2015 started busy and emotional. Knowing that my Mum would get retired soon, leaving her medical pratice behind, starting a new, not known chapter of her life, scared me somehow. It left me sleepless at night, got me teared up countless times and made me eat chocolate instead of having a proper breakfast. My Mum stopping to work meant, that I would lose my job, too – as we were working together for the last three years. Fulltime. Hand in hand. Side by side. Something I´ve never imagined would work. But it did.
With these ambivalent feelings – being happy for my Mum, feeling pity for myself – I needed a break. A little downtime. The Eastern Sea is a perfect place to clear you mind. To breathe. Relax. Calm down. In wintertime even more than in Summer. I love the salty mist, which covers you all over, and the tousled hair after a long walk at the beach. And when you´re chilled to the bone, a hot fish soup and a glass of ginger liqueur will help. Not only against the cold, but to let your soul rest.
And because calming down is much easier while shooting analog, I took some Images on film. With a film that was almost 10 years expired. Not perfect, but nice.
