spent a few beautiful days deep in the alps in italy as a finalist for the south tyrol media prize. i remembered that the night sky is much deeper without street-lit city-soup. and that mountains feel pretty amazing when i walk on them. and that it’s a gift to meet people who invite you in. story will be posted after the judges’ decision in spring. photo by reporter fritz habekuß who is also pretty darn good with the camera. happy times.
about a no man’s land, a piece of dreamy earth, a few villagers on the german-polish border. nowa amerika, an idea of a place.
bad news for the german infrastructure: years of little upkeep have created old and dilapidated roads, bridges, waterways and train tracks.
Giulia Sergi, 26, is from Manduria, Italy, and has been living in Berlin for two years. She has a Master’s degree in international business studies and recently lost her job as a marketing manager at a startup. She says she would like to return to Italy if she found a job with a salary she would be able to live on. Sergi poses for a portrait at the apartment she shares with her roommate.

on a drive near ulaanbaatar back in september.
I visited Maren Ade at her house in Berlin for a quick portrait shoot. She was selected one of 20 directors to watch by the New York Times. Story here.
