Fotoeins Friday: Patience and hope, by Herakut (Wittenberg)

As my taxi weaved through the streets of Wittenberg’s Old Town, the bright yellow caught my eye and I quickly turned my head. I immediately took note of the location and proximity to the hotel; I knew I’d have to come back and see this wall mural again.

The mural is of a girl with big brown eyes and she is surrounded by stars. Her hands are partly open as if she’s just let go of the two small dragons. On the right is the accompanying caption “Sie heissen Geduld und Zuversicht1 und ihr Schicksal liegt in meinen Händen. (They’re called patience and hope, and their fate lies in my hands.).” Created for the Kura 2016 festival in Wittenberg, this beautiful work is by “herakut”, the artist duo of Hera (Jasmin Siddiqui) and Akut (Falk Lehmann).

I wrote about Herakut’s wall mural in Heidelberg for the 2015 Metropolink Festival here.


1 dict.cc and LEO define “Zuversicht” as “trust” or “confidence.”

My thanks to IMG- and Sachsen-Anhalt-Tourismus, the city of Wittenberg, and the Luther Hotel for their patronage and access to facilities. I made the photo above on 30 October 2016 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/500s, f/11, ISO1000, and 70mm focal-length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-9hB. IMG- and Sachsen-Anhalt-Tourismus supported my visit to the German federal state of Saxony-Anhalt from 25 October to 3 November 2016 inclusive.
