Lene went back to Tropical Islands for stern magazine

Just recently Lene was assigned by stern to shoot a picture of the Tropical Islands Resort near Berlin. As she has been taking pictures there back in 2007, it was quite exciting for her to return to this artificial world and see whether it has changed or not.

NPD dominiert Pegida Ableger in Schwerin

Sorry this article is only available in german…

»Je suis Charlie« stand nicht auf ihren Schildern. Die etwa 400 MVgida-Teilnehmer, die sich am Montagabend an der Schweriner Siegessäule versammelten, solidarisierten sich keinesfalls mit den Pariser Terroropfern und dem damit verbundenen Angriff auf die Pressefreiheit: »Lügenpresse – auf die Fresse« skandierten sie stattdessen lauthals. Mit Strahlern blendeten sie Kameras, Journalisten wurde sich in den Weg gestellt, auch schon mal kräftig geschubst. Die Redner bei den Zwischenkundgebungen wurden abgeschirmt, so dass sie kaum fotografiert werden konnten. Die Stimmung war aggressiv.

Ganz offensichtlich wurde die Veranstaltung von NPD und freien Kräften dominiert. Neben der fast kompletten NPD Landtagsfraktion und deren Anhängern waren viele Kammeradschaftler, Dynamo Hooligans und rechtsextreme Rocker gekommen. Nur einige wenige ältere Herren und ein paar Familien gesellten sich zu den MVgida-Anhängern. Nur wenige Polizisten, teilweise waren es gerade mal etwas über ein Dutzend, schützten die Medienvertreter, deren Arbeit unter diesen Bedingungen schwierig wurden. Außer dem NDR und Vertretern der Lokalzeitungen folgten nur Fachjournalisten und wenige Beobachter dem gruseligen Aufzug. Später räumte die Einsatzleitung gegenüber einem Journalisten ein, dass es tatsächlich zeitweilig zu wenig Beamte gewesen seien.

Interesting GEO Assignement

Bildschirmfoto 2014-12-18 um 12.05.35I was recently assigned to do a very unusual job for GEO magazine – half assistent half photographer. The job was to photograph schools that are using innovative tools in their teaching. One example being a so called SteveJobs School in Amsterdam. Every student there has an Ipad on which they do their tasks individually. It was completely different to the kind of school i went to. The story can be read in GEO germany’s current issue.

The whole operation involved american photographer Gail Albert Halaban, a lot of technology and myself. The idea was for Gail to take photos in Europe without leaving her desk in New York City. This is how it worked: I went to the schools, set up a camera, lighting and two computers. I connected one of the computers to my camera and allowed Gail to take control over this computer with a program called LogMeIn. This way she could release the shutter of the camera in CaptureOne. The other computer was used to communicate via Skype. Once everything was running, Gail was able to talk to me and the students, capture images and look at them instantly, “almost” as if she was there.
The editors asked me to shoot some pictures myself if had the time. I had little but was happy to see that one of my pictures ended up as the opening spread for the story.
I wouldn’t say that this is the most effective way to take pictures, but it was nevertheless very interseting to see what is possible using modern technology these days.
Another good thing was that Florian was assigned to do a making of video of the Amsterdam shoot. This resulted in a nice little Kollektiv25 get together with Julius in Amsterdam. The video is unfortunately only available for clients that buy the Ipad version of the magazine, therefore i can’t link it here…
