Started sorting out the pictures from the Frankfurt-Workshop with Jane Evelyn Atwood. “Storytelling with Pictures” is quite a premise – after telling stories about pursuing her Women in Prison-project for more than 10 years, she sent us out on the street to find an tell our own story in less than 4 hours…

You have to admire the dedication and lots of the pictures&the stories she told about them were breathtaking… –

On saturday, I was pretty annoyed with the digital pictures: I’m still having issues focusing with the 28mm, and I found it hard to focus on one story instead, there was probably too many random drifting… Yet I loved to be out on the streets again and in something that at least remotely qualifies as a city.
