The Story Behind That Picture: "Believe in yourself"

By: Thorsten Overgaard. December 16, 2010

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Some times I get mails from people that are special. This is one such:

"Dear Thorsten,
The photo I took at your workshop, the one you said could be in a museum, I have had much controversy over. Some say, "It's just a picture of feet." Others, like you, say it is inspiring and makes them think in a dreamy way. Nonetheless I have actually sold enlargements on canvas of this photo.  I named it "You are the Light in Every Step", and did a limited edition of 25.

When I met you I had a Leica Digilux 2 and a Leica Digilux 3, but I was still basically a dSLR shooter with Olympus cameras - That completely changed after your workshop. I now have a Leica M8 and three M-lenses. I still have the Leica Digilux 2 and a Leica Digilux 3, and I also have a Leica D-Lux 5. Suffice it to say, I am loving Leicas.

You have a very subtle way of teaching. Please include me in another workshop. Attached is the finished photograph. Hope all is well with you and your family. Thank you Thorsten!" (D.F.)

I basically don't have muct comment to this, except that the whole point in photographs, art and ideas is that only you as the artist can dream them and see their potential. Few others can see, less believe in the value of something, they can't see in a gallery with a price tag and a well-known name behind. We live in a material world where we can believe cars. Ideas are an entirely different matter. Despite what others say, your ideas can actually make a change.
