Cornelia Schmidt Photographer
Acceptance, Empowerment, Creativity
Photographer Cornelia Schmidt portrays stories in her project “Just People” about everyday people. They are all naked as far as not wearing clothing, but their passions are shining strongly through imagery. Cornelia’s keywords are humour, respect and incredibly beautiful. The texts and photographs complement each other in telling a story about the magic of the individual, at the same time as they leave a lot of space for the viewer’s reflections.
Just People is an original concept by

We’re all born with a body, and each of us is entirely original and unique. The body you have is best suited to you and your needs. It doesn’t matter if you are tall, short, skinny, fat or if you don’t have arms and legs. All that matters is feeling love and gratitude to your body for being just the way it is. Nobody is perfect; we all face different obstacles in life. Once you get to know your body and love it, it will continue to play with you. Stop comparing yourself with others and begin to list en inwards, to your needs and your dreams, because that’s when your body and soul will live together optimally. Show your strength and don’t forget that you are UNIQUE! Maria, Italy/Sweden
Hand in hand with life
Life can be or can appear like a giant whom you can’t shake your hand due to the distance to his hand. But even if we can’t find comprehensive answers, continue walking, with faith, giving the world the best of yourself. Step by step the day will come where you will walk, without noticing it, hand in hand with Life. Paolo, Italy
Am I happy? Ask me.
The smile you regain, recognize and accept. Endometriosis can become invalidating and to coexist with a disability isn’t easy but everything is possible. I started dancing again on my wheels and I came back to myself, free and alive. Chiara, Italy
It’s only skin deep.
Our daughter slept in a shawl wrapped around a sling outside the post office. An elderly woman was standing there. She looked, sniffed, and said: ”Poor child, growing up with a father like you.” Our appearance says nothing about our parenting abilities. We want to give our children all the intimacy, security, and love they need to become strong individuals who dare to be themselves. We hope that they w ill grow up to be critically thinking beings, and, if necessary, that they will stand up for themselves and for others, even if that means standing alone. Spartacus, Eddie, Caja, Carla, Sweden
Being married to the one you love is an incredible feeling! Respect each other and enjoy love, life doesn't need to be harder than that! Niklas & Peter, Sweden
Ego amo me
Beauty is in the eyes and heart of the observer. Love who you are - nobody else will ever be like you. If you are fine with your own body and your own soul, you will also feel better around others. Since I have learned to love myself, I love to live more every second of every day. There is no good way of living or bad way of living; there is only living with your eyes and your heart. Claudia, Italy
Ecological farmers: happiness, freedom, passion, rurality. Poets of mother Earth. People that love good food, plant trees and know the winds. Giordano, Rosa, Luigi, Giuseppe, Mimma, Valter, Matteo, Alfredo , Italy
To learn and create music you need time, focus and discipline. By practicing something many times, again and again slowly you start to see the beauty in it. And there is nothing like the feeling you get from playing a good music piece, when you know it by heart, when you become part of it. At that point you are free to relax and ride on the wave of music. Adrian, Sweden
