A sad day in German photography history: The big Volker Hinz passed away just shortly after he was nominated as a BFF honorary member. I was lucky to meet him recently for a BFF Master Tape where he talked with photographer Katja Ruge. What an impressive lifework of THE stern photographer.
During the BFF 50 years exhibition I've been honoured with the first BFF Film Award in the history of the German photographer association. I am very happy!
The shortfilm was made for and with the online blog tendaysaweek, which you can see here.
Thank you Tómas Cohen for your kind collaboration!

A snappy new trailer about the work of the Hear the World Foundation, which runs several projects around the world for hearing impaired kids.
This has been a very precious encounter! For the blog tendaysaweek I created a film and various stills of Tomás Cohen, an impressive chilean poet, based in Hamburg and Berlin. He is one of the heads of Hafenlesung, which takes place in Nachtasyl in Hamburg.
Read his interesting interview, which was made by Cris Sebiger-Bertram, founder, chief editorial manager and art director of tendaysaweek. I am very proud to be now part of her team. We love what we do! :)
By the way: this film is also shown at the travelling exhibition "50 Jahre BFF", which will take place in Hamburg from September, 20th to 29th. Be there or be square!

Another great assignment for the Hear the World Foundation, which supports a World Wide Hearing project for underserved Peruvian school kids. They already screened 31,000 children for hearing issues. More than 400 suffered from those unfortunately. They also found 3 siblings with hearing loss, which are now proud owners of brand new hearing aids. Watch it!
Watch the film Chrissi's , which we created for the group exhibition Aufschlag X of BFF (German Photographer Association).
