North Korea unfiltered

There is hardly any place in the world of which we know as little as North Korea. Although the country under the rule of dictator Kim Jong-un is in the news almost weekly, there is hardly any information about how life in North Korea really looks like for its inhabitants. Maybe this is the reason ...

Alfra Martini – Cats as cover star doubles

The cat fans among you have surely heard of it already, all others may still be thrilled by the photos taken by American photographer Alfra Martini.

Welcome back, David Lachapelle!

As I’ve already shown you in my article on Oliviero Toscani, I’m pretty much interested in the art of commercial photography.

UP THE MOUNTAINS WITH THE SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM | Art

 By now, colorful autumn has left us and the city has immersed into some sad gray tones. The tall buildings, the sky and even the people in the city look gray to me in winter. The snow never remains and instead the streets are covered with wet slush. Besides my cold fingers and a red ...

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 ...
