Reflective / Book (2015-2020)
The book shows a photographic journey to a visual ideal - here embodied exemplarily by the old, bearded sailor. After a long search, I found him on a remote island in the Archipelago Sea of Finland. In a personal letter, however, I tell his true story - which will not be revealed at this point. The booklet "Photojournalism in 24 Easy Steps" is included for your reference.
