I work as a photographer in Berlin, and I am always thrilled when I get feedback like this:
“Wow I loved the photos I am speechless! It is magical to be able to see myself in such a poetic way. I regained the self-esteem that I had long forgotten. A lot of gratitude for giving me such beautiful moments! A big hug and I hope to see you soon.
“I just wanted to thank you for the care, patience and love you had in taking each picture today. It was an incredible morning, I was so discouraged these days and this essay cheered me up so much, I got home super excited. Congratulations for your work.
This shows the power of photography. For me as a photographer, it is wonderful to witness this. This is one of the reasons why I love photography.
Photography is poetry in the form of images.
To photograph is to freeze the moment, is to lock an instant, is to hold on to time, is to make everything important, every detail is shown, every colour is revealed, nothing is missed, nothing is irrelevant.
