My latest exhibition is now open in Coesfeld, Germany

Some time ago I was offered an exhibition at the ‚ZfO-Zentrum fuer Osteopathie‘ (Centre for Osteopathy) in Coesfeld, Germany.

This exhibition is now open and will be seen by the many clients and patients that go there on a weekly basis.

The central theme of the exhibition is ‚Lebensfreude‘, the German word for ‚love of life‘.

Most of the images are of people, photographed in various situations in Germany and New Zealand.

Currently there are 6 images, with further images in post-production.

The exhibition will become permanent as 4 of the first 6 images have already been sold – plus one gifted – to the centre.

Here are the first 6 images of the series:

Personal Project 3 – Germany

After a seemingly short summer Autumn has arrived in Germany.

With it came a distinct change in the light.

The sun is lower, shadows longer, and there is often fog in the air and on the ground.

To that is added the slightly warmer colour of the light and together the mix creates a distinct atmosphere and softness.

The fog and haze also create beautiful streaks of light when photographing straight into the sun.

It’s often a case of picking the right lens for this kind of light, but luckily I own one lens which just seems to love these atmospheric conditions.

It’s difficult to actually say which time of year I prefer for my photography.

Autumn though is one of the best times to be out and roaming the landscapes with my camera.
