For a while I have wanted to make a trip through my home country and explore the obvious, the unspectacular, and to search for the common and familiar in my surroundings. After traveling so much and so far in the past few years I felt ready for a bit of habitat. We’ve been home with our parents and grandparents for almost two weeks and went on a few trips in the area, walked through little villages, countless forests and woods and digged into family history and heritage a bit. This has been a beautiful and thoughtful journey so far and I am so happy I finally started.
We are preparing to return to Berlin tomorrow and possibly take another small trip to Saxony in a few days. I’ve only just started getting warm with this subject and am not quite sure where it will take me over time. Here is a first glimpse of my favourite shots so far. I am very selective and still not exactly sure where to start or stop or what to concentrate on, but maybe that’s the interesting part or this very special project.
