I was honored to be asked to exhibit some of my art at a house exhibition in Zebelin which is outside Hamburg with the legendary artist Nina Meyer and furniture designer Steffi Ribbe . Her house is a studio..top to bottom..colour and paint in every corner and to be able to add to this with my shades captured in my lens was an inspiration. All my photos are printed on canvas and range from 40" x 60" and I can ship globally if you are interested in hanging some of my world in yours.
Thanks again to Nina and Steffi and for all who came to the show

Paul, you will be there to lighten their load.
You will be there to put hot dinner on the table, as everyone comes in out of the cold.
You will be there to fill the house with fuel, and keep the home warm until spring. You will be
