I Was Black-Haired Once


Zooming Between Göteborg And Berlin

Hej hej, this was my first zoom workshop!!! 7 women artists in Göteborg at beloved Konstepidemin – a cool art space with lots of good things happening!

Konstepidemin är ett ateljéområde vid Linnéplatsen i Göteborg som utgör en unik arbetsplats för 130 konstnärer från en bredd av konstområden, en plattform för konstnärliga projekt samt en mötesplats för konstnärer och publik.

(Remember? I was there the first time this year in March, having a filmshow, meeting Maria and Fredrik and Johanna (for the first time, the latter. She organized this workshop now!!).
What can you expect from me? All eco of course – we called this workshop “Ecoberry Film Soups” and I tried to beam my enthusiasm and knowledge and recipes up North while they developed their black&white super 8 films that they shot shortly before in: coffee, tree bark tea, beetroot juice and curcuma soup!!!
We are going to digitize all films later, they will edit them this winter and then next year in January they are going to be exhibited in Göteborg at some gallery. More infos later!!!


My Street

Another Illy camera pinhole photo … my street, autumn mood.


Hello Autumn!

Colored leaves inside and outside


Dalai 13

I think about it again and again … why the Dalai Lama actually never reincarnated as a girl! Never before!
Reincarnated 13 times, always as a boy.
But that will change too!
Thinking about a film … about words and coincidences and double exposures!


Max Is Cool

Isn’t it amazing what a small flat simple peppermint tin box can create?
I just put a piece of paper in, stuck the box to my tripod, placed it in front of my window and opened the lid (the one on the little hole) to expose it about 20 minutes to the dim afternoon sunlight that fell in.
Then later developed it in coffee, scanned and inverted it … et voilà!!


Where The Magic Happens

Come into my darkroom!!! This is where the magic happens … where I stir yummy soups and make pictures come true!!

This is a pinhole photo made with my good old Illy coffee camera, see below!!! Exposure time: 30 minutes!!


Banana, Beer, Cigarette, Noodle

… that’s all you need and all you get today!

A Spoonful Of Help

Hey, this is for all analog eco film and photo developers who love caffenol!
If you ever lose your scales, there is help on it’s way, a little unprecise though but quite useful!
You just need two different sized spoons: Teelöffel und Esslöffel / tea spoon and table spoon. Forget about dessert spoon or serving spoon, no need for these. You don’t have them anyway.
And if in the end you have 23 instead of 27 or 11 instead of 8 grams? It doesn’t matter that much: caffenol is forgiving!


Playing With Anthotypes

I’m harvesting the latest anthotypes. The sun is getting weaker and steeper day by day, the antho season will soon be over.
One is a photogram: I placed Ritterporn / Delphinium (what a beautiful name!!) leaves on a spinach juice brushed paper.
The other one is a photo negative on red cabbage. Red cabbage makes a blue colour. It changed weirdly while bleaching over several weeks …
Just for fun I inverted them (photoshoply) to see how the opposite colour would be … and a mighty Wow! escaped my grinning mouth! 😀


Photo Shnipsel

What is a Schnipsel? Something abgeschnipselt … some cut off, some snip snap snup snippet!

I do the Schnipsel when I cut photo paper to the size I need and then the snippet remains. Lingers there … and drops of developer, of caffenol, of fixer, of eco soup drip drop on it. Make patterns and pictures. I could use them as analog bookmarks!
Wanna have one?


The Goldmarie Sunflower Field

This summer the Goldmarie (favourite bar / café of mine) and neighbours have sown a wildflower lawn! All summer long it was buzzing with bees and butterflies, blooming in all colours. Now it’s sunflower time.
I took a pinhole photo with my 3 favourite supersmall cameras. One turned out ok!

(Fuji, 200 ASA, exposure time 1/2 second, developed in C41)


Anthotypes On Giebichstein

What is a Giebichstein??
It’s an art school in Halle at river Saale in middle-east Germany.
I was invited there to give a short anthotypes workshop! Big room, not too many students not too close, all careful and … once I spread my enthusiasm: infected!!! By my enthusiasm ;-), by love for colours, for nature, veggie, flowers, experiments, squeezing vegetables, painting wildly … it was pure fun and inspiration!!


Funny Lamps In Friesennerz

One sleeping, one drunk. Both in Friesennerz!! Ostfriesen mink! Classical yellow raincoat! Oilskin jacket!


Street House Tree

Walking through my Berlin streets looking up into the sky I see this!

(Pinhole photo taken with my Illy coffee cam and a piece of film (FOMA negative, 100 ASA) inside, exposure about 2 seconds)


Anthotypes Ripening

My last anthos enjoy their sunbath. Mid September – hot!!!


Good Bye For This Season, Dear Prinzenbad!

See you again next summer …

(I put my Illy pinhole camera at the pool and took a photo – not yet scanned, come back later!!) …

And here comes a little film:


Private Little Pinhole Workshop

I gave a one day pinhole workshop for 2 friends in my own working space! Thinking about to offer it as a special event: small group, my private space including small darkroom, medium expensive 😉
It was fun! We tinkered 4 cool can cameras: 2 Illy coffee, one large and one flat cookie box!!

Beautiful Pinhole Photo Mistakes


Nom Nom Jam

Somehow I like these little nervous creatures!


Around The Kotti

Strolling through my streets with my Illy pinhole cam in my pocket, finding unspectacular corners that I love for some undefined reason 😉



Ich hab ein kleines Handyfilmchen gedreht und lach mich scheckig über einen ruralen Dichter. Bzw über sein blödes Gedicht, das ich auf einer Gedenktafel an einer Bank irgendwo auf dem Land gefunden hab. Glatte Selbstüberschätzung, männliche, dachte ich. Aber ist das nicht gemein? Ja. Irgendwie schon. Der gute Mann meckert nicht, jammert nicht, er liebt seine Umgebung und ihm flattert Lyrik in den Kopf, vielleicht sollte man sich einfach mal freuen, dass er nicht Bauer Erwin erschlägt oder seine Frau verprügelt, sondern zarte Reime in die Welt ballert!

Zum Film


Bank / Bench Error

New super 8 film online!!!

“Benches and what they see”
(in German banks and benches are called the same: „bank“. Bankirrtum would translate as bank error / bench error.)

Click here!


2 Swans

2 new anthotypes. The blue swan: red cabbage juice. The almost invisible green swan: stinging nettle juice. Both about 3 weeks exposure in the sun. Red cabbage bleaches out, nettle changes its green. Interesting!!!!


Ode An Juni / Ode To June 2020

The new June film is ready! Completely super 8! 25 colourful minutes!!!!

Watch it on Youtube!


Good Night Sheep

Somebody please adopt this sheep!!


Prinzenbad Happiness

Happiness is a warm coffee and a Körnerbrötchen at my beloved Prinzenbad! Due to Corona we have to order time slots online which makes the crowd smaller … it is pure joy to swim in a so much emptier pool now and no more kiddies jumping in my face from the sides …


Matcha And 3 Leaves

Matcha goo on paper darkens after 2 months in the sun! And where’s the green? This is my weirdest, softest anthotype.


A Bear! A Bear!
