M & M

Just a short walk from my home, there is this beautiful place I don’t go to often enough.

Goldene Heimat – Short Film

“Goldene Heimat” is a short film, a friends project and she asked me to be a part of it. I took a bunch of photos on set and helped out enough to get credit as “second assistant audio”, while having a whole lot of fun.

diary: 2018

Impressions from a hot summer in Chicago, 2018. Here in Austria it’s already spring by now, the sun is out bringing back smiles and memories and there are still a couple of photos from last year I want to show. Last year… it has been quite turbulent, lots of traveling and unexpected changes in my life, overall it got a lot better though. I was able to spend much needed time with people I love, made some new friends and went on quite some adventures. The majority of these photos were taken in Chicago,  where I feel effortlessly at home, one at Audiofeed (in Champaign-Urbana, IL). Some I took in Graz, Linz, Bad Leonfelden and in some woods on the countryside in Austria, some in Augsburg (Germany) and a couple in Venice (Italy). Looking through those brings back memories that you might not know of, but I still hope there’s at least one photo that makes you feel something.

Before sunset Two things that finally happened in my last couple of days in Austria: 1. My beautiful friend Ligia visited and we took photos. 2. My sister Rosa & I found the time for a project long due.

leaving Austria

leaving Austria I think the word I use most in this little blogpost texts is busy and the phrase you read most often is “sorry I didn’t post anything for a while”. Not that I’m ever really sorry, not lately, I live any enjoy my life to the fullest and yes, capturing and sharing moments with you is a great part of that but sometimes just experiencing things and making memories is more important. I am leaving tomorrow, once again, for Chicago. Planning on staying there a whole year, mixed feelings, of course, but excitement is the one I choose. The next weeks are gonna be exhausting in a good way and oh there are so many plans made and to be made… These photos are from a summer in Austria. A special post with impressions and artsy portraits from our family vacation in Croatioa is coming soon. Then it’s all Chicago (or the USA, let’s see how much I get to travel)… Merken Merken
