Your Delight and My Delight

Seit 2015 arbeite ich an der Serie "The Color Codes". Die Arbeiten zu dieser Serie entstehen in Phasen. Es kommen immer mal wieder Phasen, in denen die Motive für die Serie "zu mir kommen". Dann muss ich alles stehen und liegen lassen und dem Wunsch der Motive nachgeben und mich ausschließlich IHNEN widmen.

So war es auch mit diesen beiden Werken. "My Delight" und "Your Delight".  

Ich war auf dem Heimweg von einem Shoot. Die Kamera hatte ich bei mir und wollte einfach bei meinem "Blumenmann" noch ein paar Blumen kaufen. Als ich den Laden betrat war ich alleine und sah die Orchideen in der Ecke stehen. Magisch angezogen, musste ich mich ihnen sofort widmen, das heißt Fotos von Ihnen machen. Mein "Blumenmann" hat seinen Laden in einer Berlin U-Bahn-Station. Es ist also nicht besonders hell und das vorhandene Licht ist etwas fieses Kunstlicht. Das sind definitiv nicht die besten Voraussetzungen für Makroaufnahmen. Aber ich hatte ja mein "Besteck" dabei, war alleine im Laden und stellte daher kurz mein Stativ auf und machte mich ans Werk. Dabei vergaß ich komplett die Zeit und vor allem auch wo ich war. Jetzt muss ich dazu sagen dass ich bei diesem "Blumenmann" seit Jahren meine Blumen kaufe. Wir sprechen zwar nicht die selbe "Sprache-Sprache", aber wir sprechen die gleiche Sprache. So stand ich also gedankenverloren in seinem Laden und habe Aufnahmen von Orchideen gemacht - mit Stativ und Makro. Ich weiß nicht, wie lange das alles ging, aber irgendwann hatte ich meine Aufnahmen gemacht, war zufrieden und merkte vor allem wieder wo ich war. Vermutlich war ich schon lange nicht mehr alleine im Laden, denn als ich mich umdrehte, sah ich einen etwas verdutzten Blumenmann hinter der Theke stehen, der nicht so richtig wusste, was er jetzt damit anfangen soll, dass ich in seinen Laden komme und drauflos fotografiere. Ich habe dann einfach die Blumen gekauft, die ich kaufen wollte - über meine Fotosession haben wir nicht geredet. Wir sprechen ja nicht die selbe "Sprache-Sprache", hätte also eh' nichts gebracht darüber zu reden. Er war froh, dass ich noch Blumen gekauft habe und ich war froh, dass er mich nicht beim Fotografieren gestört hat. 

Die Aufnahmen sind zu meinen "All-Time-Favorite-Werken" der Serie geworden. "My Delight" und "Your Delight" jeweils 180 x 120 cm auf ChromaLuxe.

Since 2015 I am working on the series "The Color Codes". The work on this series is created in phases. There are always phases in which the motifs for the series "come to me". Then I have to stop everything and give in to the desire of the motives and devote myself exclusively to THEM.


So it was with these two works. "My Delight" and "Your Delight".
 

I was on my way home from a shoot. I had the camera with me and just wanted to buy a few flowers from my "flower man". When I entered the shop I was alone and saw the orchids standing in the corner. Magically attracted, I had to devote myself to them immediately, that is to take pictures of them. My "flower man" has his shop in a Berlin subway station. So it is not very bright and the existing light is a nasty artificial light. These are definitely not the best conditions for macro shots. But I had my "cutlery" with me, was alone in the shop and therefore set my tripod briefly and got to work. I completely forgot the time and especially where I was. I have to mention that I have been buying flowers from this "flower man" for years. We do not speak the same "language-language", but we speak the same language. So I stood lost in thought in his shop and took photos of the orchids - with tripod and macro. I do not know how long that went, but at some point I was done with the photos remembered where I was. Probably I have not been alone in the store for quite a while, because when I turned around, I saw a somewhat bemused flower man standing behind the counter, who did not really know what he should think about what he saw. Me entering his shop and taking photos of his orchids. So I just ingnored the situation and did what I originally came for - buying flowers. We did not talk about my photo session. He was glad that I had bought flowers and I was glad that he did not disturb me when taking pictures.
 

The photos I took at his shop have become my "All-Time-Favorite-Works" of the series. "My Delight" and "Your Delight" each 180 x 120 cm on ChromaLuxe.
