you can call me David or Aleman Pirata, like my Mexican friends. Welcome to my world! Enjoy a refreshing cocktail, which is philosophy, psychology mixed with photography and a pinch of humor and creativity. Cheers!
Now that you are relaxed, we can talk about some deep stuff.
Surely, in your life you had difficult and dark episodes, full of pain, worry, feeling power & hopeless, having difficulties sleeping and big doubt about life and yourself. Right?
We all look on surface, like we never had episodes like that, but we all have!
Some more, some less.
Do you remember what or who helped you back then? Maybe it doesn’t feel good to remember those times, I understand. But after all you triumphed over it and it was a great learning experience, which shaped who you are today.
Or maybe you are right now struggling? It is temporarily & you are writing your story. Soon it will be a new chapter!
A long time ago I closed the dark chapter of my life. A chapter full of drama, pain, destruction & no future. It felt like being a train station, observing everybody going somewhere, while I did not know where to go. Empty pockets, empty soul and feeling like an astronaut in space, alone. Alone in darkness.
I tried, other people tried. It was a lot of trying to get back on track with a destination. No success.
The deepest point of my life, was a turning point! Light was at the end of the tunnel. And it was not a train!
After closing that chapter, I withdraw myself. Until my dad gave me a small compact camera.
That moment changed history, my history.
I became curious about life. I went out to see the beauty around me. Through photography I learned to be more attentive, to leave the past behind and focus on the moment.
Also, the camera brought me where the action is. It made me feel so alive!
The camera made me an investigator about life.
Come with me on the journey to investigate life and exchange thoughts!
We can talk in English, German or Spanish!
