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.

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.

Okay, to be honest it’s been a bit quiet and dusty in here recently. Now here is a little update on what has been and what is going on behind the scenes. A couple of weeks ago I was involved in an accident. I took away injuries on both arms, which will take until the … Continue reading
