Why do I only work in Black and White? A question I hear from time to time from others.. sometimes ask this myself as well. For me it is about reducing the image to the message it carries.. it “tells” a better story, I think. Leaving out the colors let me focus on the subject more deeply.
My camera delivers the images in color, sometimes it hurts a bit to convert it to Black and White… sometimes I say to myself I know how to make a decent monochrome image… sometimes I think to try color and show it here. Let me think more deeply about this, maybe someday I will change my style.
In some parts of Cambodia parents build little huts for their children. The boys get slightly larger ones… What is happening there?
The teenagers can get visitors, a boy or a girlfriend… just the opposite of arranged marriage.
Nothing stays like it is, the world is developing and those traditions are disappearing. Romantic moments in the evening around a motorbike of the bigger ones in the spare light of a diesel generator seem to be the next future… anyway, it is a life without Facebook and other Internet platforms.
