My name is Oliver Grimm and I take pictures—all the time.
What are you doing now, exactly? And why is that?
It really got me. Late it got me. In my forties: I take pictures. Always. My family's getting very annoyed. That's why I'm going out on the streets. That's where I find my motifs. Uninhibited and unvarnished.
I'll shoot anything that catches my eye. Humans. And things. And people who look like things. And things that could be people. I do this digitally. And with real film. And cameras, which the older ones (Pardon) among you still know: Nikons, Minoltas, Voigtländers, Yashicas etc. In the meantime, I've even started to develop my own black-and-white films.
But that's not all...
What am I supposed to invest my money on?
You can see my pictures for free on the net - here and here and here and here. Because I don't want to do this for myself anymore. In the end, it's also about someone else seeing what I saw. Sometimes I write blog posts about photography, the why and the how.
With a little financial support, I can experiment, practice, grow and improve my website.
I have many wishes: I want to become better. I would like to take photos in places other than Berlin. I would like to scan on a really good scanner (my is... well, it doesn't matter). I would like to shoot medium format. I want to do an exhibition. I want to release a zine. I want to try new cameras. I would like to take part in one or two paid contests
Your money—and that really doesn't have to be much —makes you a part of my pictures. With every Click. Click. Click.
