I was so touched by an artical I read in a magazine today about the photopraper/collector Jochen Raiss aka @imperfekt.photography
He found a treasure of privite pictures of WOMAN IN TREES. 🌳 Apparently it was a hype to let your picture taken while sitting in a tree, between 1920 - 1950 (a hype could last that long in a society not changing as fast as today?) OMG the utterly joy of that. You can visit his page @imperfekt.photography
or buy his book and feel the happiness of these woman for that short moment they made it into a tree and smiled into the camera. A lot of hypes in woman photography passed. One day we will look back on the duckface🦆, the celebrity poses so well redone by @celestebarber
, hard nippels🍋, sandy butts🍑, snapchat filters 🐶, seriously looking away from the camera, even more seriously looking models, without a glimpse of joy etc etc. What ‘Woman in Trees’ learned me, is that you don’t need to travel to Ibiza or Bali to show the world how lucky, privileged, pretty or happy you are. Just be it and don’t be so self-conscious about how it should look ( Note: I unfollow everybody who is even thinking of showing off their expensive Ibiza and Bali holidays, so how would I even know 🤔) Happiness is free and happiness can be found everywhere.
Find a tree near your house, climb it and bribe your children to make a picture (in case you dont have a husband or a lover like me, otherwise its better that he/she does it, believe me, or see for yourself in the last video)
Warning, obviously these woman dind’t see the result of their picures only weeks later, otherwise nobody above the age of 35 would hang upside down as you can see in the second picture. But fuck it, joy above beauty! 💪🏻
The videos in the end show that I was never much of a tomboy when I was young, but more the kind of girl locking herself up in her room, pretending her barbies where prostitudes. And that my jumpsuit is a see through. But fuck that as well, joy above shame! 💪🏻 #frauenaufbäumen #womanintrees #cheapholidays #vintagephotography #feminist #girlsjustwannahavefun #travelblogger #wandelust #zen #mindfulness #nature #naturephotography #stuntwoman #summer #singlemom #bemoeiniet
