The Latest Roll

It’s Saturday morning. I’ve been extremely busy working on various film projects here. So not many things have been going on here on the blog. To be honest it will likely stay that way for a while. But every now and then I make a point of loading a roll of film and go for a little hike with the Hasselblad or the Mamiya (and hopefully soon the Voigtlaender Bessa III - new toy on my radar…). Doing so is like an old fashioned low-tech getaway. Clears my mind from the technically complex film productions I’m involved with these days. So if anything I’ll be posting the results here from time to time…

Like today. This is the latest roll of Fuji Neopan 400 out of the Hasselblad 500c/m. When I look at these it feels like they were taken in 1945 for some reason…

Fahrenheit Magazine

As a nice little surprise I had a copy of Fahrenheit Magazine delivered the other day. It’s a Mexican magazine for contemporary art. For their special on Switzerland’s art scene, they chose one of my images as the cover:

They also wrote some nice things about my work inside the mag. At least I think they did, since I don’t know any Spanish. In case you do feel free to drop a translation - I’ll update the post with it.

Hope (+Contest)

From time to time a good friend of mine has asked me about one of my images from my GLAUBE | LIEBE | HOFFNUNG show. He was referring to the image entitled HOFFNUNG (Hope), which was one of the main images of the exhibition. He asked why I hadn’t featured it in various photo communities across the net. It’s been on my website for a little while, but I haven’t shown it anywhere else thus far. I’m not sure why, as it was one of the images which spurred the most discussions among visitors. “Is he already dead? Or isn’t he? What is hopeful about it?” were some of the questions. So, thanks to my good friend Beat Eisele, here it is:

Now that I look at the picture again, I start to wonder what you would have come up with to visualize “Hope”? What are your hopes? How can you make them visible? I would love for you to join me in a little project: Send in your images, showing your vision of hope! Me and Beat will select the best 10 and show them here on the blog. The creator of the best image will receive a signed 7×11 inch print of my version of Hope! So please help us out, it will be great to see all the different views of Hope!

Send in your pictures as jpg, no larger than 1000px to

The contest will close on August 31st 2010!

Looking forward to seeing what you see!
