Special photography added.


As a part of the first major update on this webpage special photography has been added. The front page as well as the ›about me‹ sub page feature portraits taken by Astrid Susanna Schulz [GER]. The photos displayed are a result of a first meeting.

The picture above and the ones shown on the landing page are of analogue origin (Hasselblad 500 C) and developed on expired b/w Kodak Tri-X 400 film.
The portraits on the sub page were taken digitally with a vintage Minolta MD Rokkor lens.

Astrid Susanna Schulz‘ work can be accessed via her instagram too.

Many thanks to Astrid for the kind permission!
