photographs become pictures become drawings.

a couple of weeks ago i was visiting the exhibition “fotografien werden bilder. die becher-klasse” at the städel museum in frankfurt. the exhibition shows photos by the first (and by now famous and acclaimed) students of bernd and hiller becher. it is a brilliant exhibition that i can only recommend (still going until august, 13th 2017).

i took a closer look at the photos i liked most by sketching them:

Gekritzel9_nach tata ronkholz: st. franziskusstr. 107 (düsseldorf), 1977/78.

Gekritzel8_nach thomas ruff: interieur 1d, 1982.

Gekritzel5_nach jörg sasse: 28246, 2000.

Gekritzel3_knach andreas gursky: teneriffa, schwimmbad, 1987.

a nice guard at the exhibition was interested in what i was doing and asked me for a look at all of my drawings when i was done. he seemed to be impressed, but not so much by the drawings but by my cheap biro: “hm… it’s hard with that pen… you can’t erase and correct things…”

<3 my hood. <3 westhafen.

this week some photos instead of drawings. i took a walk in my hood one night last week, when snow and air were very nice and fresh.

check out beautiful westhafen at its best!

do you know this longterm building sight in moabit?

cudos to my little lumix (DMC-LX7), my camerade. she did all the work, to be honest.
