  2. Yesterday I walked into a vintage store on Chatsworth Road and as always couldn’t walk by this box with old photos without sticking my hand in it. As some of you might know I’m obsessed with old photos: The idea that I give these memories that someone must’ve found worth capturing once, a new place to live on for another couple of years is just so very intriuging to me. I grabbed this small piece of black and white negative and instantly fell in love with the picture. Look how precious it is! The shop owner didn’t even know there were negatives laying around in the box as well and I could just have it. That’s a Sunday well spent I’d say.

  3. Carmen Knöbel for VOGUE Business Germany, October 2014.Outtake.Hair & Make-Up: Martin Heim.Assistant: Henning Ross.
When I started out as a photographer I wrote down three things I wanted to achieve until I would turn 30: - go and live in New York City for a while - be able to walk into a book store and buy a book where your name is printed on the cover - flip through an issue of VOGUE and see at least one picture you’ve taken printed
As it happens from this fall on I can cross off all these things even with two more years to go. Looks like I have to make a new list. – what’s on yours?

  4. London Diary.Lavender Grove. September 8th, 2014.
The weirdest thing about London is that it is calming me down. With its politeness and beauty, its misty mornings and its reasons to have me around.

A week ago this beautiful face showed up at my place to have some portraits taken. I finally managed to scan a few as I have set up a very first (and very temporary) homeoffice in London today. I’m still looking for a more permanent room in East London. Holler at me.

  12. Crown Heights. November 2010.It’s my fourth day of lying in bed trying to recover from sickness that – if I’d be really honest – I have been struggling with for the past couple of months.
And while I see the sun playing outside I dive into archives, tell myself wanderlust stories and think about bygone times. 
(Like the times when we photographed our daily life in New York City, where this picture is reblogged from.)
But enough of dwelling on what has been, let’s focus on what is going to come. And on that notice: I’m Syndikat Artists new girl.

  13. Grandfather, April 2014.
A couple of years back I had pretty much lost myself. I had lost the idea of who I am. I had lost the idea of who I’d become. And I had lost the idea of where I’m actually coming from. I went on doing things. Most of them I need people or photos to remind me of. I went on inhaling and exhaling. I went on for months and had made sure that in the end I would come back to an idea of myself. 
Today something happened that made my heart stop for a second. And that made me think back to these days when with shaking hands I was wandering through life not knowing the importance of, well, basically anything. But mostly the importance of companionship and trust.
I missed out on saying ‘I love you. And I trust you.’ way too much in these past years. I still do, sometimes, but I promise, I’ll be trying harder not to. And so should you. (And thank you, Granddad, for letting me take that picture of you earlier this year. For letting me capture a moment of ease and joy even though I know you disliked me for insisting. I love you.)
