ELEPHANT

Bibi the elephant was captured in Africa when she was still young. The mental drama from witnessing the death of her whole flock is still influencing her each day in the zoo of Halle. Norman is her zookeeper and has a deep understanding and respect for Bibi and the other elephants. He has a few tattoos of elephants on his body.

CHEMISTRY

A palm tree, a bar, a drink and a beach. Being in the City of Tel Aviv you almost forget that you are walking inside a bubble.

EVENING WALK

In the fading daylight stood this weird building, illuminating everything around. I don’t know what it is. I’m still waiting for that whisper in my ear to tell me what it could be.

childhood memories

For the fist time in years I went home for New Years Eve. When I was a kid, this spot on the hill close to my home had a little forest on top of it. This is the first time that the ouster appearance of my hometown doesn’t match with my childhood memories anymore.

Innsbruck, nordkette

We had a beautiful gathering with friends in Innsbruck, Austria at the end of 2016. On the last day of the year, we went up to Nordkette, a mountain close by. While enjoying the view and having a few beers, we were surprised by the lack of snow at that time of the year.

Landerer & Company

In beginning of 2016 my friend Felix Landerer asked me to photograph his squad of dancers for an upcoming show. The choreographer works together with dancers from all over the world, like China, Italy, Canada and the Netherlands.

I had the idea of creating an atmosphere which is rather quiet than powerful and dynamic. By limiting the amount of light, I could just focus on the bodies during a moment of standstill, while peaking their movements.

Weekly Update #8

NEO RAUCH

It was one of these days when you don’t expect much of your day in the office. You edit your images, send files, talk to colleagues and have a coffee. Everyone who worked in this kind of environment knows, that editors spend most of their time calling people. Coincidentally I listened to a conversation concerning a story about Neo Rauch, one of Germany’s highly renown present painters. I immediately joined that conversation and asked if I can take his portrait.
One week later, I sat in a car from Berlin down to Leipzig on my way to witness Mr. Rauch in his seemingly inaccessibly studio. It was the day after the American elections and we ended up talking about politics quite heavily. After a while we needed a break from this topic and I started to take his portrait.

90 Seconds

 

I have always been fascinated by male societies, likely because I don't understand them. I spent one evening at the fights and what struck me most wasn't the physical strength nor the violence, but the obvious vulnerability almost all of the fighters displayed. They appeared like they were stuck in an idea of toughness which they couldn't fully embrace. This is Viktor Dell about to enter the cage, he lost after about 90 seconds due to a knock-out. Two guys mopped his blood off the floor and the next fight commenced.

BELIEF

 

The signs of religion are everywhere you look in Israel. In Jerusalem of course, a holy place for many religions. But also in the metropol Tel Aviv. Painted on the wall of a shop.
