Home/ / Lift Me Up

For the 10th anniversary of the Dr Klown organization here in Malta, I photographed 26 Clown Doctors all living, working and clowning on the Maltese Islands.

Clowning is a transforming process pulling children, adolescents, adults, and elderly – so people of all generations, colors, and backgrounds- out of their current situation to uplift and leave all worries for at least a little time behind. It opens space to new perspectives and ideas to carry on more released and more inspired.

Each Clown is psychologically and artistically trained to entertain children in the hospital. To meet and bring patients and everybody else to a place of ease and joyfulness requires a lot of training, discipline, and the deep desire to get there. Clown Doctors is a global movement with known organizations in 70 countries worldwide, with a clear focus on spreading joy and happiness in the world.

One of my fundamental convictions is that life is not primarily about ourselves, our dreams, and our interests, but more about how we serve others and how we touch all things in life to live and spread love and positivity. The other way around, people get trapped very quickly in the circle of selfishness, greed, and egoism that does nothing else than leading to self-destructive systems and inner dark and emptiness.
We are all connected, and everything in and around us is made of energy—including our thoughts, talks, and deeds. So what we choose to think, say, and do finally creates our second-to-second, day-by-day, year-by-year, and decade-by-decade reality. At the end of our lives, it will be what we really have been and what we leave behind, not the status of our birth, the positions we achieved, or the numbers on our bank account.
Albert Einstein said, “Everything is Energy, and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequencies of the reality you want, and you cannot but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”
Let’s vibe high and help and inspire others!
