It's always a delight to work with Christian Harting, one of the best German actors to date, who won an Oscar and a Palme d'Or in 2016. For the recent portrait session Nuances we went to Club der Polnischen Versager, an established yet super trendy location in Berlin, and pushed a few rolls of film through the camera. Here's a first picture, made by my peerless assistant and camera operator Lena Krebs.

In the series Twisted Landscapes, this story is told.

On a recent trip to the North Yorkshire coast, I discovered Saltburn Pier, a remarkable example of architecture from the Victorian era. It sparked my inspiration to look out for similar scenery in different places – and to create a series of landscape pictures that could have sprung from a Wes Anderson movie. If you'd like to suggest suitable places, please don't hesitate to send me an email. Thank you!
