Some call it Imaginary Realism, others think of it as Magical Realism – whatever the genre, the new series Crossings (working title) deals with common, even profane secrets of our daily life, shown in rather surreal situations/scenes. More about it soon!
Summer finally arrived. And with it came Alissa. The Berlin-based model is not only a poppy lover, but a woman who loves nature all the way. So the setting of our production was clear from the start: lush poppy fields, and a sun that never sets (at least in our minds).
More of the series Summer Love soon to come.
The Weekend is a series produced in collaboration with Vienna-based designer Maiko Sakurai Karner and her label Kleine Tänzerin. Maiko not only creates extravagant pieces of jewelry that are featured in the pictures – she is also a very talented fashion designer and stylist. All pictures were produced on location in Vienna, with Kodak Portra 400 and Fuji Reala film.

These have been busy weeks lately, with a couple of productions for the series Welcome to Twin Peaks and some other assignments. And aside from the pictures related to the official series, we took the chance to make portraits of actors and actresses on the set, for example with the fabulous Katharina Sporrer. All pictures were created on film and can soon be found in the portrait section of the website.
Limited Edition Art Prints of selected works such as Mixotarians (Blue) are available at Juniqe Gallery.
