Well, this is it, our first collective post of 2024. This time, we could pick from all of last year, which kinda made things more difficult (which probably warrants an article of its own). Thank you again to all of those who participated. As for others, please let us know what you think, and do not hesitate to send in your January photos, when the call comes in a few days 🙂
My favorite photos are linked with memories or events. This photo of a shed in the Williamstown Hopkins forest was taken while my son and I spent a lovely weekend in the Berkshires.
Eastern Harbor in Addison Maine is a five minute walk from where my brother and his wife live; the photo was taken during our annual visit there this summer.
This was taken during a community day in Nubian Square, Boston, a short distance from where we live. The volunteers’ smiles reflect the positive spirit of the nonprofit More Than Words.
After years of struggling with the ability to produce occasionally striking, but ultimately quite empty images, 2023 was when the idea of producing more documentary photographs emerged. The concept of “Terroir photography” began to crystalize and, with it, the use of more colour. The three photos were chosen to illustrate that cohabitation of the two styles and – hopefully – their merging, one day 🙂
The picture from Hamburg was taken with my old Contax 167MT and the Carl Zeiss 1.4/50. The first analogue shots after more than 20 years of digital photography.
The picture of the Völklinger Hüttte (an old steel mill) was taken on the first trip with the Hasselblad 503CW. I had wanted to take a look at this industrial monument for a long time, and the Hassi finally gave me an opportunity.
Finally, the winter picture is one of the first shots taken with a Hasselblad SWC from 1967, which finally found its way to me. All pictures on Ilford XP2 super.
