Maria Giambona (a former ballet dancer of the Berliner Staatsoper) invited me to Isabel Vollrath´s show at the Fashion Week Berlin 2017 and I took some snapshots of Isabel´s work. I kind of felt like a stranger among the other people who came to see the show and in the end that is what I was. And I felt stuck among the other photographers during the show – not able to move and to change my point of view. I had to think of Helmut Newton who left the studio for outdoor location
I drove back from Madrid to Hamburg and went along the cost line of France. I took my time (four days) and ate oysters every day at a different place. The absolute highlight was standing at Omaha beach and sensing the allied invasion during the second world war. I was more or less the only person that day (it was freazing cold) and was hard to imagine, how many people left their lives on that beach fifty years ago.
