Hmmm….DELICIOUS!

Natalia’s harp always reminded me of a beautiful high heeled red shoe….it is so gorgeous that harp…and I like it together with the little traditional one. Beautiful.

Iarla O Lionaird @ The Helix Theatre in Dublin

for a change of scenery I slip in a photo from the Green Fire Islands performance in Dublin again. I love the Theatre setting for the show. This I captured during the rehearsal just a few hours before the evening performance..

The Green Fire Islands Tour 2012…Day 2

…it’s 10.30pm and I think am a little tired…! Did we just arrived 28 hours ago!? Hence not many words other than – it was a great day. Over the course of the day all arrived. Aotearoa and Ireland are here. Just beautiful to see everyone again. Wonderful and important meeting to get to know each other, to reconnect and to acknowledge the past production and embrace the path, joys and challenges ahead. A lovely vibrant energy is in the air. The day finished with a sound check in the dance studio of the Tyrone Guthrie Centre where most rehearsals will take place…let some photos tell the story of day 2…

The Green Fire Islands Tour 2012…the blog….arriving in Ireland

After just having arrived in Ireland with Green Fire Islands I immediately changed my mind about not blogging. Of course I will. I will blog photos and impressions of every day here in Ireland and maybe London. Most of the NZ artists and crew (16 of us) arrived at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annamakerrig yesterday late afternoon and since then I am in overdrive with my camera. This is one of the most beautiful and inspiring places I have seen in a long time. Amazing. Stunning. Photographer’s heaven. Everyone is enchanted and the decision to stay here for the rehearsals looks absolutely perfect. Even though we traveled for about 30 hours no one could go to bed after having arrived here. Too much to see, too beautiful, too many hellos and arrivals. Of course, I can only post a few photos …however, they might give an idea about what’s happening here. Over the course of today most Irish artists will arrive…so watch this space – I’ll try to post a few pics each day. See you!

The trip, arrival and first hellos…(both galleries are slideshows)

About

Kathrin May16 0090 edit4 350x 260 About

Kathrin is an award-winning photographer with a focus on documentary and storytelling. She has a passion and eye for unique stories and presents them in a way that intrigues and inspires the audience. She works on self-initiated projects energized by what inspires herself in the world that surrounds her – the topics are divers. Kathrin has exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions in New Zealand and abroad. She enjoys collaborating with artist of other disciplines to intensify the story she is telling.

Her show ‘Full Moon Kingdom’ was one of the leading visual arts events of the Auckland Arts Festival 2016 and Kathrin’s exhibition FADE is traveling to be showcased in four galleries in 2016 / 2017.

‘I take photographs of stories that captivate and have meaning to me. Most of my photographs are grounded in people and moods. By being present in the moment and responding to what unfolds around me without preconception I try to capture images that are honest, empathic and real. That’s what I want to catch – reality in all its facets. Instead of setting up poses I wait for actuality by fading in the background. That’s when I feel I become one with my subject and am able to catch emotions and sentiments. That’s when I feel really excited.’
