A few weeks ago my phone rang and Gerd René Neipp was at the other end looking for natural and authentic pictures – wonderful. An exciting person who has already sailed through all possible ups and downs and from whom you can learn a lot. A burnout a few years ago led him to question his activities a bit more closely and to find efficient ways to change his life in such a way that the joie de vivre now takes centre stage. A great thought and my respect for his courage to change his life fundamentally and to go his own way. And since he doesn’t want to keep it all to himself, he offers to pass on his knowledge and various tools. I find it – you never stop learning – and behind the next bend wait again and again for new answers and the associated new questions. And one learns and grows and lives… the art is now to enjoy the way without losing sight of the goal and to be open for creative detours – because..: Detours increase the knowledge of the place.
We have photographers together in the evening in the beautiful Wollmatinger Ried, which is just in its autumn splendour.
Gerd had the idea to describe my photography and me with the slogan: “touch with your eyes”. Beautiful. Thank you Gerd.
