February March Update

6 weeks ago I came back from Bolivia, and since then a bunch of things have happened. First of all, I had to work quite a bit to refill may rather empty bank account. 93 rolls of exposed film got developed, and I then printed contact sheets and scanned a wide edit and quickly printed the pictures as small 13*18 cm (5*7 ”) copies.
Another thing that kept me busy was moving into my new office/studio in Berlin Neukölln. It’s a wonderful big space that I’m sharing with 6 other creative guys from various backgrounds (architecture, fashion design, graphic design, copywriter, art). So until July when I’ll have my thesis show in Dortmund I will probably spend quite some time here!
Here are some pictures of the space and some snapshots of the long-lasting editing process.
At the moment and that’s not going to change within the next weeks, I’m working on the edit and doing post production on the high-res scans (which means color corrections, cleaning the files of dust etc.). I also began to do some first layouts and think about how the book should look like, especially in terms of format and size but also in terms of the concept / sequencing the photographs. Another thing I’m about to start with is learning how to build wooden frames for my exhibition (there is a workshop connected to the office/studio space which I can use). As one always needs frames for exhibitions etc. I thought that this is a good moment to start making them myself! (Though not quite sure if that’s gonna be succesful. We’ll see.)
Ohh and I forgot: flare magazin (flaremag.de / flaremag.com) selected the “top ten german photographers under 30 years“, and I was fortunate enough to be among them, next to guys like Julian Röder whose work I really like! See the post here.
