My next projects: overview

I always carry around and develop new ideas for photographic stories I want to tell. Some of those I have already developped to a certain point of implementation. Others still need some research and planning before they can go into implementation.
Telling visual stories is not just grabbing my camera and shoot. It requires quite some preparation work, reading material, searching for contacts and locations, organizing meetings and scheduling the specific shootings.
The following list gives a short info about the situation of each project in my visual storytelling pipeline and links to the specific project page.

“MATEANDO” the book about yerba mate and its people

Originally, the field work for this book was planned for May to July of 2020. But due to the Covid19 lockdowns travelling to the countries of Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina was not possible in this time. As my field work is depending also of harvest times of the yerba I have to postpone this project to 2021.

“PULQUE” revival of an ancient drink

This visual story was originally foreseen for after the “mateando” project. But with the postergation of “Mateando” y gained time for this project. Harvest time for pulque is twice per year. So I hope to be allowed to travel around October 2010 to Mexico for this book project.

“KIDS of the HABESH” how they see their world

This project grew out of an initiative a close friend of mine. He is suporting in a Roma slum in eastern Slovakia. He once took me with him to deliver some goods friend of this project alway collect to support the families living there. So I could see the advancements this initative achieved over the years. They are working especially with kids and mothers of the slum. With the link to the specific page you will soon find some ideas for my visual storytelling project. A first impression about the local conditions you can find on this blog post.
