MICHAEL LANGE: I had no idea…
JC: Who or what is inspiring you at the moment?
ML: The constant change of nature - That I never know if I will catch it - When I caught it.
JC: What are you up to right now?
ML: Finishing editing my latest project Wetlands after being in the field for two months.
JC: Have you had mentors along the way?
ML: Discipline and persistance. No forgetting my dear deceased zen teacher Joko Beck.
JC: Where are you based right now and how is it shaping you?
ML: In Hamburg, Germany: It is a trading town which gives space to focus and work. The huge deep-sea port intertwined with the city is a daily inspiration - I truly love it.
JC: One piece of advice to photography graduates?
ML: Persistance, persistance, persistance!
JC: Is it important to you to be a part of a creative community?
ML: Yeah it´s important and inspiring - to see good work from other photographers gives me strength. For instance the Sochi Project from Hornstra/Bruggen, Carolyn Drake´s Two Rivers, The Presence from Paul Graham - all the effort and energy put in these projects really kicks!
