Everything is enlightened

I always wanted to take a photo-reportage of a concert. I had pictures in my head of stars like David Bowie when he put on his make-up in the dressing room in front of a mirror. Catching intimate moments of musicians and crew, photographed through my special street glasses. In April 2019 I had the chance to do it.
Andreas Krüger is the founder of the vinyl label clostridiumrecords. He started in 2010 and his 50th vinyl record is coming up this year. He's been my colleague and friend for over 15 years. We work together in an intensive care unit. Andi is my „partner in crime“, during the time his record label grew up my street photography has evolved. Andreas is one of the few people in my life to whom I can entrust everything. He is carrying the heart at the right place. We always had a lot of conversations. A REAL friend ❤️
On April 13, 2019, Andi organized his first labelnight in the Pauluschurch in Dortmund. A rock festival with four bands. And I'm allowed to accompany the festival with my camera.I had the great pleasure to meet the lighting master Peter Petersen. He is a specialist in analog lighting. His skills combined with the music and interior of the church were a perfect symbiosis.
A very nice guy and I was very impressed of his lightshow. Everything was enlightened in a beautiful psychedelic retro style. Describing with words is not enough here. You have to have see it.
It was not my personal taste of music. But I loved the feeling and the spirit. A very nice experience overall. And I met many new friends. Hope to meet you again sometime. Thank you for having me

I end up here with the words of Andi

When you shoot a celebrity and you don't know it

In 2016 I shot this photo in Madrid. My friend Michael and I walked across an old vintage market. A market full of vintage stuff. We saw a lot of old vinyl records. My personel focus was on the people there. Always looking for some special and uniqe humans. Then I saw him. I waited till he noticed me. In this moment his left hand made this gesture. What a uniqe guy. I love it when people have enough self-confidence and express themselves. It is not easy today and very rare because we are all adjusted. I think someone like him wants to be seen. That's why I had no problem shooting the photo. 
I did not know that he was well known in Madrid. Willem Pieters the owner of the gallery De Rivier where I exhibit my work last year told me, his friend was the neighbor of the guy on the picture. His name is Paco Clavel. He is a singer and one of the biggest record collectors from Madrid.

Sometimes the world is a small place.

For me street photography is much more than taking pictures.
It’s a very personal journey about life, humans, love, peace and art.
