I made my first black and white photograph when I was a little boy. I used an old AGFA Box 44 camera that I received from my grandfather.  One of the subjects on my first film roll was a meadow just before the harvest of the hay. The camera has an upper viewer and I was holding it not much higher than the long grass in the meadow.

When I received the prints, I went trough them together with my uncle Walter, a friend of my parents and an enthousiast filmer and photographer. He drew my attention to the photo of the meadow and its striking dynamic pattern of the grass stem, resulting from the low point of view of the camera.

That was my first lesson in photography and I never forgot it.
