Friday Quote: Georg Trakl

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

My Heart at Evening

Toward evening you hear the cry of the bats.
Two black horses bound in the pasture,
The red maple rustles,
The walker along the road sees ahead the small tavern.
Nuts and young wine taste delicious,
Delicious: to stagger drunk into the darkening woods.
Village bells, painful to hear, echo through the black fir branches,
Dew forms on the face.

Georg Trakl, 1887 – 1914

For the first time Peter Oehlmann runs the seminar “(Another) Street View“:

Another Street View - New Seminars at BerlinPhotoWorkshops

“I would like to invite you to a somewhat different Street View, for an open, questioning and wondering view on the city. – Whether you continue a work or begin a new project, I offer a critical and stimulating support during the process of image selection, editing and issues of presentation.”

For the second time Kai-Olaf Hesse’s one day workshop “Photo book or photo series?” deals with forms of presentation and its context.

Another Street View - New Seminars at BerlinPhotoWorkshops

“This workshop addresses the prerequisites for the content and design of an image series, which shall then be brought together to construct a photo book. – On the basis of participant’s own works and books, the workshop will discuss possibilities and critical aspects in regard to the presentation of photographs in book form.”
