Café I

Café I There was a time when I really liked to go there, Rokko Ice Saloon at Kutschkermarkt. However, the seats are orange and ugly now, and the place is less charming on the second glance. Because basically it is a noisy and greyish venue, with air “enhanced” from Gentzgasse and the sun hiding behind [---]

Die Bar I

Die Bar I The bar is closed now and I won’t miss it for sure. But the mirror and back lit bottles … This was shot on 400 Film (TriX or Apx, not sure) in the lovely Yashica Electro GSN. I think the lens had some magic, especially at night at 1.7. The neg is slightly [---]

Das gute Leben

Das gute Leben This is a photo from a wedding that ticked some box inside my head. I wanted to see it on paper and decided that it would be perfect for the frequent print exercise: not part of a series; no special meaning; just liked by me; For printing, this photo is a tough [---]

Spontane Ruhe vor Straßenbahn

Spontane Ruhe vor der Straßenbahn I think that was around winter ’05/’06 at the tram stop Spitalgasse / Wärhingerstrasse. Focus was by Zen, and I think so everything came together nicely. Looking at the print on RC paper, I am not quite sure if I like the result, will have to try that on fibre. [---]

Vehikel I

Vehikel I Posting the outcome of a print exercise online as compressed digital pictures is, well, kind of paradox. But even though a web image cannot convey the feeling that a print transports, there is more to this exercise than visual and tactile joy of printing and holding and looking at a print. Namely, dealing [---]

Schlitten mit Phantasie

A pile of pixels on a screen is not a photograph – at all. It is cold light emerging from a flat surface giving the illusion of a photograph, at least as long as you don’t compare it to a print on paper. I knew that (and know it better after each new print), still I was far too lazy to regularly print my work, even though I have a decent inkjet printer.

Maybe a mayor obstacle to the habit of regular printing is the pure possibility to browse through the archive on screen.

Lonely on the tramLonely on the tram

Oder warum Kunst und Leben nicht planbar sind Seit Type O Negative cool waren, ist “Christmas Mourning” für mich untrennbar mit den Weihnachtsfeiertagen verbunden. Diesmal wollte ich meinen eigenen künstlerischen Beitrag leisten, die stille Zeit ästhetisch ausschlachten. Über Weihnachten im allgemeinen möchte ich dabei gar nicht viele Worte verlieren; es nicht zu mögen, den Konsum [---]

A Little Alliteration A new week began with a dull monday, after seven days hammered themselves through our eyes, ears and brains with strong intensity. We left Maksimilian’s kitchen cabinet empty of chamomile (kamilica), we left Osijek with mixed feelings and Osijek saw us off with ice-cold rain and wind. It was just the perfect [---]

Catch-Pop String-Strong In Urania Cinema How often does an announcement start with the words “last but not least”, and one never knows how sincere the inention of the speaker is? So I have to express my enthusiasm much more strongly. The duo Catch-Pop String-Strong is simply awesome, and these two mundane Ladies brought every bit [---]

Two And A Half Days Concisely In the first entry about this week in Osijek I got the feeling that I am reporting a sunny shiny relaxing vacation. And partly that hits the point, but there were occasions where we literally vanished from the scene to prepare my photos for display. Thanks to everyone who [---]
