Children’s Dreams around the World – Chris de Bode

Being a princess, working as a vet, becoming an actress, swimming with whales as a marine biologist, founding an animal shelter, traveling around the world as a photographer… All these are the dreams I had or still have. Some of them, or at least parts of them, have already come true. Others most likely will ...

Lu Guang

I don’t know if you feel the same way but I realized that I often keep focusing on photography and on photographic inspirations in the western world only. I spend a lot of time in social networks and mainly browsing photo journals to find exceptional photographers, trends or news. Recently I’ve come to the conclusion ...

Alex Bernasconi shows us the world of penguins

For most people Antarctica remains a mystery. Only few of us have been there already or could possibly imagine traveling there one day.

The infamous winning photo of the World Press Photo Award 2017

Every year the Press Photo of the Year receives the World Press Photo Award. It’s not unusual that this particular award has stirred up some controversy. Press photography takes place where events, achievements but also tragedies and catastrophes happen. It’s a fact and logical that not only beautiful things can be seen in the photos. ...

The traces of mankind…

“[we] come from nature.…There is an importance to [having] a certain reverence for what nature is because we are connected to it... If we destroy nature, we destroy ourselves.” – Edward Burtynsky When you think about how little a human-being is compared to the size of our planet it’s only hard to imagine what great ...

Despite the ongoing rainfall and a cloudy, permanently gray sky I decided not to wait much longer for a more varied lighting mood but to grab my camera and get going. After a long break I also took my reliable SIGMA 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HS lens along, which is perfect for such excursions ...
