  • carcassonne.

  • According to a legend, a prince besieged the city of Carcassonne. The siege held until the residents almost starved. However, the prince had not counted on the snazzy chatelaine Madame Carcas: she decided to fatten the last pig and, after it had become fat, to throw it over the castle wall. The besiegers, exhausted and[...]
  • zen.

  •   “Vulnerability is the only authentic state. Being vulnerable means being open, for wounding, but also for pleasure. Being open to the wounds of life means also being open to the bounty and beauty. Don’t mask or deny your vulnerability: it is your greatest asset. Be vulnerable: quake and shake in your boot[...]
  • Bác Hồ.

  •     These guys are guarding the undoubtedly most important person of Vietnam. If he wants it or not...because actually he wanted to be cremated and buried in north-, central- and south vietnam. But obviously it's easier to do honor to an embalmed body in a huge tomb. "Bác Hồ" means "Uncle Ho". Thi[...]
  • Đạo

  •     Vietnam always seems to be very busy. I got up quite early every morning during my travels. I never slept longer than 6am. But i always seem to be late. I couldn´t remember the motorbikes ever stopped hooting, the kitchens were always steaming and everyone had to sell something....anytime. Han[...]
  • Hung 'the heroic'

  • "the heroic". I think this rickshaw driver deserves his name. We just started a little tour through the old quarter of Hanoi when it started to pour down...I mean...in one moment you get grilled by the sun and all of a sudden the sky opens its gates. As quick as the weather changed my driver found his "rain cape" [...]
  • motorbikes

  •   After a 11h flight to HCMC, some waiting for my visa....and then trying to catch another 2 hours flight to Hanoi where my journey at least started. The first impression i got was the feeling to be surrounded by millions of motorbikes that all drive like nuts without any kind of system. There are about 92 mi[...]
  • Stark Magazine

  • I got published in the latest 2 issues (no. 8 and 9) of the Stark Magazine. You could get a digital or printed version here: http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/491016

  • the nun experience

  • the nun experience. There are some experiences for a photographer you get incredibly grateful. Grateful for the beauty you´re thrown in, grateful for the spirit kicking in, grateful for everything you are or will be. Fullstop.             [...]
  • hamburg icons

  • I recently visited my birth place Hamburg to visit my family. It's always nice to come back there. Many places are very familiar, others are in a constant change....ready to be rediscovered. I took a little series of phone shots to catch my personal Hamburg icons.     This is the top of the St[...]
  • correbous.

  • The summertime at the catalonian coast usually means plenty of tourists....and also a bunch of traditional events during the local festivals. Last week i showed some fireruns (correfocs)....this week i documented some bullsruns (correbous). Even though they banned the bullfights a couple of years ago, the correbous [...]
  • bunch of cows.

  •     This is one of them shots i didn´t have enough time for. Vietnam is full of pittoresque sceneries. Most of them flew by the window of the bus i was sitting in. Oh well.... Morning haze, some water buffalo (aka bunch of cows) and a beautiful landscape seem to be ingredients that work for me th[...]
  • couple vacations.

  •             a little break in my travel log about Vietnam. This is a triptych of a current project of mine.... couple vacations . Enjoy your holidays if you have some :-)
  • halong bay.

  •   yeah, i've done that. The Halong Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has approximately 2.000 islands, most of them uninhabited. Er....that about the cool facts. The vietnamese name for it is Vịnh Hạ Long ...and i'm stumbling directly into the more mystic part of this post. Vịnh Hạ Long means bay[...]
  • rice with duck.

  •     Duck droppings fertilize the water in which the rice grows. Ducks also eat the algae and other weeds that grow near the young rice plants. That's maybe more information you would need if you're serving some rice for tea. But if you add a fired duck with it, you think in relative terms. Or get[...]
  • Xia.

  •     I would like to introduce you to Xia. I hope i spelled her name correctly (because she couldn't tell me about it). She was one of these ladies that accompanied me through the beautiful valley in Lai Chau you see in the back of this picture. She has 2 kids and a husband to feed, so every early mo[...]
  • toothpick smile.

  •     More portraits....more smiles. I think i've never shot that many smiling faces ever in my life. And i don't think i could ever get bored of that. I met this beautiful lady at the market of Bac Ha. It may be one of the most touristy market in this area...but still full of gems. I hope you e[...]
  • haircut.

  • Travelling in the tropics/subtropics are kindof a challenge when you´re not used to it. Up to  38°C (100F) with 80-100% humidity outside, down to 17-20°C (62-68F) inside of a hotel/bus/train... You know what this humidity makes with curly hair? It makes you look like a poodle standing in the rain for hours. Luck[...]
  • flower hmong II

  •     I met this lady at the famous sunday market of Bac Ha. Unfortunately another person i couldn't really talk to due language difficulties. Hmong people are maintaining their culture. Not only in their clothing but also in their traditions, and in particular their languages. To make it short...i[...]
