Capture the future

Capture with respect and for the future to come.

All photography is about having respect and understanding about what you are capturing. Always have in mind that a click is a frozen moment and statement which is a definition created by the person behind the camera and the object in front of the camera. This very moment will stand forever as a testimonial of a split of a second with a situation that will never occur again. With a simple click, we catch the past for the future. When I photograph, whether it is a person, a landscape or just a banal everyday situation I try my best to capture a glimpse for a testimony for our next generation. It is of course not all mine or yours or for that matter; Henri Cartier-Bresson, Annie Leibovitz, Robert Capa, Ansel Adams, Man Ray, Irving Penn, Tony Ray-Jones ( who sadly passed away way to early ) Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Jan Grarup, Steve McCurry, Richard Avedon, Andreas Gursky, Robert Mapplethorpe, Sebastião Salgado, Elliott Erwitt, Martin Parr, James Nachtwey, Don McCullin – and yes, I know the list is ( happily ) very long – who will define the past but together we are creating a historical visual Library. In a few words: Your next click may be the cornerstone that will define, improve or optimize a new generation and by that a new society.
