Nothing can be done all alone
Mostly all of our devellopements, as a person, as artists, are created through encounters.
Whom we meet, does shape our awareness, our works, our character.
I am therefore grateful for whom I met on may way through creating this homepage:
We met in Sweden, in the middle of the forests. Yannick and Susanne were reporting for Urnatur, me working on the Komorebi project.
Thanks to this encounter, the homepage shows such beautiful photographies. Mostly all Komorebi pictures are taken by these 2 creative souls from Berlin and are under their copyright.
Both keep influencing me with their stunning colors and themes.
To share some of the summerdays of Ulrika and Hakan, the founders of Urnatur, most magical place on earth in the middle of Sweden, had a huge impact on my life. Their rhythm in accordance with nature impressed me so much.
See the pictures of the Komorebi project in my portfolio and enjoy the light and the atmosphere of the place, which made this project possible.
My longest connection with the writing world is with Ulmer Publishing in Stuttgart, Germany. Writing my first reports about Japan under Magda Storz, I am now happily contributing and exchanging with Edith Strupf, chied editor of "florieren!".
Writing is my second key to the world, I enjoy the flow of words as much as I enjoy the flow of flowers and colors. Design is design is design.
Kiyokazu Nakajima I met many years ago, when we started to produce the "European Flower Design Text" series in Japan. Since then, he is the man behind most of my photographies. And not only behind! He is the only cameraman I know with a flower designer's hand. He can rearrange floral works with a safe and stable viewpoint and technique!
If I should find a word to describe Rebecca aka Chien Ming-Hui Chien, or 簡明惠, then it would be INTEREST. I can find her out immediately because she has that aura around her. Listening, seeing, understanding, transferring, these are her specialities as a teacher, lecturer and reporter in Taiwan. The pictures with the many light inside are hers!
