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 ...

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 ...

Living in boxes

Speaking for myself, I found the pictures of the Hong Kong subway unbearable already. As someone who just doesn’t feel comfortable when there’s not enough space and who’s even claustrophobic, a subway ride in Hong Kong during rush hour would probably mean hell on earth. The pictures I’ve recently seen in the National Geographic Magazine ...

The first making-of pictures in the new Pirelli Calendar 2018

Everyone who’s a bit interested in photography will come across this particular calendar: Of course, I’m talking about the Pirelli Calendar! This exclusive photo calendar, which is edited by Italian tire manufacturer Pirelli, was published for the first time in 1964.

The colors of the desert

When you come from a country like I do, where green and blue are clearly the most dominating colors, you will hardly be able to imagine that elsewhere humans and animals live in landscapes that may seem a bit hostile and perhaps even scary to us. As a child I felt that way when I ...

Martijn van Oers and the mystery of 70-year-old photographs

As you probably already know, I’m a big fan of antique photographs. It’s one of my biggest dreams to discover an old, not developed film one day and to see photographs from a past era, pictures nobody has ever seen before. That’s been one of my childhood fantasies. And that’s why I’m regularly searching flea ...

The world in faces – by Alexander Khimushin

Faces keep fascinating me. Some time ago I already told you in an article how much emotions in portrait photography fascinate me. Human emotions can literally be read in our faces. With the exception of extremely good poker players, perhaps. And that’s exactly why I find faces especially thrilling. One and the same face can ...

Guest contribution: Portrait and landscape photography with the Sigma 35 mm f1.4 Art and 20 mm 1.4 Art lenses

Hey guys! I’m really excited to give you some insights into my world of photography. In my article I focus on using the Sigma 35 mm f1.4 Art and 20 mm 1.4 Art lenses while I work with my Canon 5d Mark III. Sigma’s 35 mm lens is a true all-round lens which I primarily ...

Get on the train, please! –Michael Wolf and Tokyo’s rush hour

Everyone living in a big city can at least picture how unbearable the situation of people captured in the photos taken by Michael Wolf must be like. In the summer months, in particular, public transport isn’t a place to feel very good. In cities with an extremely high population density it won’t ever be. As ...
