Forever young

Staying connected to the youth is essential for my work. Because we all want to stay young, freeze the best years of our lives. When nothing mattered more than joyful moments and you had no sorrows. Playfulness, childishness, crazyness. How do you put this into a visual experience?

Three years of work lay behind me. All shootings for my new book are wrapped. After 31 sessions with around 800 – 1,200 images each, I had a hard time selecting the best ones and putting them into nice series.

What gives cars a soul?

For me a car is just a tool to get from A to B. Nothing more. But why? Most probably because the design ideas of the 70s weren't compatible to our markets. Check out this dreamy introduction to Grand Basel, showcasing a very rare Lancia Sibilo.

Who's that girl?

I discovered Katia when she was 19 years old. By that time I had just finished the proof printing of my first book. It was too late to put her into this book. But I knew, she was someone special. So, I beared her in mind and contacted her when the time was right.

Soon to get published

Time seems to fly. It's always like that when you're busy. I am so happy to announce that the cover page of my new book is finished. The title of the book has been set for 10 months already and the logo is ready now, too. So, as you can imagine, I am in the final steps and in a couple of months, after three years of intense work, my new coffee table book will be out.

Chiara Bianchino

There's something about Italian girls. They are considered impulsive and sanguigni (lit: bloody) because they can't hold their tongues and raise their voices. Chiara is such a passionate Italian woman and here's what she told me when I met her in Milan.

A tripod that fits in a pocket

After a couple of years, you can judge better what gear is useful and what stuff rests in the drawer for years. There's one little camera tripod I am constantly using and that barely anyone knows. So, I thought, I tell you about it.

About the lollipop

For ages, the lollipop has been used in sensual photography. Among themes it is by far the most stereotypical one that I know. Even I used it several times. But never saw a girl suck or chew on a lollipop in real life.

Appeal of the Sony a7RIII

For a couple of weeks the successor of my Sony camera is out on the market. You could read many opinions in internet forums from people who had only read the technical specs from Sony's press release. Luckily I was invited to get hands-on information through a professional Sony expert at my local dealer. Here are my (rather non-technical) conclusions.
