I really don’t know how much sense it makes to post these mammoth blog posts. It took me about an hour to scroll through, looking at each photo and reading the captions. I just did the test. So when I publish this one and I’m reading a comment in less than an hour, I know you were cheating. Seriously… If you’re really interested, probably because you’re featured in here or just a regular crazy person, you should know that it will take you an hour if you pay attention.  bon voyage!

  1. First time commenting here! Regular reader the blog and love it! Gone through all the photos in this post and first comment!

    Cheers! :D

  2. Hey Severin,

    natürlich sind einstündige Blogposts von dir nicht zu lang, sondern gerade lang genug.

  5. Great photos!

    Thanks for posting – I don’t mind reading/watching long posts as it’s always a wonderful journey.

    I love your b&w street photos but this time I’m really surprised how good those color photos are and different from your usual work.
    I my opinion color film is just perfect for the Mexico and South America… (is it Portra ?)

    I know that it takes a lot of work and time, but I will anxiously wait for the next post…

  6. Always a pleasure reading your posts! Never been to Mexico and I’ll likely never will but seeing your photos makes me feel like I was there too. Mazunte also looks incredible.

  7. Sehr gelungen! Habe gedacht Dein neues Blog wird nie kommen! Die Rolleiflex Bilder sind absolut erste Sahne. Mag die Geschichte, wie ich sehe die Luna ist auch wieder da :)

  8. Alter Severin,

    was für ein grandioses Bombardement an Fotos. Die Yoga Portraits und das Third Eye Foto haben mir am allermeisten gefallen.

    Mach weiter so, es ist soooooooooooo ein Genuß deine Blog-Einträge zu lesen !

  9. So awesome. Very much enjoyed this one. Makes me want to go to Mexico (again).

    I do like the b/w shots, too, but I must say, the Rolleiflex colour shots in this post are truly spectacular!

    Thanks for sharing, mate!

  10. Severin – I’ve followed your blog for years now … when I see you’ve posted something new I settle in with my coffee and make my leisurely way through what I know will be an inspiring set of photos, usually in the service of another of your fascinating journeys. There is always something of joy here but, more importantly, there is truthfulness and a sense of a life being lived in real- time. Thanks for the providing a peek into this journey. If you’re ever in Chicago send me a note…. Daniel S.

  11. Wow, those pictures of the girl doing Yoga looks awesome.

    Either way, keep posting on your blog. You post has always been long and interesting anyway. :)

  12. Hi Severin,

    The pics you took in Puerto Escondido is really something. Maybe because you shot in color or maybe because of the 6×6 format or maybe both; it felt surreal and my brain start visualizing the surrounding whilst going through the photos. Sunrise and sunset were beautifully captured, portrait of Natasha and yogi transient calmness into my mind too.

    Thanks for the killer effort to post these pics.

  13. Nice to see your post, as always. I started following your blog soon after I saw your photos in “Street Photography for the Purist” book. There are not so much really interesting blogs to see couse of instagram, social networks and other shit, so it really interesting to read your blog. And nice combo of street, portrait and some nature-geometric-abstract photos in this post.

    Greetings from Moscow!

  14. I’m here for the voyage. Been coming here since 2013 I think. Each blog drop is like a movie. I sit with a drink and spend the night watching it. There is no place like this elsewhere online

  16. Great blog post. Could you imagine a blog with actual photos taken by the author. In this day and age, a rare find. I will return for more.

  18. Life would look a bit better when you shoot in color. Doesnt change the fact that it actually pretty suck though.

  19. The major problem I have with this massive dose of pictures is the wide range of quality. You have some very good photos mixed in some very mediocre snapshots, and frankly I didn’t have the patience to flog through so many mediocre pictures to find the really good ones. I may have gotten through 1/3 to 1/2 of the pictures before I quit. The poor shots might stick in the the mind more than the good shots and these poorer ones bring down the whole collection.
    ***So why don’t you edit out the mediocre snapshots and let your good shots shine?***
    The lesser problem, but one that irritates, is that you pair medicre pictures with clever captions that try to explain the merits of the picture or the reason you took the picture. I would not add these captions as it seems to be a poor attempt to redeem a mediocre picture, and with the better pictures, it kind of insults the intelligence or imagination of the viewer.
    ***Show your good pictures and give the viewer room to discover things in the picture and interpret it according to their own imagination and intelligence.***

  20. Severin,

    I’ve read and re-read this mother of all blog posts…but, I’m hankering for an update.
    Your fan club is ready and waiting.
    It’s time!
    Love the work as always of course but these long pauses can be hard on us…don’t make me start back at 2008 and work forward again. ;)
    In solidarity to the emulsion.
