I find it fascinating that in different languages there are sometimes single words for topics or concepts that in other languages have to be explained with many words. And when…

Not important…

May 21, 2019 |

That strange feeling that everything I write has to be somehow important, that every image I take has to be ‘special’, that every painting I make needs to convey a…

March 15, 2019 |

When deciding about my goals for this year there was one thing above all that my soul was aching for…something that I had in a way forbidden myself to dream…

Freeing my intuition…

By Isabel / October 23, 2018 /

Practicalities, gear and film choices, project planning and business expectations were filling my mind and I could not hear my artistic heart anymore. Had it stopped beating? I thought that planning projects was expected. I thought it was sufficient to let my intuition choose the lens of the day or the film for tomorrow. When…

At the crossroads…

By Isabel / September 21, 2018 /

I noticed this morning that I seem to feel a need to write mainly when I am feeling ‘dark’ so I would like to apologize to all of you who follow this blog. Be assured that it only reflects a small part of who I am – but hopefully more of that on a brighter…

Please press start if you would like to hear me read the story.   She opened her eyes. How did she get here? Where was here? She knew she had been looking for something important, something she could not remember because she had lost it a long time ago – a lifetime ago. There was…

Press the start button if you would like to hear me read the story. You probably need to turn the volume down 😉   She woke up early again and looked out of the window of the little lighthouse-keeper‘s cabin. The lighthouse was touched by the first rays of sun, a bright blue sky, two…

By Isabel / June 25, 2018 /

(Please press the play button if you would like to hear me read this blog post)    When I created the presentation for my talk at the Connected 2018 exhibition in the UK in April this year I spent quite some time reflecting about my journey into photography. I ‚only’ had an hour during the…

The Birth of a Project…

By Isabel / June 18, 2018 /

This morning I woke with a thought filling my whole being, my head, my soul, my heart… Transition This has never happened before and I don’t yet know where it will end but I feel very strongly that I need to find a way to create images and words to describe it. Usually my stories…

Aphantasia but lots of fantasy…

By Isabel / June 14, 2018 /

On the weekend I talked to a friend on Twitter about Aphantasia. I had never heard of it before and maybe that was actually good… Here you can find an article about Aphantasia which also includes a test – https://www.bbc.com/news/health-34039054 So, guess what, according to the test I do have Aphantasia. It did not surprise me…

Haiku to the rescue!

By Isabel / June 9, 2018 /

In my last blog post I shared with you how I had jeopardized my own creativity by imposing rules on my work. This time I would like to tell you a bit more about what helped me to overcome this creative block and other thoughts around the topic which seems to connect with so many…

I bet you thought you would have to wait some months now until the next blog post…but no, it is already here! No need to worry though that there will be a blog post every day – that would be too much for anyone I feel but neither will there be a fixed schedule. In…

Reflections…

By Isabel / June 6, 2018 /

Little did I know that writing the blog post about ’Finding my Focus’ beginning of the year would result in a long phase of deep reflections which basically lasted until 2 weeks ago. I had been so sure that I had it all figured out that I was not really prepared for that. There wasn’t…

A lot of things are happening…

By Isabel / May 28, 2018 /

and one of them is that I am going to merge my websites www.isabelcurdes.com and www.changeyourview.dk into one site which means www.changeyourview.dk will no longer be available. This will happen over the next few days so both sites will be down. There will also be more regular blogposts, new images for my portfolio, more selections…

Winter…

By Isabel / March 21, 2018 /

This is my farewell to the winter…it has been a prickly one 😉 …where I learned a lot of things I did not expect to learn. The most important learning was that even if you are self-employed and love your ‘work’ (passion), it does not make you invincible – or maybe it even makes you…

Fear

By Isabel / January 31, 2018 /

The last few weeks have been a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Maybe it is the time of the year with the long dark nights and the grey days or maybe it is just me… Now that I cannot distract myself anymore with equipment choices or decisions about what I want to focus on (see my…

Finding my focus (all puns intended ;-))

By Isabel / January 17, 2018 /

One of my first blog posts was about “focusing until it feels right” and while this was about focusing my cameras I have found out over the last few weeks that it also applies to my creative, business and ‘social’ life. During the last two years after I had quit my old job and started…

The book that will not be published…

By Isabel / January 11, 2018 /

The last two months have been full of decisions for me – some easy, others hard and took a while but the decluttering of my life was not done after the house was ‚clean‘… This was one of the harder decisions but I feel that it was the right one after all. This is a…

More or less?

By Isabel / October 3, 2017 /

A few weeks ago I noticed that I was becoming less and less creative. I did not want to get out anymore to make pictures, did not want to work on my book ideas, no interest in reading and learning…that was really bad. So I did what I always do – I analysed the situation…

Metamorphosis

By Isabel / August 29, 2017 /

I was overwhelmed by the positive response I got on my last blog post. Thank you all so much for your kind words and for sharing with me your own stories. I often find it easier to put my feelings and dreams into poems and pictures than into “plain text”. It gives me more room…
