A quasi-reportage series at a local horse fair in Andravida, Greece, September 2008.
"A feast for the eye" is my complete library of photobooks. It currently consists of 267 volumes of well known, rare and out-of-print photobooks but also less known gems that I collected during the last 15 years. Contact me if you are interested in a particular title for purchase or trade.
Continuing the Nothing Special series of blog posts with a small bunch of squared crops that may as well be included in a new edit in the works.
Even though the title of this new series is self-explanatory, I will add that it's also I way to share some images that haven't made the cut and they wouldn't have seen the light of day otherwise. It is also a self-motivation to shoot almost every day, everywhere, regardless...
A bunch of recent photos taken during a local religious festival in my hometown. I found the occasion as a good opportunity to experiment with night flash and the shutter drag technique. There are quite many streetogs that are doing this stuff in an unparalleled way. However, even though nothing original I was quire happy with some of the results.
If you haven't bought Vanessa Winship's first book Black Sea (only in German under the title "Schwarzes Meer") buy it now while it is still available from amazon marketplace and in very affordable prices. I have bought the book a few years back and with all the recent buzz about Winship's name, I thought it has long been extinct. Her best body of work by far, the most authentic and umediated, unlike her conceptual portrait series that comprise her two later books Sweet Nothings: Schoolgirls of Eastern Anatolia (2007) and the widely - and for me unjustifiably - acclaimed She Dances on Jackson (2011-2012). A new retrospective book titled Vanessa Winship is on its way for this autumn that reproduces her many aclaimed projects.
