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 ...

Baobabs

Bao what? Some of you may certainly wonder when reading this title. Even I hadn’t been familiar with that name until now. Few of you may know the scientific name Adansonia. One of my aunts has one of these exotic trees in her garden and proudly presents it every time we visit her. However, it ...

Brent Stirton wins the Wildlife Photographer of the year Award 2017

This year’s winning image of the Wildlife Photographer Award is not any image you would enjoy watching. With his photo Brent Stirton – a big name among wildlife photographers – wanted to draw our attention to something which, unfortunately, is still a reality: hunting and the extinction of animal species caused by it. Currently rhinos ...

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!

My “photographic dream” of Africa

Red soil, endless wilderness, breathtaking sunsets, amazing animals, freedom and adventures. All this and much more I can relate to my dream of Africa. As far as I remember I’ve always dreamed of exploring Africa. Of seeing the animals you usually watch in a zoo or – even more tragically – in a circus show ...

People change. PLACES AS WELL.

I’m sure everyone of you knows that feeling. Those places from our childhood we used to visit once or perhaps more often and of which we have a very clear picture in our minds. An image so clear as if it had been yesterday. Maybe there was that incredibly beautiful spot by the river one ...

The Dead Sea – Drone shots by Tzvika Stein

The Dead Sea. Perhaps it’s the name that sounds a bit scary or the mere fact that people can float on it magically. As a child the Dead Sea fascinated me in a wonderful and horrific way. I kept asking friends and relatives who’d already been there to tell me what it felt like, and ...

“#365 Unpacked “– The trash of our lives.

Being honest, we all know it. Some of us still manage to look the other way or close our eyes about it, but we do know it. We are slowly (or not even so slowly) but steadily covering this planet with trash. Trash that inevitably will, at some point, rob us from enough fertile soil ...

Klimbim is giving color to the gray past

Here we go again. One of my favorite topics: Traveling through time. With photographs. This time I want to introduce you to an artist whose work I’ve been admiring for quite some time: Olga Shirnina. With a technique which the Moscow-born artist claims to have learnt all by herself online she turns antique black and ...
