I enjoyed shooting in Italy for 3 weeks in April and May. The work “1km” focuses on sports grounds and places where people spend their leisure time. Among other cities I traveled to Rome, Bologna and Pescara. The project was commissioned by Altevie Technologies, Treviso and is curated by Gianpaolo Arena. The results will be published in a book by the end of this year, together with the work by the photographers Céline Clanet (France) and Raimond Wouda (Nederlands) who worked for that project in other parts of Italy at the same time.

"Third Nature", 2015Third Nature is a photographic approach to the historical incident of the Vajont dam disaster of 1963 in Italy. A selection of photos from the series is now online. The work is part of the CALAMITA/À project and will be published in a book by the end of this year.

"Uns geht es gut"I had the pleasure to work with director Henri Steinmetz as still photographer on his debut feature film Uns geht es gut. The movie is released in cinemas since January 2016. These are portraits of the four actors.

“Fünf junge Menschen, die im Zustand ewiger Sommerferien stehengeblieben sind. Alleine gelassen bilden Tubbie, Tim, Jojo, Birdie und das Mädchen Marie eine Ersatzfamilie. Ziellos, sehnsüchtig und hungrig wie wilde Hunde, streunen sie durch eine anonyme Großstadt. In der flirrenden Sommerhitze erleben sie gemeinsam noch einmal flüchtige Momente des Glücks. Doch die Gemeinschaft bekommt allmählich Risse…” (Text: Webseite Uns geht es gut, X-Verleih)

"Third Nature", 2015In November I started to work on a new project in Italy. The work focuses on the tragedy of the Vajont dam disaster of 1963 and is part of the CALAMITA/À project. CALAMITA/À is curated by Marina Caneve and Gianpaolo Arena.

CALAMITA/ÀOn the 6th of Nov 2015 I talk about my work as part of the CALAMITA/À workshop. For the full program, informations about the participants and the locality, please visit the CALAMITA/À workshop page.

“The CALAMITA/À project is a tool for investigating a territory which, through organized research, wishes to explore the changes in progress, generate questions, reveal critical points and attract interest and awareness concerning a crucial place that is still being defined. Territorial morphology, orography, infrastructure, architecture and social context are all elements for broadening the analysis. Art, sociology, urbanism and photography contribute to the definition of the project through an open, multidisciplinary approach. This plurality of visions is aimed at transforming the territory in question into a laboratory and space for privileged observation.” (text: CALAMITA/À web page)
