Another Tumblr? Ohhhh yezz! But this one is special. It’s about my own photography only. I don’t know why I didn’t decide to do this earlier next to my snapshot Iphone Travel and pivate tumblrs, but I really already love it! It’s great to scroll through more than 40k pictures in my Lightroom library and find more and more pics I like and present them in this ongoing collage! Make sure to follow me over there and watch out for new pictures on a regular update!

In the last years New York City somehow got my most visited city outside of Berlin. I mean I have been there more often than in my hometown or any other city in Germany or Europe. I won’t call it my second home but whenever I arrive there I feel like being back to a place I know very well. I enjoy diving into this metropolis, visit my friends and the neighborhoods I love hanging out. I don’t have the tourist view anymore (just whenever I ride the J or N train over Manhattan or Williamsburg Bridge), I don’t need to go sightseeing and when I move through the city I feel very “New Yorkian” . So I also recognized that in terms of my photography I am not interested in picturing the obvious anymore. I am more likely searching for my personal New York moments, people I meet or that are catching my attention in the streets. I think breaking a city down it very much comes to those people living in this city and the small impessions you get on the corners of your neighborhood. I hope you like the pictures. Read more…
Even though planes got my second home in the last years I will never loose the fascination for the incredible view onto our beautiful earth. I just love the geometrical shapes, the graphical play, the light, the water, the ice, the clouds. I took these pictures on my last journey through the United States. I have even more videos of these views and I’ll maybe cut them together whenever I will have time someday. Read more…
After 2 weeks on the road through the United States I spent my Saturday night with some nice Puerto Rican women in the Laundry on 5th Ave and Union St in Brooklyn. Read more…
I guess I have never seen a city like Detroit. Away from the Business we have been there for Nico and me where exploring the city and of course couldn’t withstand to go to some places where probably most people wouldn’t set foot in. It’s a city with a big history and a city that got hit like no other! It’s a place where a concept failed and millions of people lost the foundations of their life! At the same time it’s a place to dream of. A chance to grow again and make it better this time. We are curious about the way Detroit will go but we are definitely sure that this wasn’t our last visit! Read more…
I was always curious about the different styles in different cities and before the WWW you could clearly make a difference between them. With the start of the Blog Era and the democratization of the media everything became a big melting pot and Style isn’t connected to certain area or city anymore. The period of a style travelling from one city or country to another became irrelevant because it is just one mouse click away now.
I accept that and I still like to scroll through some cool Street Style blogs to get my dose of inspiration (even though Tumblr is my number one hit). But the most important thing for me is the STREET in Street Style. I wanna see everyday people with a sense of style, getting dressed up not to show themself in front of a camera, but because it’s their way of expressing themself even tough they just go to the cornershop to buy cigarettes. This is the essence of Street Style.
What happens lately in front of the international fashion shows is just a big fake and has nothing to do with Street Style anymore. Now this short documentary by the guys of Garage Magazine reflects exactly this phenomenon and takes a look towards the other side of the picture.
Last November I was invited to travel to the caribbean island of Curacao together with Clemens, Katja and Bonnie. It was a very nice trip and I tried to digg deep in the islands mysteries. See the whole article over at FindingBerlin.
Here are some of my favourite pictures I took over there next to a video we produced and that will be released soon.
Fuck. I think you might think that I went crazy and have nothing to do at all. And maybe you’re right and you can call me a digital “Messie” but I love to collect all that stuff I find online. The “Favourite” Button is developed for me!! I swear it’ s the first thing I look out for on your website. When I like something I wanna keep it or at least know where I can find it when I want to see or listen to it again (Spotify – my godess!) And I hate fucking YouTube for deleting Videos I had in my collection! It’ s like a punch in my face!
The worst thing that could happen is that I forget to save something somewhere. And with “saving” I don’t mean downloading. I hate full HardDrives but therefore I love the Cloud! Saving it online and watching, listening or looking at everything you like from everywhere – Best Ever! And – Worst Ever! Fuck they got my Ass! And I already cry me into bed because I know that someday they will charge me for this or shut down their business because of some stupid new laws! OMFG! I have to save everything right now to CD’ s or something! Double BackUp that shit!!
Anyway. Until these dark apocalypse of data I’m glad I can do it and when you may watch TV or something I scroll through my endless libraries of favourites.
So when it comes to collecting the Tumblr is KING! I love it and I always have the T-Tab open to check out the stream. It’s the ultimate timeline of style and I think it influences me more than any advertising could ever do! I know that but I can’ t do anything against it. Today I have about 9 different Tumblr’ s I collect pictures in. Some are very old and some I just released. These are 5 of them:
DT64 – The OG!
DT64 was my first Tumblr and I started it before 2 years. It was an aesthetical experiment to find out which pictures I like and why. It grew and grew and today I use it as a moodboard to describe Photo- and Videoideas to friends and clients. Originally it was inspired by my friends of Haw-Lin but over the time it got it’ s own style and I got interested in the change of my perception. I figured out that over the time I liked less and less pictures in my stream but every picture I blog I would reblog again. I like that. And so it became the most concious Tumblr I have. Nothing is a coincidence.
Gigolos Get Lonely Too.
A couple of years ago I got a gold chain by my friends with a gravure saying Gigolos Get Lonely Too. I know what they wanted to tell me and I know that they do. I think this is the gayest Tumblr I have.
A’MILLION is a partyseries we host in Berlin focusing on Rap and Bass music. The Tumblr ist quite new and I collect shots and videos that relate to the spirit of the partys and our wannabe black side. I already recognized I love gold in this context.
Next to the official FindingBerlin website I started the tumblr to collect shots of Berlin that run through stream. We will use it more in the near future to throw out own snapshots of berlin as well.
The Minimal is just a small project I started because I started stumbling over real minimal pictures with nice colors or transfers. They are like calm oases in the Tumblr Overkill. I also like to see them arranged next to each other.
Alejandro Cartagena catched construction workers in the morning traffic in the mexican city of Monterrey.
In front of The Standard Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles last week.
See some pictures of Stefan and me hanging out in Napoli before a couple of weeks. It was a great time with a lot of intense experiences. You can´t have more Italy down there with all it´s good and bad sides. The whole story you´ll find at Finding Berlin.
I took some picture at Elisa´s Poetry eve at lovely Kunstapotheke in Weichselstr. for FindingBerlin.
