It's a lesson in solitude and contemplation - captured in amazing images by the director Brian Bolster, but also by the photographs Steiguer has taken.

It is a great pleasure to see a mentally mature person and a beautiful photographer.
Brian Bolster has captured the essence of her story beautifully as well.
Thank you for sharing the link Howard!

Melancholy is an under appreciated emotion.
Thanks for the link. I enjoyed it.

More Dyxumer, less photographer.

Thanks for sharing this link Howard, very worthwhile watching. I found the story and background of Alexandra very interesting, her photo's are of a classic beauty and the filming has a photographic quality as well. Items in the frame move but the frames are static giving a very quiet and attractive atmosphere while watching it. No zooming or panning, it really fits the story well.

It was calming and thought-provoking to see somebody being alone for such a period and producing nice photos along the way
It was all well filmed with the long shots.
Thanks for the link
