Short Film: Young Hearts by Acapulco!

Young HeartsScreenshot: Young Hearts.

“We met at a retirement home. I saw her, grabbed a business card from my pocket and slammed it on her table. That same night, she rang suggesting we should go on a date.” Hans

Hans (79) & Edith (76), Ellen (84) & Horst (77), Ralf & Kristin (both 73) – three couples with two things in common: They are in love with each other and with dancing. Every Monday, they attend a senior’s disco in Berlin Steglitz and prove that love and the lust for life are never-ending. This heart-warming short film is made by film duo Acapulco (aka Nadine Schrader and Julia Wilczok) and has one simple lesson: It doesn’t matter, if you are 18 or 81 – Love is all.

I wish you a wonderful weekend. Have a lovely one :)!

The Problems Of Other Couples!

Sometimes I sit in a coffee shop and observe other people, imagining their lifes. Are they happy, are they sad, what makes them lucky, what problems do they have? This is fun … and also gives you a new perspective on your own life: It’s not ALWAYS happy-go-lucky (but quite often :)). The School of Life made a video, interviewing couples about their problems … it’s like a glimpse into otherwise locked relationship-worlds. Interesting, crazy, inspiring and though-provoking (e. g. “Wow, even the happiest looking couples do have their troubles.”).

I wish you a wonderful weekend (without any problems)!

Real-Life Projects Pt.3: Love Ever After by Lauren Fleishman

After my grandfather’s death, I found a series of love letters that he had written to my grandmother in a book next to his bed. They had been married for more than 50 years. This project is intended as a photographic series of “love letters.” The dominant portraiture of my series consists of New York couples who have been together for more than 50 years. This work includes photographs, voice recordings and text.

Oh dear, I LOVE this project. Love Ever After by Lauren Fleishman is a real-life project based on a simple idea. It’s about love, it tells big stories, it is wonderful photography of people who are authentic. Gorgeous! I have nothing more to say. Besides… have fun digging into the worlds of the here presented couples (Click onto the pics to enlarge them or go directly to Lauren Fleishman’s website)!
