Catching up 16—>17 pt. 2

And we’re still in Summer 2016, catching up with some old stuff. With all this stuff happening right now so fast, this is kind of nice to go through some stuff again, take some time, write a little caption for each image. Kind of mesmerizing and calming. Anyway, enjoy.

Checking out a crazy good location for a group exhibition.

Looking down through the floor. This place used to be a boiler house.

Old vs new

The spooky basement

Preparing prints for the exhibtion. (fyi this was late summer ’16)

We build sort of a shed in my mothers garden. Feels good to not touch a pc keyboard for a while.

Improvisation

Since we do not have a backyard were trying to grow some tomatoes on the window ledge. Kinda works

DERBY pictures at Heizhaus. Beautiful room. New investor in 2017. Right about now the building is being torn down i guess.

On a commission with Eva, founder of Der Genussfreund

Martin the cool hazelnut farmer. Also the only one i now know of.

 

Party hard at Heizhaus.

Next job in Rügland, documenting beekeeper Claus and his buddies.

 

Beautiful area.

At the bee house.

Beloved M7.

After all this exhibtion stuff, we definitely needed a few days of vacation. And as ideal germans of course we went to Mallorca.

But not the usual places.

Weird lights at the airport.

Later that year, a bought a Hasselblad 500CM again for a project. The lens unfortunately had a little scratch (right lens), so the seller was so kind and sent me another pristine one to replace it (left lens). Those are your standard 80mm Planars by the way.

Next commission at Bergbrand coffeehouse.

More coming right up!

Catching up 16—>17 pt. 1

Wow. It’s been more than one year since the last post. I have been busy with all kinds of private, study and work related stuff. The next blogs are all about catching up and just writing down all the stuff that has happened until now. (Now being at the point where i just finished my ba thesis with honors, looking to publish my first photobook and about to dive into the ocean of freelance work together with some great study friends.)

But lets start where we left the last time. About one full year ago.

Catching a break.

Portfolio: Paris 2012

A revised series of very old pictures from paris in 2012 can now be found on my website. Some haven’t been published anywhere yet. All film, shot with my beloved Leica M6 and the chunky Kiev 88. Good, innocent times. Check out here

Printing some images for Olaf’s EDITION GRAINAU.


Olaf gave me his Hasselblad to shoot and i shot some B/W rolls at home. But when developing this roll i poured in 260ml (which is the amount of dev i use for 36exp film) instead of 500ml by mistake. Since i dev with Xtol i use to move the tank quite often, so the whole film got developed at least. But as you can see the left side here in this scan was facing up in the tank, not getting any of that sweet Xtol juice when resting between movements. The left side is about 2 stops underexposed. no biggie.
