Food & Faces

I knew there was something about Volker the first time I met him. He worked in BAERCK a wonderful store in Berlin Mitte back then. But I knew what connected us when I found out that he’s a self-taught chef and dedicated foodie (and besides that our fondness of spending Sundays in Panorama Bar).

Apart from having written and published a cook book already Volker now came up with his next great project “Food & Faces” [orig. "VOLKSSPEISUNG - Essen und Gesichter"]. He visits people in their homes, asks them to cook for him and then portraits them.

Here’s a sneak-peak of a recent session with a Majorcan (the German word for that is “mallorquinisch” – so beautiful!) fashion designer who studied at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and her German-born partner.

Feel free to send Volker an email on Facebook if you are curious to participate yourself.


Let us be kids!

I’ve always fancied Oliver Rath for his provocative pictures but I’m especially impressed by his project “Lasst Uns Kind Sein”.
In September Rath flew to Togo with the Team from the “RTL charity marathon” to document the project but also created a number of children portraits. Here are some of the photos. See the rest here.

The charity? He collected around €10.000 that will be used to finance an eye clinic in Lome.

“That’s what’s fascinating – the girls.”

Time to feature photographer and friend Autumn Sonnichsen. A wonderful person doing brilliant work – and with amazing cooking skills and a dynamite laugh. What more can you ask for?

Much more nudity here (also an “about” video with Autumn but everybody knows that sex sells, so…)

Photos via, Trip and google.

You got a spare room?

What I wouldn’t give to move into Helmut Newton’s universe…*dreaming*. Just for one day.

But I’ll have to settle for the book. And the exhibition that runs until November.
