Entry Description

I couldn't sleep on a flight from Hong Kong to Germany and we supposed to have the blinds closed for comfort reason but I couldn't resist to have a sneak from time to time. As the sun was about to rise and I realised we are above the Himalaya I had to open the blinds fully. I felt people angry staring at me as their movie screens faded and some wanted to sleep but I had to overcome this feeling of guild to take this amazing shots. Sorry for the inconvenience.

About Photographer

Frank experienced life in different parts of the world. Born and raised in a small town on the idyllic coast of the Baltic Sea in East Germany, he grew up in a socialist environment. His childhood and adolescence were very safe and protected, however he longed for freedom as citizens were not allowed to travel non-socialist countries. Frank suffered with the knowledge that he would never see the vast extent of the Grand Canyon, the colourful display of the Northern Lights or the setting sun over the majestic dunes of the Sahara. But then, very unexpectedly, things changed. The German wall came down and a completely different world presented itself. All of a sudden the whole world was open to be explored. This was when Frank first came into touch with photography. He borrowed two rolls of film and the family SLR to explore the world and discovered photography as his true passion. In years of self-study, living in Italy, the UK, Spain and Hong Kong he developed his photography skills to a professional level. It was during his time in Spain when he also started working on time-lapse projects and studied web development. The wanderlust never released its grip on Frank and it has become an essential part of his art. He now lives and works as a photographer and web designer in Hong Kong.
