Finding Vivian Maier

Hey guys, Almost two years ago I told you about a very special photographer whose entire work was only found after her death. She didn’t see any of her photos published in her lifetime. Only after she died in 2009, her 1,200 undeveloped film rolls from her estate were sold by auction and thus they ...

The “Nikon Small World“ Competition

We all know that on this planet and in this universe there are so many things we have absolutely no clue about. Outer space, although a lot has already been discovered, still remains a mystery for mankind and the depths of the oceans have barely been explored. But we don’t even need to go that ...

GDPR and its impact on photography

  The GDPR makes life difficult. Unfortunately, photographers are not excluded. Above all, those who photograph people in their pictures, have to make some thoughts on data protection due to the GDPR. We clarify today and summarized the most important information in a compact form. The right to one’s own image Since the GDPR came ...

An autumn stroll in Ireland’s capital

“Cozy like a pub, hospitable like a village,” I could read before my departure on some websites as I was looking for some travel inspiration. I wasn’t quite able to imagine what that meant. Shortly after my arrival it became quite obvious to me, though. Dublin is a wonderful city which, despite its size, has ...

Loving Vincent

In my last article I told you about Wolfgang Beltracchi and the art of forgery. That’s how I got inspired by paintings again and so I visited the Albertina yesterday, one of my favorite museums in Vienna, and also watched my favorite movie of the last Oscar Awards. I regret that this movie was “only” ...

Daguerreotypy

The Daguerrotype process has its origins in 19th century France. Joseph Niépce was the inventor of photography. However, French painter Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre (18 November 1797 – 10 July 1851) with his particular photographic process made it practical and popular. On 19 August 1839 the first Daguerrotype portrait was created. This so-called “light-based portraiture” ...

The art of forgery

Today I don’t want to tell you something about photography but remain in the field of art. Photography is my greatest passion indeed, but I still keep looking beyond, right into many other exciting fields of the creative and artistic world. I love old Renaissance painting, conceptual sculptures in Dadaism or abstract paintings in Cubism. ...

More details about the best Press Photos of the Year

Every year the World Press Photo exhibit is an obligatory date for me. This event is always worth to follow and take a closer look at. The “World Press Photo Awards” are a renowned photo competition. The winning picture, the “World Press Photo of the Year”, will be awarded a sum of 10,000 Euros. A ...

Erika Zolli – Geometric Variants

Symmetry, geometry and the play with lines and shapes in photography have always fascinated me. Thus it’s not really surprising that as I looked at the photos of Erika Zolli’s project “Geometric Variants” for the first time I was stunned right away. In her photos this photographer creates new worlds and realities. In a combination ...

Where this journey took me…

Hey guys, In one of my last articles, in which I told you my thoughts about the SIGMA 85mm F.14 DG HSM Art, you could also see some sample images which apparently hadn’t been taken in our area. So far, however, I haven’t told you where that journey took me. I wanted to wait until ...
