Wow, thanks a lot, Tom! The feature caught me by surprise I must admit (in a positive sense of course :) ). I haven't been very active lately (shame on me) and hope that I'll have more time again to spend on Shadowness in the near future. Thanks for your support and again for the great feature. I really appreciate it! :Dec 9th, 2012
The Taoistic philosopher Zhuang-Zi once expressed his attitude towards life: "Leap into the boundless and make it your home!" I totally agree and thus chose it as my guiding principle!
Now, Henry Cartier-Bresson aptly provides a link between this Taoistic principle and photography: "Taking photographs (...) is a way of shouting, or freeing oneself, not of proving or asserting one's own originality. It is a way of life."
So, in short, I take pictures because I love to and I love to take pictures because they are manifestations of a particular simple and sensitive attitude towards life.
I hope you enjoy my photographs as much as I enjoy taking them.
I'd be glad if you leave a comment to tell me what you think about my work or just to chat a bit. Have a good time!
