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 ...

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 ...

Ja Soon Kim

It’s quite interesting what can have a calming effect on us. Whale songs, classical music, yoga, a hot cup of tea and pictures of flowers and leaves. Yes, the pictures of flowers and leaves taken by Ja soon Kim and nicely arranged eradiate something visually very soothing. Her compositions are very clear, meticulous and structured ...

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 ...

In every detail: Todd McLellan

  Canadian photographer Todd McLellan uses his origins from a home full of technicians and engineers to create a very special still life. In his photo series “Things Come Apart”, he uses very ordinary everyday items to arrange them in order to create photographic works of art. For this purpose the Canadian takes them apart ...
