Here again the Nighthawks/25 span> from the Discovery Art Fair 2019.
Background this Series is the deepseafrogfish. Inspired by an artistic depiction of such a fish, to which the artist had given a blue luminescence. The sight of this blue fish in the black deep sea has moved me a lot. And shortly thereafter, on a daily drive, I passed a petrol station. Everything suddenly fell to one, in its place: gas stations work like deep-sea fishing fish. They do not move but wait and they lure us with light. In addition, many more aspects and analogies are still present. The plan was born fast: filling stations, gas stations without people, petrol stations around, gas stations at night, gas stations in static, parallel lines.
I drove around for a month and had lonely gas stations at an hour later - And visited.
And with this recording here you can see what happens when you get too close to the frogfish: It opens its mouth and swallowed you .... Nachtschwärmer
A big THANK YOU to all collector and buyers of my art, which made the Discovery Art Fair a successful start into 2019! Ausstellungen.
The lighthouse is located on the island of Als in the south of Denmark. With this shot, I was lucky that the lighthouse was on the edge of a wheat field that had already been harvested. This and the sheltered position between hedges gave me the opportunity to work more concentrated: no wind bothered, for even the slightest breath tugs, albeit little, yet enough to bother on the lens. And in parallel I was able to move freely on the field: it had already been harvested. So all the photos taken together have more than 30 minutes of time, because to take the right distance, it is sometimes only necessary to move the head slightly forward or backward. The weather was beautiful, no clouds moved, so it was ONLY 30 minutes. Lighthouses
Spring appears and the cherry shows its soft white flowers. Bäume.
Frankfurt, the city with many banks. Not everyone has huge towers, they attract attention in other ways! Frankfurt
Seen from the palm garden, the lines of the building appear like the ups and downs of the stocks... Frankfurt.
Frankfurt's watchtowers and the Bockenheimer Warte
Sandtorhafen in Hamburg and then: Kehrwiederspitze
Because of a studiovisit I have been asked about pictures from Hamburg. Yes, do I have! But not yet in the WEB. So I selected some pictures! Have a look! Hamburg.
Be tuned. Come back later to see more!
Ghosts and temple: Köln
In Cologne there is a long tradition of Heinzelmännchen. Everyone is looking for them, and the legend tells them that they were driven out by exactly this search.
This narrative image of the Wroclaw square shows a well-attended place despite the late hour, which gives with its temple and the ghosts hope that the Heinzelmännchen are still to be found. Köln.

The exciting connection between movement and localisation Ligthhouses
This image of the northernmost building in Germany inspired me. In the accompanying text of the exhibition TheaterTheater you find:
I shall proceed from this with my investigation:
The working title of this project is: Ortswechsel
Look around from time to time, I travel across Europe again and again to capture spectacular images of lighthouses. Lighthouses.
Strom Invitation for exhibition Ausstellung Strom. I am very proud to show one work of mine in the exhibition "Strom" in Hilden, Germany.
"Stromengel/17" from 2013 has only been on show one time, but I got huge amount of feedback on it. I hope, there is also a lot of interest on this exhibition in Hilden!
Vernissage: 23.04.2017 at 15:00 in Hilden
QQArt - QQTec
Is it a house?
Or is it a fish? A fish with tinsel? Calatrava/10.
Lanterns and palmtrees
What can be "Lanternized"? Why not even a palmtree? Here is a particularly beautiful one. It is located in Valencia, more precisely at the sports boat harbor, right on the "Platja Del Cabanyal". Zwergpalme/7.
Blue Eye/18 This building in Valencia, called Hemisfèric, brought to this world by the creativity of Santiago Calatrava, does not look like this until evening. And also only from the outside!
My new passion: lighthouses. Here are the first versions of new, fascinating images to be found. The beginning is made by an unusual lighthouse from Öland: Kapelludden/6.
Nachtschwärmer/25 My work Nachtschwärmer/25 (Nighthawks/25) is one of a total of 84 exhibits in the exhibition on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Kontrastlab. Is on until 31.10.
Morsum Kirche/11 Morsum on Sylt, a small village often spared from the flood, but two world wars have great sacrifices demanded by the young men of the place...
Springvieh A snapshot. And inspiration for a new series?
140517/17-1 Santiago Calatrava has been supposedly inspired by a reclining woman to the design of main station from Liege. Here you can see the exit from the main building to one of the platforms. The roof flows seamlessly down and shows a continuous form. Do you recognize the rolling stairs?
Kina Slott/9 Another royal lantern. This time one from Stockholm, more precisely, from Drottningholm. In the park are countless of these lanterns, but this here is in the immediate vicinity of a "Kina Slott" called building.
Cologne, Subway: Wie räuhich ett ungen ess.../8.
An elevator ride from the very bottom to the very top....
Faydance/8 This time a picture, which can act and which shall act then without any words!
Sweden, Öland, Trollskog: Schiffswrack/19. In the far north of Öland, this wreck lies on the beach. It's been there for at least 60 years. And so has already become for generations of visitors to a sharp point, not only for a holiday but also for events with their children in connection with holidays on Öland.
Any visitor to the island knows this ship called Swix. And that it has sunk in a storm 90 years ago, had been lying for 30 years on a sandbar far off the island and was driven by another storm on the beach at Trollskog.
The shipwreck Swix: Reminder for countless people ...
Sweden, Baltic Sea, Harbour: Holzsegelschiff/43. Here is a picture of the new series in development. This image consists of 43 individual photographies, a rare stroke of luck.
And actually the picture transfers a good feeling, no more words are necessary.....
This day is my Birthday: 141130/11-1. And that's why I show you today another previously unpublished image from the Heumarkt Cathedral!
The trainstop at the lowest level has large light surfaces made of glass bricks. Here are eleven of these surfaces put together to form one picture.
For all foreigners: 11 in addition to the 3 is a number in the arms of the city of Cologne:
»Three crowns for the Holy Three Kings from the East«
»Eleven maidens accompanied Saint Ursula on her trip to Rome to beg the Pope for permission to marry a heathen«
This number eleven can be found in Cologne again and again. And I will show eleven stairs, or even eleven light surfaces.
Cologne, Central Station: Eigelstein/9. Due to recent events I show today an image from the series HBF blue. The Greek Dimitris Manolas operates the site "The Vanderbild" and has featured my pictures just today.
My pictures are shown anytime anywhere in the world by any blog, but this site is just not like the other monotony mash.
What does my picture Eigelstein/9 show?
It is the passage of the road Eigelstein under the tracks of the Central Station. For dove defense all these bridges in the immediate and wider environment of the central station are illuminated by this turquoise light. I have featured all these shades of blue in the area of the station and made a small series of it.
All images have been created at 6:30 in the morning.
All images have been taken right next to the Central Station.
Gas stations: Nachtschwärmer/25-1. Gas stations at night. Who cannot tell a story concerning a gas station.
I did not want to portray anything else than gas stations, gas stations at night, gas stations without people, gas stations without human artifacts in the environment. Solely: gas stations
. Since I have been showing my gas stations I've heard many, many stories where gas stations played an important role. Put one of the gas stations on your wall and listen to the stories of your visitors!
City, Underground: 140830/38. Light! What incredible effects can be produced even in secular buildings!
Near the ocean, on the beach: Schiffswrack/19. This time, a ship, and again one that is not in the water. But today it is a wreck on the beach.
And you will be surprised: This image will be part of a special edition, an exclusive edition with only a few pieces and each image is a serial unique!
