Oh joy

18 years ago I helped the Leipzig Olympic bid to success with a courageous film. The "Sächsische Zeitung" remembers:

The Panda babies

Last autumn I was allowed to exclusively photograph the first steps of the two panda babies of the Berlin Zoo. A first look after the jump.

New in my portfolio: Screencast Videos

The Berlin startup Idagio is currently the best streaming service for classical music. Before Christmas I realized a screencast for the company, which explains the cool features and their fantastic music search engine for everyone.

The Fence

The news lately have been a little thin. That wasn't because I was bored, it was mainly because I developed a new radio play series for Amazon/Audible together with my friend Dominic Raacke. Since the beginning of the year we conceived the story, since about April I was writing the outlines for the episodes, now we have handed in and are curious whether we will get the order for the series ourselves


The script funding for my Bavarian science fiction film "Aliens in Oberbayern" has finally put me in a position to restructure the material together with the dramaturge Lasse Nolte and completely rearrange it. The result is a first version of the screenplay after much atrocity and bloody typing of fingers, at the end of which the answer to the questions of all questions is: are the Bavarians from this world? As you can see, it's all top secret. Hopefully more about this soon

Re-Shooting for Ina Dassel

After all the writing this year I could finally unpack a camera and take some photos last weekend. The Berlin graphic artist and jewellery designer Ina Dassel needed a re-shooting for her collection and I was allowed to take the photos for her

Mein Schiff

In cooperation with TUI, the LUMAS Gallery has just set up a beautiful gallery on board its latest cruise liner, the "Mein Schiff 5". After the Massgames themselves didn't come out of North Korea (so far), they are now sailing around the world at least in the form of my photos. If you happen to be on board this luxury steamer, just drop by on deck 4

Deep in Bavaria

The script funding has not only revived the "Aliens in Oberbayern", but has also enabled me to finally dig deeper into Bavarian history and actually find out how it really is with the origin of Bavaria. Currently I am travelling all over Bavaria, looking, searching, finding and discovering new favourite places and asking all sorts of people from the museum attendant in Burghausen to the head of the Bavarian costume research institute in Benediktbeuern a big hole in their stomach

Exhibition in Warsaw

My photo series about the Massgames in Pyongyang, North Korea has been around for a few years, but is still one of the few that exist. How hard it was to get the permission for it and to carry out the project at all, can be read on the project page and I am still proud that the series exists at all. Now one of the photos will be exhibited at the 25th International Poster Biennale in Warsaw. More info after the click (on the title)
