I was in Italy at the end of August (2011)... I had been through some pretty rough times. I went down to the beach by myself after a club visit, around 1:30 a.m. I stood at this beach-bar about 10 meters away from the ocean. There were still a few lights on. The beach was totally dark and deserted. The moon was almost still full and its light threw a sort of path way of light onto the water. It was really beautiful... just the moon, the ocean, the beach and.. me. I was listing to music on my mp3 player, still hearing the waves above the music. As I was listening to the song: „who killed Mr. Moonlight“ by bauhaus, I started getting these pictures into my head. I started to dream and all I heard was the waves and- in the shadow of his smile - I felt completely empty and serene.. and I thought... wow .. another 1,5 weeks of this.. wonderful...

we had to leave the next day....

in the shadow of his smile....

When I was working on my last photos, I was listening to music from bauhaus. One of my favorite songs stuck in my head.. King Vulcano. Somehow I started dreaming and kept on singing to myself.... lonely people burn like candles... and slowly these pictures came into my mind.

 

 

 

In 2008, I went to a club for Halloween.Before that, I made these cards and handed them out to people in the club. They had to, if they wanted to read the entire poem, find people, who had the other parts.

I took these photos of myself via self-timer. Which is how I take most of my photos. I bought the masks (white) in Venice and decorated and painted them.
