three’s a party

flyer-zbuv

well, i’m taking part in another group exhibition that kicks off next saturday! the fine young men with whom i have the honour of working are Ezequiel Hyon who shows some of his works with the cyanotype process and Nikolas Iturralde Graber showing pieces in abstract calligraphy on different surfaces. i of course will stay true to photography and will show some of my pictures from my loose series about the ostkreuz area in berlin friedrichshain.

the whole thing takes place in the bildersaal of the zukunft am ostkreuz, laskerstrasse 5 in berlin friedrichshain and the opening date of the exhibition not coincidentally coincides with the extraordinary sonne über berlin festival but is actually part of it! a big thank you goes out to the organisers of this fine marvel of a festival for letting us be a part of it.

the exhibition will be running until 8th of october and as far as i know it will be usually open during the opening times of the zukunft am ostkreuz itself.

so drop by, grab a tea and check it out!

this was taken with my sony a7 and the excellent samyang 35mm f2.8 pancake lens that i received (i.e. bought) right on time before our holiday in venice. it is a very light and small lens, the auto focus is fast and reliable so it’s quite a different lens than the notoriously slow and sometimes “focusing where no lens focused before” sony 50mm f1.8 that i nevertheless also like a lot. i have no complaints whatsoever regarding the samyang 35mm…  i think i could probably find some minor quibbles if i scrutinised the lens more thoroughly but i’m not in the mood because i really like using it ;-)

since this is the first 35mm prime i’ve really used it came as a little surprise for me that i really like the angle of view of a 35mm lens on full frame. i always was (and still am) a big fan of the panasonc lumix 20mm on my olympus e-p5, though, which comes quite close to the angle of view a full frame 40mm would provide. so maybe it’s actually no surprise at all :)
