It's always a jump into the deep end to give up something that's become so important during the past 3-4 years. As one door closes though, another one opens. I started Vergissmeinnicht 2009 basically to keep my family informed and to have an alternative to my diary. It then developed to something I never expected it to be. Vergissmeinnicht as it is now, is not really ready for the next step though. That's maybe because besides from Germans, no one can actually understand, pronounce or remember the name. Things had to change.
As I was always better in speaking through photos than words, PAPERBOATS is focused on photography covering fashion and music. Text will be reduced and only appear in English to accessible internationally. My work for FashionDaily.TV/Freshmilk.TV has shown me a lot, and will also accompany me in the future. My main focus will be PAPERBOATS though.
Making this possible involved a lot of people. My biggest thank you goes to the two guys who designed the page, sacrificed their free time and tolerated all my wishes. Without you, I would still google html codes and fight against blogspot. The next in line is my colleague and friend Arturo Martinez who is the man behind the video. Not only did he film it, but edited it afterwards and most importantly always listened to anything I had to share with someone. A final thank you goes to Paul Aidan Perry for making my paper boat dream come true and not ending up in the Müggelsee. To Hanna Schulze for being such a great second camera and support, and to Boj Hoppe for always giving me inspiration whenever I need it.
Set the sails and enjoy the journey!
