Hamburg is mostly known for it’s active nightlife with St. Pauli and the Reeperbahn area where most young people spend their nights in clubs or bars.
But this area is aslo famous for it’s redlight district, which is not only active at night.
Anyways, during my one-day- trip with my Dad I decided to show him one of Germany’s most famous streets and I obviously had to take some pictures of my dad infront of all these “amusement shops” the Reeperbahn has to offer.
Since the first girls talk ( that officially got renamed to Habibis’ Talk) session has been over a month ago, we decided it’s soon time for the next one to happen.
So what is this all about?
Well, me and my friend G-laaf were actually looking for a chill group of girls to shoot with and then this whole thing turned into one “big” meeting of girls that just sit there talk, eat and take some pictures. We’re not “just talking”, we want to establish these meet-ups/talk sessions into something everyone is welcome to and can contribute to in every way. There are lots of topics that need to be talked about more often, topics that not only affect the society in general but specifically women and younger girls. We have taken it as our duty to talk about it and give everyone the opportunity to contribute to it.
In the end it’s all about us forming one big community in which every individual feels being listened to and maybe also like changing something.
This project is still at it’s very beginning and there are already a few things planned for the future, so don’t fear to be part of it.
Since I can’t really decide on how to start this post off right this time I’ll just skip the part where I talk about irrelevant things and stuff . ( 10/10 on actually writing blog posts and maintaining a blog)
All the following photos were taken on an (obviously) B&W film on my canon analog baby. And these pictures were also taken this summer were I used to spend a lot of time with these people and just chill and take pictures of them. And let me tell you that taking pictures of the people you just hang out with is great, there is no such thing as an awkward silence or an awkward atmosphere. ( These people really helped me out a lot with finishing my portfolio and at this point I just want to say thank you )
So wassup? I think it’s been a month since the last post, but I don’t even want to apologize. I obviously had some shit to do. For example writing this damn 20 page paper about psychotherapy and how it affects your brain. But since I’m done with it, the following image I recently found on tumblr describes my mood towards life now pretty much.
Like I already said I was shooting film this whole summer, and I even got two b&w films from my friend Davida (thank you) and did not miss the opportunity trying them (and I never say no when people tryna GIVE me film rolls bc shit is expensive as fuck).
This pretty boy is named Marco and is one of the cutest and kindest people I got to know. Really had fun shooting this beaut.
This was all I had to say. Thank you for reading and supporting.
Have a good evening.
No this is not a face tat, I just drew these tear drops on his face with a normal eyeliner pen.
He actually doesn’t even smoke but he did it for the pictures.
I don’t even know what happened here lol, I guess I fucked up the film.
So I thought of starting an archive series on my blog. Because I never happened to post them but I did’nt want all these hours of scanning pictures go to waste. So why not bring a bit nostalgic vibes on my blog ?
This is Daniela.
One day I was out with my sister and we saw her and I was like “Damn this girl is pretty and a perfect photo model *insert crying emoji* .” ( I was not literally crying but I felt like this emoji was impersonating me perfectly in this very situation).
And my sister was just like ” Go and ask her. ” I have to admit, I get a bit nervous when randomly talking to strangers but I still did it ( and now I feel no shame in doing this).
So I walked up to her, at the underground station, and just casually asked her if she would like me to take her pictures. She said yes.
This way I got to know a lot of interesting people and I am truly hapy for that now.
These pictures were taken on a KodakGold200 film back in August.
Wassup? So I was in Berlin a few weeks ago (yes, again) and took some pics (as usual). This summer was indeed an all analouge summer. And Yes you are safe to assume that I am broke as hell now and that I spent hours scanning pictures. But yea that’s fun so whatever right? But I still don’t get why shooting film is so expensive, even though a lot of people started shooting film again. #makeshootingfilmgreatagain
So who them beautiful and cool people on those photos huh?
“Hi can I take your picture?” “yea.” ( I sadly do not know his name )
Don’t know his name either but he was just sitting there bumping his mixtape and being totaly happy with himself and his life. I aspire to reach this level of satisfaction. I bought his mixtape, because you should always support great artists.
Just an ordinary man peing in the corner, nothing unusual.
And I don’t know his name either. I was too shy to ask him for his name but not shy enough to ask if I could take a pic (?).
I know his name. It’s Joshua. He sure got some sick skating skills. Check out hisinstagram.
Some Mauerpark flicks.
I don’t know their name, but they offered me some of their sunflower seeds.
Everyone that knows me well knows that I hate Munich and would rather live anywhere else than in this city and that, in fact, I grew up in the North West of Germany and never stop making this clear whenever I meet new people, because I’m still reppin’ and representin’North(R)West. So it’s a special kind of bound I have to this place. The “Block” I’m claiming to be from is Wuppertal, Elberfeld to be more precisely. That’s where I spent nearly my whole childhood and made the best experiences ( and then I moved to Munich lol).
A few weeks ago I decided to visit some friends there and spent some time and, of course, shoot. It’s been five years now since the last time I have visited my hometown so it’s really been bout damn time. It really was great coming back. 10/10 would do it again.
For me it was important to catch the vibe while chilling with cool people and having a good time. Most of the time this is what it’s all about, no further meaning or “message”. Not everything needs explanation. Just do what you want. Or what you feel like.
