As you can see the darkroom is working quite well, I'm looking forward to get the first pieces of the concept work "HEADS" ready until next week, I want to publish it first for the university "Die Angewandte".
Working in the darkroom is quite a lot of fun, but the paper has become very expensive in the last years, so it's nearly impossible to work more than for two or three series. Everything else would be ineconomic. So sorry!
But, not all hope is gone. Me and my studio friend Phil, are going to buy something for scanning our analogue material, so my little beloved hasselblad won't get to lonesome. :)
Not possible to see it fresher than this, straight out of the blue labor!
Last saturday I was visiting with some friends the exhibition "museum of wishes", that is currently in the mumok, and I saw this awesome artwork. I hope it inspires you as much as it impressed and inspired me.
This picture came into being during a photo shoot for my work "HEADS", and there are also some other which I will show you later.
I hope he is going to do some model work, I really like his faces.
When I asked my two models to simply stand and look each other (and they are friends since they were little), I found out that it was more hard work and confusing for people to ask them to do simply nothing, just standing there, the instead of doing some akrobatic work in front of my camera. I thought, what the hell is going on? I just was standing and looking at them while they got nearly crazy and very uncomfortable. Shortly before the situation would break, I finally gave the some little advices (but it was still simply standing and doing nothing, really nothing).
So, as this was the second time I was able to watch that strange thing, I came the decision, that for people it is harder to stand in front of one and another and look the other one straight into the eye, that doing some freaky model stuff. But what says that about human being?
