100 meters of existence

March 8, 2009

Simon Hoegsberg is a freelance photographer based in Copenhagen. His newest project “We´re all gonna die – 100 meters in existence” however is set in Berlin, on a railroad bridge in Berlin to be exact.
In the summer of 2007 he photographed 178 people in the course of 20 days and compiled them in an amazing 100 m long image.

I loved how he managed to catch so many interesting people, or rather his photography manages to make them all stand out and portray the individualand the special something of everbody.

Book art

December 3, 2008

Books in itself are wonderful things i think. Those fantastic worlds that are hidden within, just visualized through 26 (or 29 in Germany) plain black and white letters. But their form can be very aesthetic too and can (and is often) be transformed into art.

Here are some nice photographies i found.
(though i couldn´t find the photographer´s name, if anybody knows him/her i´d appreciate if you´d let me know)

I found this right on time for the long easter weekend it seems.

A faboulus website to “waste” away the next couple of days (or more). ffffound is an image bookmarking website. You have to be invited by a member to be allowed to blog, but viewing them is for free. Images range from photography to graphic design, art, advertising, street art, vintage posters etc. From beautiful, enchanting and strange to dark and gloomy. Basically everything that catches the bloggers eye.

There must be more than 20 000 images there and it´s growing constantly.

A really great source for inspiration.

Happy easter 🙂

I seem to be coming back to this image. There just is something to it.

Inga, this one is just for us 🙂 A role model so to speak (although that certainly doesn´t mean that i want to throw myself into a warzone).

Christoph Bangert studiert Photography in Dortmund (!) and New York and seems to be currently cruising in a landrover somewhere in Africa and taking pictures for a new book. The last one Iraq: The space between is full of haunting (i feel hesitant to call them beautiful), stark und sometimes graphic images. A really well done book (as are the others on his website), but on a personal side, the idea that someone, who started at the same school we did, is doing such couragous and important (and crazy) work, is really humbling and motivating i think. So there is hope yet 😉
