It has been awfully quiet on this blog for a long time now, and the silence has a sad reason. A week before Christmas Eve, a major tragedy hit my family. For the following weeks, I had absolutely no mind to think about photography or anything related to it. After the first shock had settled down somewhat and some important things were taken care of, I traveled back to Germany for two weeks to spend some time with my family. The days I had with my mother and my siblings were an amazing and important time to heal. Especially my little three-year-old niece Lisa with her innocent light-heartedness helped me a lot in my grief.

saying goodbye with my camera

Spill the Beans is a startup online platform designed to promote high-quality multimedia journalism in Germany. The latest project they feature is Briony Campbell’sSaying Goodbye with my Camera,” a wonderfully personal and moving piece. Campbell accompanies her dying father on his last days of his battle against cancer – and in the process learns to deal with her own grief. Make sure to look at this when you really have time for it. This is definitely not a piece that you want to watch in a rush.

professional project: it is done

Over the last 14 months I’ve been working on my professional project, the capstone of my Master’s degree at the Missouri School of Journalism. The time has been a rollercoaster of constant ups and downs, successes and backlashes. But it has paid off as I have learned important lessons about photography, multimedia, journalism and about myself. I’m excited to present to you the outcome of all of this: forgiven, but not forgotten. Please visit the project website, and if you feel compelled to voice your thoughts about it, leave your comments in the forum section.
