Heritage: about Venice & a Leica

I am extremely grateful for growing up in a family, where art has played an important role – be it music, theatre, fine art or photography. My earliest memories are my father taking pictures with his LEICA whilst traveling Italy or hiking in the Dolomite Alps.

Chiesa di San Giorgio Maggiore

Chiesa San Giorgio Maggiore

One picture always had a great fascination, and until today, for me it is the essence of all these memories: his view of Venice, Italy. A slightly misty day in the 60s, people rushing over a square near the waters; in the distance, barely visible and yet distinguishable, the Chiesa San Giorgio Maggiore.

This picture always has been inspiration, heritage and a path to follow…
