“an image a day keeps the doctor away” was the title of my first photoblog somewhen around 2001/2002. I’m trying do do something like this on tumblr now. Enjoy.

Silke Schwarz at Fenster61

Personal space is like a protective shield that allows people to explore and express their personalities. People must be able to individualize spaces to make them their own. “17 m2 – Waiting for Home” is a series of permanent records of the temporary, of what is probably the highest possible degree of individualization within standardized and homogenized spaces. These works depict provisional arrangements in homes for asylum seekers, arrangements that for many of these people continue to be provisional and temporary for several months, and for most of them for years. Personal effects, photographs and other items provide glimpses into the countries of origin and the cultures of those living in these homes and inject some individuality into these otherwise stark and sterile spaces.

A Café Restaurant Exhibition

Manzini, Berlin

The Café Restaurant Manzini at Luwigkirchstraße 11 in Berlin Wilmersdorf is a nice place for decent coffee and fine dining. Now it is even a little bit nicer because they have some of my photographs on the wall. Thanks to Manfred Carpentier from Carpentier Galerie for arranging this!
