You are invited to see the cranes in my studio in Potsdam. Alternatively I can show you the cranes via Skype or Zoom. I am also happy to answer your questions via email. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

A video series of crane stories

In many countries, stories and legends are told about the crane as a mythical being. The crane is a symbol of good fortune and harbinger of spring. It represents longevity, loyalty, vigilance and wisdom. In this ongoing film project, I retell some of these fables and stories from different parts of the world in a new way.
