REEPERBAHN FESTIVAL 2017

CONTAINER LOVE EXHIBITION

Container Love Art project at Reeperbahn festival 2017. What a blast. Four days surrounded by wonderful artworks of wonderful artists. Four days of love and diversity. And four days of fantastic singer songwriter music, framed by artist talks, a book presentation, a movie demonstration and an amazing reading.

The Reeperbahn Festival was not only a beautiful experience, but it was also very moving. Many guests talked about their life stories: stories of differentness, stories of outings, stories of their own children which are in a period of discovery for example. They have understood the message: More tolerance! More openness! More togetherness! More love for everyone! Of course, there were others who could not deal with openness, feminism or homosexuality. But they have seen us anyway. ;)

THE SOUL HAS NO GENDER

EDITORIAL FOR OE MAGAZINE

Planningtorock‘s song ‘Let’s talk about gender baby’ was the starting point for this editorial. Perception and truth have little to do with one another and everything to do with the resulting images. (taken from OE Magazine)

For this series we were working with the art of collages to underline the gender theme. Because no matter if you’re a boy or a girl or something between, life can be sweet to all of us. This lingerie series were shown in several magazines like OE Magazine or Kaltblut Magazine as well as on some exhibitions.

And now listen to the stunning song.

BORN TO RUN

campaigning for Mercedes-Benz Vans 2011 - 2018

From the very beginning of my career, I was working for many automotive clients like BMW, BMW Mini, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Porsche, Smart, Lamborghini & Škoda. From draft to realization, from pitches to daily routine, from 360° campaigns to events and fairs like IAA (Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung) or several web summits. I guess that never-ending love story will go on and on…

Here you can see typical day-day-work that comes to award-winning-work. Working for Hamburg based agency Lukas Lindemann Rosinski was always a pleasure. Thank you for 7 years of freelancing for Mercedes-Benz Vans

FACES

Collages for Loved & Found Magazine

I put a spell on you. In the autumn of 2013 I collaborated with the Leipzig based photographer Loreen Hinz to create some black and white collages. The pictures were shown in Loved & Found Magazine as well as at several exhibitions like The Big Picture, Bondi Beach, Australia and at Month of Photography, Denver.
