60-second slices of present // Frankfurt 2013

This year in summer I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days in Frankfurt. Considered Germany’s financial centre and paired with the largest hub-airport of mainland Europe this city should be an interesting place to explore, I assumed. So I prepared and packed my equipment intending to take some longtime exposures there. I … Continue reading

60-second slices of present // London 2013

As part of my ongoing project ”60-second slices of present“ I filled a couple of rolls when I had the opportunity to shoot in London early this year. I have just finished editing down a huge bulk of images to what you now see below. Enjoy and stay tuned for more of this year’s slices … Continue reading

60-second slices of present // Urbi et Orbi // Rome 2013

As mentioned in my previous post I spend Easter time in Rome this year. I had a very particular image in mind I wanted to take – the masses of people gathering on Saint Peter’s Square for Pope Francis’s Urbi et Orbi Message. So this is my selection of shots I took in and around … Continue reading

It always starts with an image in my mind …

At some time early in March this year I felt the urge to get out and capture some collective human motion again. With my longtime exposure project 60-second slices of present in mind and the intention to extend it beyond Berlin I asked myself where to go this time. Inspired by the news reports on … Continue reading

60-second slices of present // Warsaw 2012

2012 was a fruitful year as to continuing my photo project “60-second slices of present”. In my last post on the selection of 60-second shots from Berlin I mentioned that I plan to extend this work with photos from other cities around the world, too. So here’s a start at that: last year in October I spend … Continue reading

60-second slices of present // Berlin 2012

Now that 2013 has just started, I’d like to present a selection of last year’s “60-second slices of present”. This sparse, yet compact selection of works is part of the eponymous ongoing series that I started almost three years ago. It has become a pleasure to reflect on the project’s development since. What, out of … Continue reading

New 60-second slices of present

Some time ago I introduced my idea to a conceptual series I named 60-second slices of present. What had started as an experiment about two years ago has ever since been becoming a long-term photo project. Here comes a selection of last year’s results.

Monotony – booklet publication

Regardless of time or place “monotony” exposes a phenomenon hundreds of thousands of people find themselves in the midst of everyday – commuting. Being accomodated in suburbs – often huge monocultural agglomerations of apartment blocks – their residents need to be on their way to the city centre to earn a living each and every … Continue reading

The fancy pipes of Berlin. Unveiling a mystery.

Some say Berlin is young, hip and artsy. I say it’s funny because it’s got pink pipes. Funky rumors have been spreading just as the pipes themselves do all over the city. What are they? Tube mail, heat pipes or some giant artwork? Why does one often see them running along streets, sneaking around corners, … Continue reading
