Singles: Brazilian Street Festival, New York City

posted in: New York, Singles 0

Back in the early and mid-1990s, I traveled to New York City a number of times to photograph on the streets of this vibrant metropolis that was so much more interesting than the cities in my native Germany. Apart from the action and its phenomenally diverse and interesting inhabitants, what sets the city apart from others is that special quality … Read More

Elvis meets the Pope

posted in: Events, Italy, Music 2

No, I’m not crazy. And no, this is not about photoshopping images of situations that never happened. The fact of the matter is that while the Pope in this story is the real thing, Elvis is, ahem, not so much. Last summer I saw quite a few homemade-looking billboards next to country roads in my area, advertising an Elvis Museum … Read More

Another case of serendipity

posted in: Montana 3

For a people photographer, planning photographic opportunities is not an easy thing. Even more so when he’s traveling and wants to convey the mood of a place. You can’t really plan whom you’re going to meet and what the situation will be like unless you start with a preconceived notion, which is exactly the opposite of what I want to … Read More

The 2016 dozen

posted in: Germany, Montana, Singles 0

With 2016 just behind me, I went through the pictures I took over the course of the year and selected 12 of my favorites. Not necessarily the ‘best’ ones (I find the concept of ranking each and everything a little odd, anyway), but 12 photographs that I will certainly remember. Thunderstorm passing through Dunkirk, MT.A musician friend relaxing before a … Read More

Visiting Jeannie – A stay at the O’Haire Motor Inn

posted in: Montana 0

  When I was a boy, one of my favorite TV shows was I dream of Jeannie with Barbara Eden playing a 2,000-year-old genie who gets freed from her bottle by an astronaut (played by Larry Hagman) with whom she falls in love. A few years ago I bought all episodes of the series on DVD and had a great … Read More
