When I published an explanation about the purpose of Berlin’s pink pipes in the beginning of last year, little did I know this was a question so many people were keen to find out. The post went viral through several blogs, facebook and twitter. Then the BBC decided to do a little reportage on the … Continue reading

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

May Day 2013

May Day march 2013.

On May 1st this year Frank, Philipp and I joined the Maifest and had a nice time walking the streets of Kreuzberg together. Just as last year once again the folklore event was a great opportunity to do some street photography. Enjoy a selection of pictures I took this year:  

60-second slices of present // Rome 2013

As mentioned at the beginning of the year, I intended to take the “60-second slices of present”-project further and beyond the city of Berlin where it all had started some three years ago. I am surprised, how the project has been developing since. The fact I always limit myself to the exact same capturing method … Continue reading

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

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

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

Berlin, Straße des 17. Juni

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

Warszawa Grotesque

Polski-Street-Warsaw

I always wondered what that city at the other end of the Berlin-Warszawa-Express line would be like. Time to find out, I decided and booked a ticket. I arrived in Warszawa on a sunny day in September at noon. I wandered the streets of the Polish capital for half that day and finally came across … Continue reading
