Trier is relaxing and beautiful…

7 Jan

This year I spent new years eve in the city of Trier. It is one of the oldest cities of Germany, used to be the residence of the Emporer Constantine II. between 328 and 340 and is most famous for the large Roman city gate ‘Porta Nigra’. If you haven’t been there, come and visit it. Trier is relaxing and beautiful. Besides, Karl Marx was born in Trier and grew up there.

a southern US road trip…

28 Nov

Went on a road trip with an old friend of mine. In two weeks – from the end of october to the beginning of november – we made about 4.300 kilometers, passing through 9 states of the US of A: Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California.
I’m afraid, I wasn’t able to do very many good pics ’cause the trip was mostly about being on the road – like Kerouac – or like this old wise chinese guy said: the journey is the reward (‘Der Weg ist das Ziel’ in German). And shooting pictures while driving a car is not my favorite thing to do.
However, here are some impressions…

ripped off in Dortmund City North

27 Sep

Shot this one in the Northern part of the City. Many people call it the deprived part of Dortmund. I even know people who are afraid to go there. Well, in my opinion it’s a pitty to live in a golden cage of the richer parts, not getting in contact with people and life somewhere else, except your own tribe of middle and higher class people. Besides, City North is one of the most creative regions of Dortmund with an exciting night life scene to discover.
When I started the ripped off series I lived there and it was much easier to find subjects to photograph because old an ripped off posters are omnipresent at the sides of the streets…

another ripped-off…

24 Aug

Shot this one quite close to my home, while walking to the supermarket. It’s good to have your camera with you almost all the time…
