Strolling through Cologne with a Ricoh GR II during photokina, these photographs are straight out-of-camera. Amazing little gadget ;-)

Once again i joined an "Urban Photo Race" Event, this time in the city of Rotterdam. Six themes, 12 hours, more than 200 participants - it was a real to challenge to deliver 18 photographs and to stand out of the crowd. So that's why i am very proud to have won the 1st place with my interpretation of 'Metropolitan people'.
New York City, Tokyo, London, Paris, Istanbul - Street Photography has became a phenomenon around the world in the big places. But is it possible in a mid-sized town, too? Three colleagues and myself were invited to prove that even outside the mega-cities shooting on the street provides exciting photographs.
You can visit the exhibition "Das ist hier! Street Photography Cologne" until end of August at the Stadtmuseum Euskirchen near Cologne, Germany.
Second series coming from the Amsterdam Photo Race. People loving their clothes. Wearing them proudly on the city streets. Shot with 35mm and a daylight portable flash.
First of my series from the Amsterdam Urban Photo Race, that took place June 11th 2016. "Eye contact" was the first theme to shoot and i decided to do it in a different way: assuming the guards behind the surveilliance cameras had eye contact with me, but i could not see them staring at me.
Japanese photography has inspired me since i came in touch with the black-and-white high contrast work of Daido Moriyama. Based of his rough, blurry and out-of-focus style i started to shoot empty places in the shopping center of Cologne by night. But in contrast to the japanese masters i stay with color. Here are my first photographs from this beginning series.
I am still following my long term project "Unknown Persons" and i added this photograph to the series today. Hope you love it like i do.
I still love my project "Cabld Skies" and so i decided to work on these monochrome photos again. All of them were taken in Cologne early 2015.
Last weekend i travelled to London and visited some very interesting photography related exhibitions and galleries. The Alec Soth work at the Science Museum in particular inspired me and showed me once again, how important projects dedicated to one single theme or idea are. So i grabbed my camera and found this girl at Camden Lock and took a rather poetic photograph that fits well into my Unknown Person set.
Grey is the dominant color of urban streets in November. But if you look into the colorful windows you will find colors that are brighten up the autumn's world.
