Review of Fotomarathon Bremen 2019

On Saturday morning the 7th of September started a new Bremer Fotomarathon – it was my first time that I attended one. I was a bit nervous. As I saw the first topics on the card – you get 3 times 3 topics during 9 hours the whole day, so, as I saw the first card with topics on it, I wanted to go home. 

The topics were very broad, unprecise in my point of view – I had no idea how to start. Thank go I had a good friend on my side. First action was to drink a cappuccino, reflect the topics and start a discussion of how to solve these exercises. 

More or less this behavoiur went on and on the whole day. Getting cards with 3 topics or mottos on it, reflect during drinking coffee or eating and then try to make the best out of the situation in which we were. You have deal with the city quarter in which we were, to find the best location, to creat an idea with a kind of new photographical aspect – and all this action in a time box, about one hour per topic. Which sounds plenty of time but if you keep the combination of solving the exercise, combined with a creative aspect within the streets you walked trough … wow, a hard job for a saturday 😉 

Did I win? No.

Does this matter? Not at all, because it was a lot of creative-time-boxed-work with a good friend of mine, which I don’t want to miss.

Do I want to attend next time? I think so!
