All those happy people

I took the photo almost 6 years ago in Kapadokya. It’s so cliché I had to laugh out loud …

Oto Ceyhun

On the first day I met Ersin he had to go to get his russian Lada checked at a repair shop outside of Kars. Since I didn‘t have much else to do I joined him. The guys at the workshop didn‘t mind me taking photos. In fact, they even asked to get their pictures taken. It was obviously nothing compared to the car dealers in Europe. While the first thing they do is plug your car into a computer to check for errors in Turkey they still just use pure manpower to fix any problem. And problems could be small like in Ersin’s case or bigger like the crashed car outside that was being rebuilt out of 5 different cars. Before he started the mechanic lit up his cigarette with the blow-torch that he used for welding.

brotlose Kunst?

brotlose Kunst?

brotlose Kunst refers to art not being able to feed the artist … I shot the photo at the C.A.R. (contemporary Art Ruhr) fair in Essen a few weeks ago. The fair was all about selling artworks and I would say most of the pieces were more decorative than anything else, so perfectly made for the sense to sell it for a doctor or a lawyers office, in that sense I suppose it is nourishing the artist — at least to some degree … I wasn‘t too excited about the fair but I like the photo :) .

La Défense

La Défense

La Défense is a large area of skyscrapers mainly housing offices in the north west of Paris. In the night it really appears like a mountain range or an island sticking out of the lit sea of houses.

I really don‘t know whether a russian masseur is what I need – somehow rather makes me think of massacring … ;)

Plan F – second round!



Such a nice song from SBTRKT I just stumbled across … it reminds me a lot of some songs from Four Tet or Boards of Canada.

The song is called atomic peace

And some more music right away … Bonobo recently released a new album called The North Borders and it’s great!

The flood

About 1,5 months ago Halle and many other towns and villages have been severely flooded … Fortunately enough with the big help of the inhabitants damage wasn‘t as bad as it could‘ve been.

Tough life

Sabine told me that she believes this photo is basically the allegory for our studies … Well it’s definitely a tough life. Have you tried taking a photo while not dropping your ice cream?

The photo was taken in a small town near Arles while we were on excursion.

street signs

I‘ve always been a big fan of street signage – obviously also the rather „strange“ one …

Arles in Black

Last week I had the great pleasure to visit Arles and the famous „Rencontres d‘Arles“ photo festival. The city was wonderful, the photo festival amazing and the weather perfect. So besides seeing many of the most recent works of the worlds most famous photographers we could spend some time relaxing and enjoying the Provence sun.
I took a great ton of photos and this is just a start – I guess I will post more in the near future. For now just a couple of black and white shots as this years theme of the festival was „Arles in Black“…

Great! This Way …
