AGL sisters portrayed at König Galerie

In April 2016, the Italian luxury shoe brand AGL hosted a high-level dinner at Berlin’s leading art gallery, König Galerie.
AGL, Attilio Giusti Leombruni, is a family enterprise with a long tradition.
At that day, I had the pleasure to portrait the owners of the shoemaker, the Giusti sisters, for Women’s Wear Daily: 
From left to right: Sara, Vera and Marianna.  

The gallery is located in a monumental, former church building, St. Agnes, built in the 1960s in the Brutalist style. I decided to use this brutalism as the background for my photos. With the black and white style I pay tribute to the modern minimalist style of the 60s. 

 

 

reportage on Idealo employee cooking

This time I was sneaking into the spacious kitchen that Idealo offers for its employees to cook their own lunch.  
Idealo is a pretty successful internet-startup from the year 2000 that offers price comparison services.
In its current location in Berlin Kreuzberg it offers a proffesional kitchen and a herb and vegetable garden to its 650 employees. 
Check the inside.app for the publication.
Or have a look at how the idealos cook:

Nathini Van der Meer – fashion deconstruction

Women’s Wear Daily once again send me out to lense young and wild Berlin fashion designers. This summer, Nathini Van der Meer, was the target. I met the native Berlin girl while she was just de- and re-constructing her studio south of Kreuzberg. We took advantage of the scene and portrayed her together with her favorite model Nathalie. 

Nathalie wears a futuristic dark blue jumpsuit designed by Nathini. Combined with the designer’s own boots. 

portraits and insights from people from all over the world: Foodpanda’s managing directors

Foodpanda, a global food delivery marketplace headquartered in Berlin, asked me to produce a series of portraits of their country managers from all over the world.
We decided for a very casual outfit concept to show the young and down-to-earth attitude of the decision makers from over 20 countries.
To reduce heterogenity, I used a very minimalist but yet cosy studio setting.
At the end of May 2016, we had the chance to get all those managing directors in front of my camera, when Foodpanda held a global meeting in Berlin, Moabit. I had the chance to meet very interesting people from Pakistan, France, Malaysia, Hongkong, Indonesia, the Iberian Peninsula, Bangladesh, Egypt, the Arabic Peninsula, Italy, Greece, and many more countries. A very inspiring three days.
Many thanks to Kiki from Foodpanda for the superb organization, to Lucia to the highly professional h&m and to all the directors for their insights and stories!!!

The Hilton Brothers – artist portraits

The Hilton Brothers were in Berlin a while ago. They are an artist duo from NY that likes to dress up in ‘partner look’.
