Morning Coffee Talk~ 30/375

Expo2020 Dubai

Good Morning,

Being here in Dubai feels like travel to a parallel world in so many ways. In the last few days I have gone from winter to summer, from rain to sun, from indoors to almost all outdoors living, from a covid focused reality to a world of control over covid existence.

The world expo is buzzing with people from all over the world and the organization seems impeccable.

The place is a playground for street photography and I can’t wait to see what my camera manages to do by the end of the day.

I wonder what international gathering of this kind and the bringing together of global innovation and arts into one place causes each time a world expo takes place.

Back to exploring…

Photography Projects in Lockdown~ Hope

Two months ago, lockdown began as a precaution for the Covid-19 pandemic in Germany. I had to find a creative way to change the way that my busy and very active photography meetup group of over 2000 members meets and keeps on finding inspiration.

So the photographing a concept came to life. The first idea was to invite everyone to try and photograph ‘hope’. The results (photographs and words to go with them were sent to me and we had a short zoom meeting afterwards to reflect on the process and share the work). I had no idea what would happen. To my surprise the process caught on immediately and attracted people from outside the group who saw the posting on facebook. The results were so inspiring to me and the process has kept us all busy week after week (we are up to project 5 by now). I will be sharing the presentations from each of these here starting with ‘hope’.
