I just read a good interview, introducing Marji Lang. She was kind enough to send often some of her great pictures to my group “BLOG IT!” – and so I used her photo-messages in some of my articles, for example those about the term “Deference” or “Teach your children”. She is a master in colorful compositions – and the best field to search for this is INDIA. On the other hand: not only travel photography has interesting messages. Staying home in Paris, she also made some unforgettable shots – maybe only for me unforgettable: family walking through a snowy forest. I fixed a similar memory (like that winter walk) as a naive painting on our kitchen wall: it is our yearly ritual during Xmas season, to make such a walk through the dark silent wood, you can only hear the snow under your shoes. Maybe there is an important goal of photo-documents way beyond the colorful travel reports, far away from the clashes of religions, wordless, near to our very own identity …
