although it’s already a few days into 2014, i’d still like to say a few words about last year… because it was crazy, beautiful and so unexpected.
not only have i had the chance to shoot my first big billboard campaign in early 2013, but i also got to travel around a whole lot. and to be honest, that’s the reason i’m doing this, to have money to travel. to see as much of this vast and fascinating world. trying to understand its crazy ways a little bit better.
thanks so very much for all the various opportunities to meet great people, around the corner in cologne or far away in cuba, israel, lake constance or maybe just in a tiny little town in hunsrück-eifel. Either famous or simply extraordinary, who make the sun shine on a rainy day or teach me something special about life.
every one of them a beautiful mosaic of the bigger picture and the best what can happen to my curiosity & joy.
just to mention a few special treats in 2013 //
3 days of fashion circus and sightseeing assignment in antwerp for DB mobil, 3-day reportage in holland for ENORM magazine, the portrait of little marian in cuba for NIDO magazine, interviews with joachim król, christine westermann, sandra maischberger, on filmset with annette frier & kerstin gier and some 3897 billboards all over germany for the federal ministry of education and research.
i didn’t only have the pleasure to photograph but also taste mouth-watering food for ZEIT magazine, NEFF, antipasti for arte di viva and a dutch temaki start-up. More traveling for STERN magazine up north… various other beautiful assignments for SPIEGEL magazine, Wirtschaftswoche, FORM magazine, ADAC magazine, Lufthansa Exclusive, Brigitte, FürSie and many more…
… and in between there was time for inspiration, culture and free projects. yay!
i’m so grateful for these precious encounters and this amazing variety. i’m truly honored by all the trust and faith in me. also big thanks to my great teams, the support of my friends, colleagues & family.
can’t wait to see what 2014 will bring <3
…hope you all had a great start into 2014 !!!
just a few days into the new year and i already had my first publication in the newspaper Generalanzeiger Bonn — my portrait of israeli-german chef tom franz, who i had the honor to meet and photograph in jerusalem, israel.
…and coming up this week, I’m looking forward to my first assignment for DeinSpiegel…yay!
a wonderful christmas time and a very happy new year !!!
