2017 I decided to do some more „fieldwork“. The walls of my atelier were closing in on me. I had put so many years and „Herzblut“ in my work, especially for the Roman Catholic Church, that I reached a point of deep exhaustion. A „break“ was inevitable…
I was craving the world outside; away from my seclusion. Since I do not wish to leave my base in Düsseldorf, I looked for an assignment or job that would allow me to travel more and to combine it with my work as an artist. I have found this possibility in my new work as a flight attendant and it teaches me more than I expected. Not only did I pick up my passion for photography again, I find many lessons and new experiences in what I do for a living these days. Things that would have been impossible to learn in the solitude of my atelier. My fieldwork looks more like working on fields made of clouds. I do find joy in a humble way; taking care of people and being responsible for their comfort and safety. But in a special way, I also learn to see through the eyes of heaven. Don´t get me wrong; „looking down“ on Earth has improved my perspective on -, and my empathy with, this planet and its creatures.
In the winters of 2015/2016/2017, I have also spent a lot of effort in writing about the St. Bruno Way of the Cross. Since people kept asking me for something to read about it, I started to make a document which eventually became a guide to understand the whole and details of this work. It is written in German and I will only deliver the „guide“ on demand.
