I had such a wonderful day yesterday! Vienna Photo Book Festival at Galerie Anzenberger, meeting & chatting with Klaus Pichler (thanks for the book!), buying Anders Petersen's 'Du mich auch' from a lovely lady from Denmark (incl. one of my favourite photographs; that’s also the one the lady chose to pose with when I asked to take her picture, more about that later).
Finally picking up Jak Tuggener's breathtaking book 'Fabrik' from the 5Uhr30 booth (thanks to the lady with pity for the poor), a long time favourite, and finally running into Andreas H. Bitesnich who I didn’t recognize (I guess I’m better at recognizing his photographs). Thanks for the lovely chat Andreas, I can’t wait to see your book collection in, how I already call it, ‘the treasure-house’!
After that I had a great evening in the sun with fantastic open air music, friends, chats, laughter, dog, coffee, drinks, an adventure, dinner (I like my adventures before dinner)… if someone asked me to describe my perfect day, well I guess yesterday would get very close to that description, only a few things missing, as always :) but that’s life and that’s what I love about it, don’t you, too? things to wait for - such things are rare these days. I guess…
I’ll write about Klaus Pichler's new, great book, 'Skeletons in the Closet’, soon - stay tuned! Yours trully, Burnéd
