Photographed by Kathrin Krok


This image was taken at the place of one of our friends. It was an inspiration Indoor Workshops in September 2021. I always tell my students how important it is to focus on the emotions and an intimate framing of the image. For this image, I was standing next to a student and told her to get even closer (we were shooting at 35mm) because the emotions would be even stronger than if she shot the photo wider. What makes the picture so interesting besides the intimacy is the composition. If you look closely, you can see all the little triangles in the picture.

Hi, I’m Kathrin, I’m not very good at telling stories. I prefer to let pictures speak. There are pictures of pretty much every situation in my life. Even of the most embarrassing haircut I ever had to wear on my head. And I think that’s the most beautiful thing about photography.
