At the time writing this we are living in truly weird times. There is a global pandemic ravaging the world, causing a lot of sadness and grief, but also turning our lives upside down. As someone who travels a lot, both for leisure and for work, the closure of the borders is a major change in my life. I had a lot of plans for travels and also for this website, which are canceled or on hold for now. But you have to see the upsides as well. There is a feeling of change in the air, of reflection and rethinking. Now we have the time to ask ourselves: What is important and what do we truly need? The future seems more uncertain than ever before.
A good time for a retrospection. For many years I was quite active on instagram and I liked the very distinct square format. Intentionally I kept it very separate from this website, because I didn’t think the shots were fitting for desktop screens. But having time at home I am sorting my library and I like the instagram format for some shots, so I decided to do some collections. Let’s start with a country and city which is very close to me. Selected impressions of Lisbon, Portugal in 2014.
