The show, curated by hannah goldstein & Katja Hausstein (Kaetha) and Julia Schiller (PiB Photography in Berlin) will take place at the beautiful Stummfilmkino Delphi Berlin in Berlin-Weissensee on Saturday, May 2, 2015. The deadline for submissions is Monday, April 20, 2015.

At each event, guests bring home-cooked dishes to share and the feast is followed by a slideshow of 20-25 local artists, ranging from emerging to very established.

Notable past Slideluckers include Chuck Close, Shepard Fairey, Elliott Erwitt, Spencer Tunick, Edward Burtynsky, Lauren Greenfield, Nadav Kander, Inez & Vinoodh, Bruce Davidson, Gregory Crewdson, Julie Blackmon, Alec Soth, Eugene Mirman, Alex Prager, Iwan Baan, Martin Parr, and DJ Spooky. This event is organized by the founder of Conflux Magazine, an electronic, submissions based magazine.

FENSTER61 (“WINDOW61″)
uses an approx. 2 by 2 meter shop window in the very busy Torstraße, near subway Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz in Berlin Mitte. Since 2005 photographers are presented in monthly changing exhibitions with works that more or less deal with Berlin. FENSTER61 is not a gallery. FENSTER61 doesn’t have opening hours, since the visitor is in a public space. The window is lit at night.

BOOK • FILM • PAINTING

A while ago, artist Stuart Pilkington asked over 100 photographers from around the world to participate in his latest collaborative project BOOK • FILM • PAINTING – and I’m honored to be one of them. My contribution was inspired by Nikos Kazantzakis’ book “Alexis Zorbas” (Zorba The Greek).

“Everything in this world has a hidden meaning, I thought. Men, animals, trees, stars, they are all hieroglyphics;
woe to anyone who begins to decipher and guess what they mean. … When you see them you do not understand them.
You think that they are really men, animals, trees, stars. It is only years later, too late, that you understand.”
— Zorba, in Nikos Kazantzakis’ novel “Alexis Zorbas”

Belfast Photo Festival 2013

ACMV – that is Oliver and I – was invited to take part in the Belfast Photo Festival 2013.
We met lots of great folks, saw an insane amount of great photography, and had tons of fun. Festival Director Michael Weir even arranged for truly splendid weather during the opening weekend – which was nice of him! The only thing I disliked about Belfast was the left-hand traffic – in retrospect it’s a miracle I survived.
We also gave a talk and curated a screening – both focusing on the theme of “Spectacle” in Photography – featuring a bunch of very talented emerging (and established) photographers from all over the world. Our special thanks again to Michael, and to Peggy Sue Amison (Festival Board Member, Freelance Curator and Artistic Director of Sirius Arts Centre Cobh) for this fabulous opportunity.

C-41 Photographic Magazine | Feature

A selection of my images are featured on C-41 – an online magazine of photography, edited by Alek Dobrohotov and Luca A. Caizzi. Thanks for that!
C-41 is not an art gallery and it’s not a niche. It’s not subversion, yet it doesn’t claim to enclose authorship within the narrow spaces of authority. It’s not just images. It’s also interviews and projects of different kinds. In progress, thematic projects that involve all aspects of work, from research to social sharing.

roseamer | Diptyque #106

I am glad that one of my photographs became an inspiration for one of roseamer‘s diptychs.
Rose – whose name is not Rose but Alexia Chandon-Piazza – likes diptychs (obviously), letters of fallen trees and collecting quotes from her reading of the moment. She is also a prolific writer and artist. Check out her work sometime!
