“LIFE IS NOT WHAT ONE LIVED, BUT WHAT ONE REMEMBERS
AND HOW ONE REMEMBERS IT IN ORDER TO RECOUNT IT.”
(Gabriel García Márquez)
Life is colorful in every single sense. I love the idea of revisiting a moment that has already past, one that was so special to me that I want to live it again. Whether its returning to places I have already seen, smelling scents that recall a special situation or place, or hearing the music which reminds me of dear friends and family, these memories make me so happy and able to keep this moment alive in my mind.
Taking photos is my passion, it helps me to remember everything and to keep all these awesome pictures in my head.
They are colorful and show different situations of my life. Different places, different themes, different people, different cultures… absolutely colorao.
Everything has to change constantly. That might be the reason that I can’t stay in one place for too long. Maybe that’s also the reason why I often wish to return to a moment that has already past. Looking back at these moments they seem more intense and important. When I look at old photos, they seem magical to me.
I’m German and Cuban, but my heart feels only one. Cuba is a very magical and important place to me. When I am there I feel more like myself than anywhere else. The country attracts and enchants me with its people, its history, its music… and here I learned to see how colorful life is.
