On a warm spring day I visited the jewellery artist Juliane Noack in her workshop. She was working on a series of animal masks that she bent from thin copper sheets. In order to warm up with the photo situation, she suggested taking some pictures while she continued working. In addition to the actual portrait, I made a series of photographs that document Juliane’s artistic activity.
Barely two years later, this shot suddenly became a picture of remembrance. Juliane Noack was on board the Germanwings flight that crashed over the French Alps in March 2015.
In retrospect, it is something special that not only the portrait can be used to commemorate Juliane, but also the photos, which were taken unplannedly along the way and which show her immersed in her artistic work.
