Back then, in early 2013, i started to visit London and Paris, because i wanted to cover street style photography during Fashion Week. I have some female fashion bloggers in my RSS Feed Reader since a long time and thought, i need to see them in real life. Maybe i hoped to see more than just beautiful people, and not that many clowns.
But soon i realized, this is not what i want anymore. My last time as “indie” photojournalist covering Fashion Week was in Paris early 2014. In late 2013, i have already prepared myself to fold origami cranes before and after the fashion show events of brands like Chanel and Valentino, just to fill the gaps, when nothing is happening.
I researched places where i can sit down to fold a origami crane and documented everything with two cameras for two point of views, to be later combined into a video. I kept doing it, made a lot of them along my way, and this is why the trail of thousand origami cranes began in Paris.
