may 16th 1968 in Zurich - Switzerland
Early in my life I already had my first experience with
photography. I was about 10 years old when I participated
in a little "photo contest", which was organized by my school.
So my colleges and I went out in the fields and most of
my pals were shooting flowers. I got a bit bored by this,
and searched for other things. I found some rocks nearby,
and behind them, there was as tree. Fascinated by this scenery,
I laid down on the ground and took a picture. After we developed
the film-role and exposed some prints, I had a strange,
great feeling. Not necessary to say that the teacher honored
me with the first price. Now 21 years later I still remember
this. And with every project that I finish, and with every
day I get deeper into it, I see that photography is not
only art. it's magic. René.
