My name is Joerg Thamer and due to technical difficulties I am exactly one week late to the party. What can I say, about the middle of May I got an invitation to join Monochromia, thanks Joe for the vote of confidence. It is both an honor and a pleasure for me to be part of this new photoblog.
I was born and raised in Hessen, Germany a village along the banks of the river Lahn and I still live there to this day. I have been running around with a camera since I was a little child. I was in charge of carrying my fathers Leica rangefinder around. From my early twenties on, I used photography as a tool to capture things I needed for my profession as a illustrator. Over the years a huge stockpile of photos were raised, mostly Diapos, and about 5 years ago I decided to clean up this “mess”.
What is left of them you can see (at least those I want to share), as well as my current images at this link to my site –
