Since I was born and raised in East Germany, or the GDR (German Democratic Republic), which was reunited with West Germany in 1989 and I formerly was - for instance - a so called "Jungpionier" during primary school and surrounded by Soviet influences, I am particular interested in the past of the UDSSR and their influence of our lifes in the GDR between the World War II and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and beyond. Even now (2016+) a lot of people are living in soviet like buildings which we call the "Platte" here in East Germany. I find it somehow fascinating that ... Continue reading →

sunset, lofoten, sunstar, fjord, moos, grass, lake, norwayBack in 2013, from mid-august to mid-september, we spent some weeks above the arctic circle on the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway.

The photo is mounted on a carrier plate made of aluminum and then glued with a thin layer of silicone, acrylic glass and thus sealed. With this form of sealing the photo is protected from UV radiation and other weather influences. Aluminum bars are mounted on the back so that the print floats 20mm off of the wall, appearing like a glass framed ... Continue reading →
