I finally got around to edit some of the behind the scenes footage from the shoot for LIEBE (Love), which was one of three principal images of my latest project GLAUBE | LIEBE | HOFFNUNG (Faith, Love, Hope). As it was the case with the other images in the show, I took the term “love” a step further, expressing what usually happens when humans are in love. In essence, it is a constant fight. A fight for yourself, a fight for the other one or a battle for the both of you. So the subtitle of this one is: “The Battle of the Hearts”
"Love" - from GLAUBE | LIEBE | HOFFNUNG
We shot this in June 2009 at an old warehouse in the harbor of Basel. Once again the Zurich based agency FOTOGEN provided us with two very talented models for this story. Sarah and Zacharias were a blast to work with! Also on set we had Thierry Leyva acting as my fellow assistant. And very importantly on this one: Fräulein Scharlach who did all of the SFX make up.
Just a quick update today. Below is a little BTS from last night’s grand opening of photo09 in Zurich. The place was packed with 1500+ people and we all had great time. It’s always nice to meet folks year after year at the biggest photo event in Switzerland. Among some old friends like Klaus-Martin Gareis I had the pleasure of meeting Boris Baldinger, someone I have known “digitally” for some 3 years but had never met in person until last night!
For the third year in a row I will be part of the biggest Swiss Photo Expo, the photo 09! The creme de la creme of Swiss pro and amateur photographers gather for 4 days to show their favorite work from the past year.
I will be showing an excerpt of GLAUBE | LIEBE | HOFFNUNG. The show opens to the general public on Friday 15 January and will run until Monday 18 January. If you happen to be in Switzerland next weekend make sure to drop in! (and give me a heads up so I can meet you!)
