2022 Retrospective

In 2022 I archived1 21,469 photos, 4,846 of which, I marked as favorites. (2021’s numbers for comparison: 22,097 archived, 4,809 favorites. That is pretty consistent, I’d say.)

35 % of images are tagged “home”, which means I took them at and around my home. (46 % in 2021). 45 % of all of my 2022 images have at least one of my daughters in them, which further indicates that documenting my family is by far the most important part of my photographic practice.

Last year I got a new camera, the Fujifilm X-E4, which I used for roughly 34 % of my images. The Leica M is still number one at 49 %, the Q accounts for 13 % of photographs taken in 2022. (The remaining 4 % are various cameras I only used for testing, etc.)

I took the most images in May, 2,948 to be exact.

beyond moments

I recently started a new project, where it is my goal to create a photo book with pictures I took over the last five years at WordCamp Europe.

This is part of an ongoing quest to (re)define (and also refine) my photography. There is this urge to create more of it – and not only digitally.

So, because I am really happy with the images I took at beyond tellerrand conference two weeks ago, I went ahead and created a small photo book, which I called beyond moments.

While the aforementioned quest is still ongoing, I know for sure, that I really enjoy documenting events like this. Can’t wait for WordCamp Europe next month!
