Kracow 2017 AD

Usually I don’t use as much processing but looking at my pictures from Cracow last year I felt inspired to work on them a bit. Especially interesting for me seemed the red colours of the historic buildings of the city and I searched for a way to bring them more to the front, wile giving the pictures at the same time a more classic black and white look. Three of them (pictures 1, 3, 4) show the Wawel, being the former castle hill of the Polish kings and an important national monument of the country.


Revisiting Lisbon: Convento Di Carmo

Having lived in Lisbon, Portugal for a couple of months I still missed out on some things. Revisiting the city in October of this year gave me the chance to catch up on these experiences. High on my bucket list was a visit of the ruins of the Convento Di Carmo, a former Catholic convent, which was destroyed in the infamous earthquake of 1755 leaving it in a state of decay for the next centuries. Today it’s open for visitors and offers a fascinating perspectives on Gothic architecture and evanescence.


Travelling Bosnia

This one is the last and final part of my series’ about travelling the country of Bosnia i Hercegovina in the heart of the Balkans. It is an interesting and still conflicted country, the remnants of the wars can still be seen and Bosnia remains divided. At the same time it is an immensely beautiful country with a stunning nature and rich history full of helpful and friendly people. And it is (as for now) a relatively cheap travel destination, very much recommandable to backpackers. The pictures below were shot in Mostar and Sarajevo.


Revisiting Lisboa Pt. I

During a winter few years ago I had the privilege to live in Lisboa (Lisbon), Portugal. Working a full time job I had the weekends off to discover the city, trying to capture the colours and the spirit of Lisboa on camera. I published the results on this website between late 2014 and early 2015. You’ll find a collection of the series’ right here. My piece about Azulejos, the traditional craft of manufacturing ceramic tiles, is still one of the most clicked articles on this website.

So two months ago I got to get back to the wonderful capital of Portugal once again for a few days and I fell in love again. As I used to do I took my camera bag and roamed freely around the city once again, revisiting parts of the town I already new but also discovering new places like the Convento di Carmo, an abandoned church I haven’t been to before. Of course you never take the same shot twice, there is always a new angle, a new perspective and in this case also a new camera and new lenses.

It felt like a direct continuations of what I did a couple of years before, like I would never have been away really. Also the weather was just perfect for photography in these last days of Iberian summer. I’ve spend some time to curate the new shots and make them into a couple of new series’, which I will release little by little during the following months.
