Only The Sunny Hours: Contemporary Photography with a Brownie 127

Barbara Dyrschka writes: I loved taking photos with the Brownie camera. I had to find the right subject to use the 8 frames. So I got up very early to find the light at Lake Wannsee in Berlin, where I am located. The Max Liebermann Villa is my very special place to have a walk through the wonderful garden or, in wintertime, sitting in front of the fireplace inside and enjoying a tea or coffee. Max Liebermann was a Berlin artist and the Villa was for his family and work in summertime. I always get inspired by visiting this wonderful place.

Barbara Dyrschka is also an artist of performances. She has a world wide gallery without a website.

She writes: I love to take analog photos. I take my old AE1 Canon and a film of 36 frames for a trip of 3 weeks. So I have to be very careful of what I am shooting. For 25 years I have been working with a Romanian photographer on a project about Romanian gypsies. Our collection is 6000 frames rich. These are photos which can never be taken again.

Barbara Dyrschka lives and works between countries and cultures. She goes two or three times a year to Central Asia and coaches students at universities.
