Ione means Island

When she told me the meaning of her name something warm hit my chest and I thought of a passage from my favourite book “The History of Love”:

“Why do people always get named after dead people? If they have to be named after anything at all, why can’t it be things, which have more permanence, like the sky or the sea, or even ideas, which never really die, not even bad ones?”

Ione is a remarkable human. She fascinates me. She has a soft nature. A gentle soul. Then you get to know her and you can tell pretty quickly, the strength of her independent spirit.

This is Ione. And this was just a shoot of love really.

    I can hardly find words how beautifully you captured this lovely woman. It seems I can feel what you felt when you two did this shooting. Unbelievable great!

    Oh I hoped so! As a photographer I always hope people feel something when they see my work. Thanks for saying that!

    Ich versuche es die ganze Zeit auf Englisch, jetzt habe ich es aufgegeben und schreibe es auf Deutsch: Die Fotos sind toll, die Fotografin begabt, das Model natürlich und schön, die Kulisse auch.

    Gorgeous work. I love this set of images. Images with movement and soul in them – my favourite <3
