Werner Heyckendorff was our invited guest 21 January 2007

hello, hello, i'm at a place called vertigo...

lights go down. it's dark. the jungle is your head can't rule your heart.
i'm feeling so much stronger than i thought.
your eyes are wide and though your soul it can't be bought.
your mind can wander. hello, hello, i'm at a place called vertigo...

Invited guest: Peter de Ru

Boatsman in Waalhaven

Peter de Ru benutzt die Kamera als ein Instrument, um die Vorposten
Welt zu erkunden. Es ist eine der Eigenheiten der magischen Linse
und der
Emulsion, solche Spuren sammeln und sichern zu können.
- Peter Cornell

I first met Peter about four or five years ago. There was not much time
to talk about photography, but I remember him showing me the book
with pictures from Rotterdam. I was struck by the great quality of
Peter´s work and his pictures stayed with me a long time. So, by pure
accident, we happened to meet in Stockholm the other day. I told
Peter about The F Blog and he agreed to participate with a series
of pictures.

I am glad to be able to show some of his work here.

Peter was a student at the almost legendary Christer Strömholm´s
Photo School (Fotoskolan) from 1971-73.

At the exhibition "Christer Strömholm - Lebenswerk und Fotoschule"
in Berlin 2003
Peter de Ru was one the former students at Fotoskolan
who exhibited their work
along with Strömholms pictures. The others
were Anders Petersen, Gunnar Smoliansky, Dawid, Kenneth Gustavsson
and Ulla Lemberg.

The exhibition was a great success and the newpaper Tagesspiegel called
it the most important
in Berlin during the spring of 2003.

Back to the pictures from Rotterdam. And back to a text by Peter Cornell
translated to German.

Ein Foto aus dem Rotterdamer Hafen zeigt eine Kompaßnadel, die das
Aussehen einer abgenutzten Rotunde oder militärischen Abschußrampe
Ehe die Erzschiffe auf den Atlantik hinaus entschwinden, korrigieren
sie ihre
Kompasse, indem sie diesen einsamen Vorposten umkreisen, der
Hilfe wie Mangel bedeutet.

In the second part of this presentation of Peter de Ru´s work, I will tell
you more about him and his current projects.

whats that fuzz about gloomy days?

I need the winter to get a perspective,
I bloody hate it, but I need it.
Somehow I feel that it is essential.
One of those things that are incorporated, an integrated part of me.

Like that feeling of getting snow inside the collar in december.
Like that feeling of getting beat up by the schools worst maniac in snowy january.

From here it can only get better.

So whats the fuzz, this is not the end, it is the beginning.
