Munich, Germany (session: Raglan, New Zealand)
In December 2015 I decided to leave my normal life behind for a bit and travel to one of the most stunning and diverse countries on this planet: New Zealand. Being burnt out from an exhausting wedding season and a year full of changes and challenges I had no desire to turn my memories into photographs, I simply wanted to travel and take it all in with my eyes and my heart. But when I saw pictures of Yhana, a local from Hamilton, my photography instincts came to life again. The urge to photograph her was so strong that I changed my itinerary, threw my plans overboard, and made sure that not even bad weather could keep us from collaborating. On a rainy day we went to Raglan, a surfers town graced with long, wild beaches made of black volcanic sand and simply started shooting. There was no plan, no desired outcome – just the two of us and the wind and the rain. The outcome is something that is raw, honest, and created from the heart.
