The world-renowned german photographer Robert Lebeck openend his exibition in the Lumas Gallery in Düsseldorf on 2011-03-18. I had the opportunity to join this event and was very pleased by the behaving of this man. Although he was the center of the evening he was withdrawn and unassuming. He was also very friendly and humorous. When I had the chance to have a conversation with Lebeck I shaped the hypothesis that his behaving would have helped to get access to people when performing his profession as a photo journalist. He told me that he had never thought about when he was doing the job but could agree with the consideration.

Lebecks photographs show that once he had creeped up on somebody on velvet praws he was able to catch the moment with his argus-eyes. See the website of Robert Lebeck for some examples or a brief study. I looked at the evening not only as a visit but as a training in photo jorunalism too. So I took a lot of frames of Lebeck acting on this stage and trying to show his friendlyness and humor. There were three or four more photographers who besieged him the whole evening and there were a lot of guests with their point-an-shoot-cameras too but Lebeck was not disturbed in his serenity. I am very thankful for this.
