During a workshop in Marseille a short text from the book «L’Image fantôme» from Hervé Guibert was supposed to inspire me for a self-portraiture. Unfortunately my French was too weak to understand the meaning of the text. I gave up and went back to my room, where I began pondering. After some time I grasped my camera and started taking pictures. The project in Marseille became the turning point in my photography.

Marseille

Es war während eines Workshops in Marseille, Frankreich. Ein kurzer Text aus dem Buch «L‘Image fantôme» von Hervé Guibert sollte als Inspirationsquelle für ein Selbstporträt dienen. Da mein Französisch nicht gut genug war, kapitulierte ich vor dem Text und zog mich in mein Zimmer zurück. Dort grübelte ich eine Weile vor mich hin, bevor ich meine Kamera schnappte und mit dem Fotografieren begann. Die Arbeit in Marseilles wurde zu einem Wendepunkt in meinem fotografischen Arbeiten.
