Oporto, oh Porto

Last year in September I spend some days in Porto, a very nice coastal town in northwestern of Portugal. Of course I had a camera with me and made my own picture. But careful, they are not typical tourist shots. I prefer to watch the people who live there, finding corners that are not so spruced up, searching graphic elements and street art. I also tried to capture the lights and shadows in the afternoons, when the sun anymore stood not high in the sky.

Before this trip I visited only the Algarve around twenty years ago, so I never saw Lissabon or another potuguese city. A friend and my travel companion said, Porto is like Lissabon, just smaller. That is what I like. So we walked many kilometers a day through the main town and city parts, and rented a car to travel along the Douro to Pinhao.

So, enough of the words … sorry for too many pictures …

‘RAPX Photo Exhibition’ with pictures by Christopher Ho, Bjoern Maletz, Martin Magielka and Kurt Schrage. RAPX is a well known label for street wear, mainly skateboarding, based in Bochum, Germany and celebrate in 2018 its 32 year annivesary. The exhibiton shows photos of skateborders from the 80ties till today.

Während des Weltblicke Festivals und den Essener Foto- und Videotagen von
Foto Frankenberg auf dem Welterbe Zollverein fand in Zusammenarbeit mit
der IG Ruhrpott-Fotografie ein Fotowalk mit Führung durch die Kokerei
Zollverein statt.
Ich habe die Teilnehmer begleitet und konnte dabei die Leica SL mit dem Vario-
Elmarit-SL 24 – 90 mm f2.8 – 4 ASPH. testen. Fazit: Es ist auch nur eine Kamera.
Dafür groß, schwer, kalt im Winter und ziemlich teuer. Hier ein paar Eindrücke.
Es war ein super Tag …

Kokerei fotogen

Last September I had two reasons to stay a few days in Cologne. First there was the Photokina and second the Photoszene Festival. At the fair I’ve to look for news in phototechnology and to meet distributors and customers. It was ok, but honestly there wasn’t really intersting new things and I’m trying to think more about the picture, not the technology. Just only for my main job in photo wholesale I need to know these new cameras and accessoires. So I show you first some pictures from my walks through Cologne and send big thanks to Ying and Christian for thier hospitality.

Laundry day or something else?

Laundrette, Brussels – Saint-Gilles, August 2016

So, last saturday we went to Brussels, to see Alex Webb’s exhibition “The Suffering of Light” at the Bontanique. I loved it, excellent pictures and a nice place. Most of his pictures are known to me, I own his two books “Istanbul – City of a Hundred Names” and “on Street Photography and the Poetic Image” (with his wife Rebecca Norris Webb), but it’s great to see the photos in a larger size on the walls.
