"The best camera is the one you have with you." Eliott Erwitt

I always have my smartphone on me and it has a useful camera. I have taken photos of whatever has caught my eye - nothing planned or prearranged, just spontaneous shots - using image editing that is also on my smartphone rather than on my computer.

The result is a sequence over 1½ years that resembles a diary of photos. Unlike in my previous photography projects and books, photographic recording technology takes a back seat. Questions concerning the right aperture, exposure time and focal length do not arise. The foreground and background are approximately of the same sharpness. The small sensor always produces a large depth of field. For the image format, I have consistently chosen a square so that the format does not prescribe any graphic design.

The only thing that counts is the here and now. With instant photo editing on location, I have been able to express my mood in the photo and sometimes even exaggerate it.
