For the first ever publication of my photographs and my first book I chose this small selection of photographs taken in February 2009 during the Prague Carnival Crystal Ball at the Clam-Gallas Palace and at the Pachtuv Palace Hotel.
I was generously invited there for my birthday courtesy of some very good friends and the Pachtuv Palace MaMaison Hotel.
The delightful ball and carnival are being revived after these centuries old customs had been banned during communist times. I think it will again become a very desirable destination and event for international carnival revelers in the future.
Ever since my dad gave me my first camera when I was 18, I have carried one with me wherever I go. I love capturing the beauty of the world I see around me in the big picture or in detail, provided by people, nature or man made things and situations. I am a German born citizen of the world, widely traveled, now living in the UK. My glass is always more than half full! I have just discovered making books with Blurb and I am loving it! My Commitment: Bringing forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just human presence on this planet as the guiding principle of our times. My Dream: to create safe and comfortable homes for every child that lives in a physical and emotional slum today. My vehicles for transformation and contribution: www.room4magic.hubhub.org and the Pachamama Project.
