ALONG COMES MARY by Herbert Ahnen and Marie Schmidt

What if a young woman, who can no longer work because of her depression, would like to stand in front of the camera for a change … and is recommended by her friend to a photographer who also suffers from depression … and both realize at the first shoot that photography can be so much more than just taking pictures? Photography as therapy? A photo project in 14 shootings.

Herbert Ahnen, hobby photographer, and Marie Schmidt, hobby model, have been working on their book project ALONG COMES MARY for over a year. The content is about “photography as therapy”, because both suffer from depression. So in this book you can observe their common path with the illness and also read corresponding texts containing personal impressions of their time together.
