a supposedly fun thing

i’ve visited the olympus perspective playground in berlin. it’s a very laudable advertising campaign that olympus launched in several (european) cities since 2013. you get to visit places that are usually not publicly accessible (like the opernwerkstätten or in this case the heizkraftwerk in köpenicker strasse) and you get to use gear that usually is publicly accessible but of course only if you have the correct pocket size. the entry is free and you can see (and photograph) the works of young artists in cool and colourful plastic art and meet other like-minded photographers.

this time i tried the brandnew olympus e-m10 mk III and it seems to be a very capable camera. a lot of these pictures where shot with iso6400 and they hold up quite well. nevertheless the camera did not trigger any g.a.s. in me. i guess i’ll still have to wait for a potential successor of my trusty e-p5 which unluckily would happen to be the successor of the pen-f, too, so probably much too expensive anyway. but i digress.

next time the playground comes to town i’ll do it again :)

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!

* the title ‘zwischen beeilen und verweilen’ can probably be translated as ‘between haste and lingering’
