Mankind is vulnerability incarnate. One can easily wound this creature, severely if one wishes. This is frightening. What lies around the next corner? Today's online revolution makes this question even more loaded. A whole new world is at the disposal of people with an evil mind. At the same time kind-heartedness is being given wings like never before. For me as an artist vulnerability represents the ultimate goodness. My art, every single self-portrait, is a reconnoitering expedition to discover maximum delicacy carried by a human being. Every image is a step forward. Through my photography I rediscover faith in humanity.
My dad turns 90 today! Last week, I photographed the both of us. He knows I always add titles to my self-portraits. Viewing this photo, he said, "I have been thinking about a suitable title. How about: 'Still Life'?"
So "Still Life" it is. Thanks, dear dad. I love…
