Life

Escape into the photographs by Monika Holzner. Walk on frozen ponds and bask in natural, warm light. When browsing her website I feel like taking my time to absorb each photograph's detail and angle. Each image telling another aspect of a person's life. How do they live? Where do they go? What do they love?

What would you photograph to illustrate your life?

These photos are amazing. I could easily get lost in each one.

I don't know what I'd photograph to illustrate my life...that's a tough one. Maybe my camera? Because the biggest chunk of my life is the pleasure I get from observing beauty.

Such serene images. Gosh, I think I'd have to photograph my husband and myself, back to back at our computers, one cat per person to illustrate my life.

the photos are amazing- so personal withouth really showing the person... a great skill
i was thinking a while what my photo would have to consist off- but honestly i am not sure..i would love to see what she would do actually
one item that should be on it is probably my handbag- marry poppins

These are beautiful! I think at the moment photographs to reflect my life would need to capture the many brief journeys I undertake... Not always exciting but integral to what I do, who I am, and am ever becoming - a restlessness. I seem to be moving a lot. Or perhaps just a picture of my suitcase?

That image of the ice pond is stunning... it looks like she's walking on the night sky.

Good question. I love taking photographs, but I would have to find out what my life is about... Maybe my photo narrative on the right column of my blog might reveal a more internal part of my life.

What beautiful, serene images. I love the colors and the lighting. I would take a picture of my little kitchen table - it's my favorite part of my apartment!

Design Lovely said...

Love the frozen pond!
Hmmmmm... what would my photo be... that is a difficult question... a crazy woman or a serene photo of Paris... the two sides of moi! Real life crazy... and longing for peace in Paris!

interesting thoughts!!!love the shoe rack.

Victoria said...

Lovely photos. I especially like the shoes all lined up on the shelves. As for my life? It would be photos of fabric piles, dark chocolate, growing family and dancing in the kitchen with my husband.

Joyce said...

Beautiful photos!
Right now if I were to take any photos of my life it would look a chicken with its head cut off lived here! In one room I have my little project of clueing and wrapping, another writing Christmas cards (just finished this task) and the kitchen baking... Give me a week and everything will be back in place.

Crave said...

love this first photo! we can all relate to it one time or another...

Stephanie said...

I love these - there is a quiet restfulness about them that is very appealing.

Freshly Found said...

Thanks for the link! Love the shoes on the shelf!

Georgia (AKA g-bug) said...

agreed.

hmmmm . . . i would photograph anything outside, especially the details of nature that most people miss and don't appreciate.

great shots. i really like the first one. perhaps i'd photograph my sewing room. although it's only one place where i spend a considerable amount of time, it's usual scattered state is a reflection of my thoughts.

Courtney said...

These photos are beautiful, and I especially love the first one on the ice.
