By Night

With days shorter and colder, sometimes it’s difficult to find the right time to go out and take some pictures.

It is still too dark when commuting back from work, so I started taking pictures by night, even though I was never comfortable doing so. I wasn’t sure my camera could handle the low light conditions very well, and probably my hands weren’t steady enough to avoid bringing a tripod.

Whatever the result, I enjoyed trying. It seems like, when it’s darker, the world slows down a bit, even in very busy crossroads.

Thanks to Justin Carey whose talk in July 2016 convinced me – and everyone else in the room – that everything is more interesting at night .

The Berlin Fascination

Watching the documentary “David Bowie: The Last Five Years” the other night, I realised there still were two great albums for me to discover. I somehow lost The Next Day – which, I was sure, I bought and saved it somewhere – and, knowing it was supposed to be his parting gift, I’ve never been able to fully listen to Blackstar.

As per the documentary though, Blackstar was never supposed to be a goodbye, so I might give it a go now. Funny how the mind works.

At some point, it struck me how the song Where Are We Now? is about Berlin. That information was lost, too. Seeing Berlin again and hearing the lyrics, reminded me of a recent trip to the German capital, and how much I missed it afterwards.

I could never thank enough the lovely people at Shutter Hub, for the wonderful and exciting opportunity. It’s been an honour for me to be a contributor to such an amazing event.

Along with the exhibition, a series of interesting and well organised meet-ups, talks, workshops and portfolio reviews took place.

I’ve had the chance to meet with talented photographers and local creatives, and I look forward to the next year’s exhibition.
