The story behind the image
It’s the time before Christmas when I get into a sad mood, because my mother died on the 22nd December 2004 at the age of just 62.
Here’s another shot of her that I found in the family archive, captured in 1964 by Photo Gebhardt, one of the popular studio photographers in Kiel, Germany, at the time.
1964 was probably the best time for her. Young and free, beautiful and energetic – determined to make her way through the jungle called life. 1964 was also the year before I was born, which threw her into really uncharted territory but she did manage these challenges, too.
This is how I like to remember her, and I thank the photographer for this image.
