Dancing with provocation – Oliviero Toscani

Squandering huge amounts of money, lies, crimes against intelligence, social uselessness, secret seduction, glorification of stupidity, marginalization and racism, crimes against the freedom of speech, crimes against inner peace, crimes against creativity and unscrupulous exploitation. All this is of what Italian photographer Oliviero Toscani accused the advertising industry in his counteroffensive. I clearly remember the ...

Sometimes staying inside feels just better…

Autumn has finally arrived: the chilly wind, some rain every now and then, and days that become shorter and shorter. Of course, enjoying this season equipped with rubber boots, a rain-check and a cap can be nice, as I showed to you on my last two photo walks. Sometimes, however, sitting at the window sill ...

Jason M. Peterson

A name many of you may be familiar with and those of you who don’t know it yet are certainly going to hear more often in the near future.

WESTLICHT

I don’t know in which cities you live, where you enjoy traveling and what kind of exhibitions you prefer to visit. Yet I’d like to inform you about something now that’s moving me quite a lot, even if it may seem very far away to many! Vienna. A city where I spend quite a lot ...

On his blog “People Matching Artworks”, the Austrian photographer presents photos where people form a symbiotic relationship with the pictures. Do the colors ...

The art of cleaning up

Today I’d like to show you my latest art/photography discovery: Ursus Wehrli is called the “Monk” of photographers – but take a look for yourselves! Ursus Wehrli is a Swiss comedian, a visual artist, a photographer and an action artist. He worked as a typographer and was widely discussed because of his project “The Art ...

Transylvania

Hey guys, Today I want to take you on a somewhat different photo walk. As much as I love digital photography, every now and then I also feel like leaving my heavy Canon 5D Mark III at home and exploring the world with an analogue camera. Such cameras are light, handy and the feeling of ...

First images taken with my Sigma SD Quattro

Yes, you read that right, my Sigma SD Quattro has arrived and I’ve already had a chance to take some photos with Sigma’s very first “EVIL”. It’s too early to go into everything that was changed or improved in comparison with the SD1 Merrill. We are talking about a change of concept, from a DSLR ...

Once upon a time … Fairytale images by Katarzyna and Marcin Owczarek

Fairytales have always counted among my favorite stories. No matter how grown up I became, fantasy and fairytale stuff has always kept fascinating me. The lack of all logic, endless possibilities and unlimited creativity and inspiration are probably the aspects that fascinate me so much about fairytales. Speaking animals, enchanted princes, surprising turning points we ...
