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 ...

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 ...

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. Definitely this photographer counts among those living the social media dream. Of course, his success comes from an incredible photographic talent, however, without Instagram his masterpieces ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
