On August 15th, the exceptional and very promising young journalist Caroline Schmitt will launch the opening of her first photography exhibition Drowning in Daylight at An einem Sonntag im August in Berlin - Prenzlauer Berg. The exhibition will show analogue and digital shots that document her fascinating experiences of a life as a creative in contemporary London.
The images of captivating young women in combination with an extraordinary glimpse of light have a way of showing extracts of the world itself and seem to get across the energy and the love for life of a whole generation effortlessly. Always honest but sometimes with a wink she takes us on a journey through a pulsing city, along the lines „London is what you make of it.“ Her photographs are highly autobiographical and show their subjects from an unspectacular yet unique point of view:
"Photography to me is a more authentic and colourful diary. Everything in this world moves incredibly fast and it seems as if the camera lens is one of the rare things that is still capable of catching the most exciting parts in whatever frequency. No pen, no paper needed, just the vivid image of what you see and what you'd like to see. In the best case, these two elements make a photograph. No one wants pure reality. Well, I least I don't!"
If you’re interested in what makes her visual diary that special, come and visit Caroline’s vernissage at An einem Sonntag im August on August 15. The exhibition will run until September 10th at Kastanienallee 103, 10435 Berlin.
