In other words

"I am three". This is how Charles Mingus fabulous autobiography "Beneath the underdog" begins.
It is an amazing text and in my last production "DRAMA - love songs and other jazz" we choreographed and expressed the text through the dance. There were different stages how the dance and text worked together and in this short clip you can see the combination of tap and a visual projection of the text.
The dancers are Laura Mogalle, Thomas Kolczewski und myself.

Portraits of the week

Last week Markus Voigt, a good friend of mine and great musician asked me to photograph a few portraits of his for his website. I gladly did so and we had a nice session in a theater on the Reeperbahn in Hamburg. Here are three shots that I really like.
I did the all photographs with the Fuji X-Pro 1 and the 18 and 35mm lenses. It was my first portrait session with those cams and again I really liked it. I only worked with available light and it was quite dim at the theater. But the X-Pro is just perfect for those conditions.

Urban Landscapes #1

Last week I started my new project "Urban Landscapes", capturing the the symbioses of people, architecture, street life and nature in a city. My main subject  for the next weeks will be Hamburg followed by Seattle in the fall / winter.
I love to roam the streets with my camera and explore the city in new ways. I usually go for long walks, carrying 2 bodies with a 28mm and a 50mm lens. Sometimes a 35mm. My favorite camera right now is the Fuji X-Pro 1. It's light, has remarkable image quality and is very unobtrusive for shooting on the streets.
Here are some pictures. Enjoy…..
