaptability, patience, resilience, restraint and trust. Maybe it became clearer to us what really matters and what we are missing now – or what strengthens us from the inside and gives us stability.
Within this period I have always been wondering about the amount of negativity around us that acts as a big pressure, a burden upon all of us. At times it was even difficult to find single piece of positive news in different media channels.
Perhaps it is precisely in these times that art is gaining recognition again. Maybe it is the task of us artists to please people in these days, to make them dream, to remind them of past joys, to make them reflect, to give them questions or to be a house, a home, a security for them. This is what I try to give through my art and to please you who have kindly subscribed to my newsletter. To give a sign that someone is there.
Thank you for joining me on this exciting journey! It means a lot to me. May you all have a healthy, happy and joyful holiday period with some of your beloved ones and let’s all have an amazing start into a hopefully more stable year 2021. My wish for 2021 is that human values will be prioritized over economic objectives, that we gratefully live with what is given to us and are of service to others.
And here are some of my favorites of 2020.
