FASHION SHOOT FOR SIMONE ROCHA
The internationally renowned and award-winning Irish fashion designer Simone Rocha is known for being inspired by romanticism, femininity and playfulness when it comes to her unique designs. I interpreted and captured these themes in form of digital photography in Hamburg.
Car Week 2022
STILL LIFES IN CALIFORNIA
Monterey Car Week is one of the world's most vibrant car festivals and a celebration of passion for automobiles. It takes place near the town of Carmel-by-the-Sea and the fearsome Laguna Seca race circuit. Every August, for one week, the area, transforms into any petrol head's nirvana, with events such as the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering and the Motorlux jet Center event.
This series portrays Monterey's Car Week and a combined trip to southern California through my lens.
GP ICE RACE 2022
A PHOTOSERIES CAPTURING MOMENTS BEHIND THE 2022 GP ICE RACE MEDIA EVENT
A celebration of motorsports in its most suave and genuine state, the GP Ice Race is where manufacturers, professionals and hobbyists come to race on an artificially constructed ice rink, deliberately losing just enough grip to make it reckless and sporty, while maintaining just enough control to be safe. Combining the art of drifting, automotives and of course pure passion.
Please enjoy the spectacle through my lens!
The Lingotto Series
BREATHTAKING ANALOG IMAGES THAT WERE TAKEN ON ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS TEST TRACKS IN THE WORLD: THE LINGOTTO
All of the photographs are framed to measure using a lightweight black aluminium frame in combination with non reflective glass. This Series is one of a kind and combines the beauty of the Artdeco architecture of the Lingotto in Turin, Italian and German automotive design as well as the art of analog and digital photography.
Please enjoy the spectacle!
The Series of the Yellowbird
A SERIES OF BREATHTAKING IMAGES CAPTURING THE SOUL OF THE RUF YELLOWBIRDS
The RUF CTR debuted in 1987. Capable of incredible speed, the 469-bhp twin-turbo CTR reached 342 km/h (213 mph) during testing on the Nardo Ring, a shocking speed for its time that is still impressive to this day. It was in the same year that RUF gained approval from the U.S. National Highway Transportation Safety Administration and Environmental Protection Agency to sell its cars in America. Shortly thereafter, Alois Ruf brought the car to Road & Track’s “World’s Fastest Car” competition at Volkswagen’s Ehra-Lessien test track in Germany.
The CTR was one of nine cars in attendance including a Ferrari Testarossa, a Lamborghini Countach 5000S and a Porsche 959.
The photographers from Road & Track noticed how the CTR’s bright paintwork stood out against the coincidentally dull weather and gave it the nickname “Yellow Bird.” What happened next would contribute to making that name stick forever.
This car for me however has a much more personal connection.
Being able to vividly see and participate in the production of a project that is very dear to my father has been immaculate. To learn about all the incredible amount of work, time, and passion that has been put into the CTR Anniversary makes the 710hp car more than an exclusive history bearing vehicle, it makes the inanimate object feel like family. Every detail of the car embodies what Ruf Automobile stands for:
German engineering, authenticity, grace and individuality.
I decided to dedicate this series to the two Yellowbirds, the one from 1987 and the the one from 2017 to bring the work of art that they are into your art collection.
