What I love about photography is bringing my inner eye to the outer world, saving my memories on the phone, the laptop and later on my walls. I travel because I love to catch the atmosphere and perfect moments with my camera. My latest stop was Venice, one of the most beautiful cities in Italy - at least in my opinion. My favourite Italian city is and forever will be Rome, but the great and special thing I love about Venice is the water. Water everywhere. Cities surrounded by water like Hamburg, Amsterdam or Copenhagen simply have. a totally different flair than, well, just dry cities.
From my home town, Klagenfurt in the south of Austria, Venice is easily reachable by car within three hours. As a little update, I am currently living at home due to a clinical traineeship. From my Instragram you probably know that I have been studying Medicine in Munich for almost four years now. More than half way through - I know, that's scary. I still have so much ahead, so many more decisions to make, so many more exams to pass. But what I know is that I do what I love and what makes me happy. And that keeps me moving forward. Working in a hospital right now proves me that Medicine is my passion and something I will practice until I am old and wrinkly.
However, photography and the Instagram world satisfy my need to be creative, modish and the creator of my own content. The medical world can be so serious, challenging and consumpting that turning my head off and just thinking about which picture I could create next is like a spa treatment. This may sound a little bit strange, but for me it is the only way to a balanced and happy life, enjoying one day more than the other.
Many of you always ask for more information about myself, but the question is - what is more? Don't pictures speak for themselves? The answer is no. Pictures, and especially those posted on Instagram, are the attempt to portray oneself from the best side, but they don't portray reality. I may wear those clothes, I may eat good food, I may have abs directly after my gym sessions. But that's not the case 24/7. Right now, I spend most of my time holding hooks in many surgeries a day - no food, no fashion, no Instragram. What I want to say is that for a girl not fully using Instagram as a big profit-making business, those pictures are not my reality.
I am not dependent on Instagram because I need money from cooperations, likes or more and more followers, but because Instagram and the production of my photos release my creative soul at least a few hours a day and lighten my exhausting way to my future job, being a doctor.
Stay in the real reality. Best wishes and XOXO
