Photographs from The Canadian Gummi Bear Edition

The Canadian Gummi Bear Edition - fotografie #1

Almost exactly four years ago I received an email from Canada in which Dina, very kind and creative woman, asked me if I would photograph her favorite Gummi Bears the way I just had done the ones from Germany. Of course I agreed and about a week later I found a package in the mail with a Canadian post stamp and the amazingly shaped and delicious Gummies in it...

At first however, before I even mounted a lens to my camera, I, in order for the photographs to be more personal, had to get to know my new models better. They were great listeners, however didn’t talk much. So I had to take different measures...

After I ate about a half of them in name of the ‘creative process’ we were ready to work together. And these are the photographs that were made.
