November 3, 2017 The starling has just been named "Bird of the Year 2018" by the Nabu. In Huningue, near Saint Louis, near Basel, more and more starlings have been gathering since the beginning of October to fly south. I've been there almost every day for four weeks to document this natural spectacle. Since I can not show any movies on my website, here is the link, click here: Facebook page. It was the last few days but significantly less starlings on the ground. No comparison to last week. It gets too cold for them.

October 9, 2017 My first music video went online (click here: youtube). It's the song "Sound on me" by Patty Moon. My part in it is the film work

Thank you very much to all my partners for the friendly cooperation in my "Portrait-Shootings incl" in August 2017!

An introduction to the first cycle

An essay of Barbara Glindemann, art historian to the fourth exhibition of the hamburger photographers Lutz P. Kayser, with the title „symbol – part I“ in the bookstore Sautter and Lackmann.

Lutz P. Kayser introduces in this first cycle interpretations in the form of series and single photographs on the subject „Nearness – distance“. 22 Prints are shown at canvas: Size 35 x 35 inches and 35 x 23 inches in the portrait format, horizontal format or squarely.

In this short introduction I would like to speak of photographic symbols and the especially atmospheric kind of the expression photograph of Kayser. Just his symbolic photos have opened Kayser the doors to the famous agencies. I will begin with some remarks about the subject „Nearness – bring near to distance“ and then with the help of the following three leading questions me to the genre of the symbolic photograph and before this background venture some careful interpretations: 1. What is a symbol? 2. How does a photographic symbol originate? 3. How does Kayser generate photographic symbols by means of specific unsharpness? The subject of the issued photographs confronts the concepts Nearness and Distance with each other and produces a contrast. This antithetische configuration is of use Kayser for the photographic play with the observation of the world. Nearness and distance can be separated neither of each other, nor are actually possible to experience both at the same time. If we look at things at close range, we lose the distance. If we look at things from the distance, we lose the nearness. The distance brings us an overview and clarity. The nearness can make the border between space and body fluently. The beauty of structure and small details becomes suddenly visible. It is in such a way as if one could look into the things. In the area between nearness and distance the play begins with reality and fiction. Penetrating into smaller and smaller worlds.
