We all can laugh, but we do it too rarely! Laughing is great and can do so much.

Laughter relaxes when we are stressed.

Laughter calms down when we are scared.

Laughter connects us with others.

Every time we laugh, a lot of great things happen inside us. One of them is an immediate stress reduction. When we laugh together with others, which we do about 30 times more often than when by ourselves, then it creates a real connection between those who laugh together and even those who „only“ observe. And if the observer are open minded and bold, they let them infect and laugh with them! In most cases this happens automatically. Fortunately! Every time we sense someone laughing, the subconscious will identify it as such. That’s because we all have a so called „laugh detector“. When it registers a laugh it instantly triggers another one within us, whether we like it or not. Then it’s up to us how much we join in and how much we laugh with one another, and so allow the magic of the fantastic experience of an authentic laughter to happen.
My portrait series „LAUGHING OUT LOUD“ shows people in this exact moment of losing control and blooming in a wonderful instant of laughter. If you take a closer look you may too become infected. And even if it only causes an inner smile, in any case it is a good feeling.
