Tone on tone

Again, it is fascinating to see these colours blending in with each other in every situation. More than once Cuba looks like a giant paintbox with only matching colours in it.

The sound of the streets

Unfortunately it’s not possible to submit the sound that belongs to this daily life in the long and narrow streets of Havana Vieja. Kids giggling, the clatter of old motorbikes, the signaling of the bicycle-taxis, and the promoting of the same, and so on.

Che, or: the good die young. You can’t tell if people really adore him or if he and his actions are just glorified. In the end, it doesn’t change the fact that you will find a picture of Che at almost every location allover the country.

Different types of waiting

These guys were not waiting for the bus, just hanging around – most likely waiting for time to pass by.

Life in a display window #4

Ok, this shop offers a lot. Especially when taking into account that only few people in Cuba do own a CD-player. Person in the left corner is real, although it looks like a display mannequin.

Life in a display window #3

Watching people watching life happening around them is so much fun.

Life in a display window #2

This time you can take the title literally. These waitresses were sitting in the fast-food restaurant waiting for customers to come to whom they can sell nothing at all. As I mentioned earlier, the display windows do look a little drab sometimes.

Life in a display window #1

Some scenes are just looking like being arranged in a display window. Especially in Cuba these windows often are empty and a bit drab. [Havana, 2018]

After the work is done

I am so unbelievable happy!! Some of my work will be exhibited by Galerie Schürmann from 3rd Mach on. This is very special. Not only since I will be given this opportunity but also because the venue is only three houses away from the house where I grew up. So – in a way – I will return home. You can find more information here. Hope to see you there…

The legend has it that these painted eyes protect your boat from monsters or evil spirits.

Inle Lake

Already quite touristic at that time, the lake and the surrounding landscape is impressive anyways. Though without the acrobatic fisherman

Parallel lines

Photographers heaven. Everywhere these parallel lines…
