Ruins reconstructed – A glimpse into the world of damsels, knights and others

Have you ever walked through the ruins of a fort or a castle? Can you still remember the feeling you had while doing so? Or what was on your mind then? Ever since I’ve been a fan of old things and places and I’m incredibly interested in history. I was lucky to grow up in ...

Nothing is for free

By now everyone interested in photography has probably heard that Flickr will soon be downgrading its free plan. Since Verizon sold Flickr to SmugMug in April of current year, it was clear that things would change. SmugMug is after all a photo hosting and sharing platform which doesn’t offer a free plan. Those who can’t ...

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” ...

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. ...

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 ...

Jean-Baptiste Mondino – an icon photographs other icons

The list of icons he photographed is endless: from Madonna, David Bowie, Prince to Björk, Lenny Kravitz and Sting. He also counts among the most important and most ...

More and more instant photos

For the past few years all of us have certainly noticed that instant cameras have become increasingly popular and experienced a complete revival. Everyone loves the little square or rectangular images with pale colors and white margins. Just add the date or some words with a black pen, wait for a few minutes and you’ve ...

Here are the finalists of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Award.

Oooh, the time has come again. The award season is well under way and the finalists of one of my favorite contests have already been announced. Last year I told you about my fascination for the Comedy Wildlife Photography Award and I’m starting to realize that this year’s selection of the winning and finalists’ photos ...

Does beard lapse mean anything to you?

I’ve seen several time lapse videos, in which photographers record via selfies or portrait shots certain longer lasting and therefore difficult to perceive changes, such as the growing up of their children. But seeing someone record growing a long beard over a longer period of time is a first for me. And this is exactly ...

Shadow plays – Vincent Bal

I've probably mentioned it a hundred times by now, but I just have to stress it again and again, I'm rarely as enthusiastic about something as about people who conquer the world with creative photo ideas. Or, at least become successful with it. 😉 My latest discovery is Vincent Bal. Many of you will probably ...
