Beth Moon and the trees

Trees mean life. They purify our air, produce oxygen, protect animals and insects, they provide us with food and raw material.

Beth Moon, a photographer from San Francisco, has spent her last 14 years finding the oldest ...

WILLIAM PAUL GOTTLIEB

William Paul Gottlieb, born in 1917, was one of the most important music journalists and photographers of his time. For his lifetime the New Yorkan artist was a big admirer of jazz music. After some months at the “Washington Post”, where he started to work as an advertising agent in 1938, he was quickly promoted ...

“#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 ...

Let’s dream ourselves on a beach…

Welcome summer, welcome you wonderful warm nights which you can enjoy sitting out at the water in a summer dress, forgetting time and regret staying awake for very long on the next morning at your job (at least for a short time). These nights are the moments where I can at least pretend to be ...
