This One.

A Project About the Emotional Attachment to Fashion Items

About one and a half years ago, I sat in the kitchen of my old apartment with Kathi, my former roommate. We were dreaming about love, our lives and the future. Painting pictures in our heads about our jobs and families, about where we wanted to live when we were fifty and how to name our kids. We did this for hours, day after day. Smoking cigarettes, drinking coffee and loving life. As we talked and talked, we somehow came across our “wanna-dos”, projects we would really love to create one day. And somehow, somewhere in the middle of our conversations, I had the idea for this project: A project about women wearing dresses.
Within a few minutes, the concept for the whole project was made up. Women wearing garments they feel emotionally attached to, portrayed in a fashion-photographic way, and the stories behind their clothes (all written by myself based on the informations the girls gave me)

With this project, I want to share stories and faces, personal thoughts and embodiment of beauty found in every woman, in different ways.

UPDATE 3.10.2020: 

As “This One” was my bachelor’s project, I am really proud to tell, that I graduated with honors at FH Joanneum in September 2020. 
My bachelor is over, but the project is not. I really want to continue capturing women and writing stories about them, so my dear friend Lou (who also already stood in front of the camera for “This One”) is going to join the project. As she is a writer, she is going to take over most of the written parts. Further, she will help me plan the shootings and support me in all of the creative processes of the project. 

Happily looking forward to it <3
