Beauty in Life and Death

Tak­ing off with my lit­tle Olym­pus cam­era, not know­ing what I’m look­ing for and what I will expe­ri­ence, is one of my favorite explo­rations.
This time, I climbed up the hill behind the house, where spring was throb­bing in full force besides all the reminds of fall. Con­tinue reading

“Grand Canyon Light Show” in Time Magazine">Grand Canyon Light Show” in Time Magazine

Time Magazine Dec 30 2013I’m very happy to announce that the “Grand Canyon Light Show” was fea­tured in the Decem­ber 30. 2013 edi­tion in the Time magazine.

Two weeks ago, I was con­tacted by Phil Bicker and Bryan Walsh from Time mag­a­zine to write a short state­ment about my photo. I wrote a lit­tle text, and was sur­prised to see it fea­tured as a dou­ble spread!

Every­thing about these pic­tures was a sur­prise.
It was lit­er­ally hit­ting me like light­ning,
show­ing me that moments of sig­nif­i­cance can­not be planned or forseen.
They can only be received.
