Werewolf
birgit krippner
Mar 23, 2018
Without awareness, unconsciously I know when a full moon is approaching. Slowly I can feel how I am being transformed into a wolf. The last couple of days before fullness, sometimes I have the urge of locking myself away, until the full moon passes.

This unusual feeling and story will be part of a collaboration with a photographer friend of mine. Only a few days away before a full moon will be up high, this will be the beginning to this photo project, in the South Island of New Zealand.
