Your Delight and My Delight https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/12/our-delight In English

Seit 2015 arbeite ich an der Serie "The Color Codes". Die Arbeiten zu dieser Serie entstehen in Phasen. Es kommen immer mal wieder Phasen, in denen die Motive für die Serie "zu mir kommen". Dann muss ich alles stehen und liegen lassen und dem Wunsch der Motive nachgeben und mich ausschließlich IHNEN widmen.

So war es auch mit diesen beiden Werken. "My Delight" und "Your Delight".  

Ich war auf dem Heimweg von einem Shoot. Die Kamera hatte ich bei mir und wollte einfach bei meinem "Blumenmann" noch ein paar Blumen kaufen. Als ich den Laden betrat war ich alleine und sah die Orchideen in der Ecke stehen. Magisch angezogen, musste ich mich ihnen sofort widmen, das heißt Fotos von Ihnen machen. Mein "Blumenmann" hat seinen Laden in einer Berlin U-Bahn-Station. Es ist also nicht besonders hell und das vorhandene Licht ist etwas fieses Kunstlicht. Das sind definitiv nicht die besten Voraussetzungen für Makroaufnahmen. Aber ich hatte ja mein "Besteck" dabei, war alleine im Laden und stellte daher kurz mein Stativ auf und machte mich ans Werk. Dabei vergaß ich komplett die Zeit und vor allem auch wo ich war. Jetzt muss ich dazu sagen dass ich bei diesem "Blumenmann" seit Jahren meine Blumen kaufe. Wir sprechen zwar nicht die selbe "Sprache-Sprache", aber wir sprechen die gleiche Sprache. So stand ich also gedankenverloren in seinem Laden und habe Aufnahmen von Orchideen gemacht - mit Stativ und Makro. Ich weiß nicht, wie lange das alles ging, aber irgendwann hatte ich meine Aufnahmen gemacht, war zufrieden und merkte vor allem wieder wo ich war. Vermutlich war ich schon lange nicht mehr alleine im Laden, denn als ich mich umdrehte, sah ich einen etwas verdutzten Blumenmann hinter der Theke stehen, der nicht so richtig wusste, was er jetzt damit anfangen soll, dass ich in seinen Laden komme und drauflos fotografiere. Ich habe dann einfach die Blumen gekauft, die ich kaufen wollte - über meine Fotosession haben wir nicht geredet. Wir sprechen ja nicht die selbe "Sprache-Sprache", hätte also eh' nichts gebracht darüber zu reden. Er war froh, dass ich noch Blumen gekauft habe und ich war froh, dass er mich nicht beim Fotografieren gestört hat. 

Die Aufnahmen sind zu meinen "All-Time-Favorite-Werken" der Serie geworden. "My Delight" und "Your Delight" jeweils 180 x 120 cm auf ChromaLuxe.   

 

--------------kkk

Since 2015 I am working on the series "The Color Codes". The work on this series is created in phases. There are always phases in which the motifs for the series "come to me". Then I have to stop everything and give in to the desire of the motives and devote myself exclusively to THEM.


So it was with these two works. "My Delight" and "Your Delight".
 

I was on my way home from a shoot. I had the camera with me and just wanted to buy a few flowers from my "flower man". When I entered the shop I was alone and saw the orchids standing in the corner. Magically attracted, I had to devote myself to them immediately, that is to take pictures of them. My "flower man" has his shop in a Berlin subway station. So it is not very bright and the existing light is a nasty artificial light. These are definitely not the best conditions for macro shots. But I had my "cutlery" with me, was alone in the shop and therefore set my tripod briefly and got to work. I completely forgot the time and especially where I was. I have to mention that I have been buying flowers from this "flower man" for years. We do not speak the same "language-language", but we speak the same language. So I stood lost in thought in his shop and took photos of the orchids - with tripod and macro. I do not know how long that went, but at some point I was done with the photos remembered where I was. Probably I have not been alone in the store for quite a while, because when I turned around, I saw a somewhat bemused flower man standing behind the counter, who did not really know what he should think about what he saw. Me entering his shop and taking photos of his orchids. So I just ingnored the situation and did what I originally came for - buying flowers. We did not talk about my photo session. He was glad that I had bought flowers and I was glad that he did not disturb me when taking pictures.
 

The photos I took at his shop have become my "All-Time-Favorite-Works" of the series. "My Delight" and "Your Delight" each 180 x 120 cm on ChromaLuxe.

East Side Gallery Berlin https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/10/east-side-gallery-berlin Die East Side Gallery Berlin ist das längste zusammenhängende und noch erhaltene Mauerstück der ehemaligen Mauer zwischen Ost- und West-Berlin. 1990 wurde dieses Mauerstück auf Initiative der beiden Künstlerverbände VBK (DDR) und BBK (BRD) von 129 Künstlern aus 20 Ländern bemalt. 

Nach der letzten Renovierung im November 2009 habe ich die frisch renovierte East Side Gallery in über 450 Einzelaufnahmen fotografiert und aus den Einzelaufnahmen ein zusammenhängendes Panoramafoto mit beeindruckenden Dimensionen erstellt: 655.000 x 3.500 Pixel - oder anders ausgerückt, das Foto könnte mit einer Breite von 110 Metern noch in Fine Art Qualität ausgedruckt werden.

Aus dem Panoramafoto habe ich eine 20minütige Video-Installation erstellt, die den Eindruck eines Spaziergangs entlang der East Side Gallery vermittelt. Für die musikalische Begleitung wollte ich etwas Besonderes und habe daher eine international besetzte Berliner Band gebeten, Musik für dieses Video zu komponieren. Alle Songs wurden im Funkhaus Berlin, dem ehemaligen Sitz des „Rundfunks der DDR“, aufgenommen.

 

Die Geschichte der East Side Gallery

Walter Ulbricht sagt am 15. Juni 1961, dass niemand die Absicht hat, eine Mauer zu errichten. Zwei Monate später beginnen die Arbeiten zum Bau der Berliner Mauer. Eine Mauer, die fortan nicht nur die beiden deutschen Staaten, sondern auch die Völker der Welt trennt. Eine Mauer an der zwischen 1961 und 1989 mindestens 138 sterben.

Am 9. November 1989 fällt die Mauer. 

Im Dezember 1989 schlagen die beiden Künstlerverbände VBK (DDR) und BBK (BRD) dem DDR Ministerrat das Projekt „East Side Gallery“ vor. 

Ab Januar 1990, keine zwei Monate nach dem Fall der Mauer, beginnen die ersten Künstler die ehemalige Mauer zwischen Ost und West zu bemalen. 

Es ist eine Ironie des Schicksals, dass die Eröffnung der East Side Gallery eine der letzten Amtshandlungen des Ministerrats der DDR ist. Die East Side Gallery wird am 28. September 1990 eröffnet - am 3. Oktober 1990, also nur fünf Tage später, ist die DDR Geschichte und die beiden deutschen Staaten sind wiedervereint.

Eine Mauer, welche jahrelang die Völker der Welt trennte, vereint nun die Völker der Welt über die Kunst. Bis zu 10.000 Besucher pro Tag sehen sich dieses 1316 Meter lange Originalmauerstück und internationales Geschichts- und Kunstmonument an. 

Nach Presseangaben wurden auf 'Wunsch' eines Investors 2013 Teile der East Side Gallery abgerissen. Es ist eine weitere Ironie des Schicksals, dass dieser Investor, ebenso nach Presseangaben, zu DDR-Zeiten ein „IM“ war - ein inoffizieller Mitarbeiter des DDR-Ministeriums für Staatssicherheit.

System change https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/9/system-change Noch ein paar Gedanken zum weltweiten Klimastreik vom vergangenen Freitag.

Als ich durch die Reihen der vielen Menschen und ihren Plakate geschaut habe, ist mir noch mehr bewusst geworden, dass es bei der Bewegung "Fridays for Future" um mehr geht als "nur" um das Abschalten von Kohlekraftwerken, den Stopp von Energiegewinnung aus fossilen Energiequellen, Verringerung des CO2-Ausstosses, usw. es geht um viel mehr. Denn einhergehend mit konsequenten Maßnahmen zu den Forderungen der Bewegung "Fridays for Future" würde auch ein Systemwandel unumgänglich sein. Es ist nicht nur die Erde die kränkelt, auch wir Menschen leiden unter den Konsequenzen des globalen Wirtschaftssystems. Auch hier braucht es eine Erneuerung. Ich weiß, das ist ein weiter Weg und sehr viele Hindernisse sind dabei zu überwinden, aber jede Reise beginnt mit dem ersten Schritt... und wenn viele Menschen unterwegs sind, dann ist es immer gut wenn jemand vorneweg geht. In diesem Fall ist es ein 16 jähriges Mädchen mit klaren Visionen.

Und damit zurück zum vergangenem Freitag - ich habe alle Generationen vor dem Brandenburger Tor gesehen. Und vielleicht sogar in gleicher Verteilung. Greta geht also nicht nur vor Kindern und Jugendlichen - alle Generationen haben sich angeschlossen.

A bird with no name https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/9/Flying-beside-a-bird-with-no-name A bird with no name

After two days of sailing into the blueAfter two days of sailing into the blue

I took this series of photos when I had a minor injury and couldn't leave the house for two days. So I took my camera and sat on the roof terrace of the appartement where I stayed, listened to music and enjoyed the scenery. And I took photos - photos of all the birds that flew by. The last three photos of this series I took two days later at the beach, on "healthy feet" again. 

__________________________________________________________________________

One of the birds told me this.

Honestly
or.... maybe I just fell asleep under the hot sun, on the hot roof terrace with the music of "America" and a dream whispered all this into my ear.

_______________________________

Der Anfang

Von Zeit zu Zeit werde ich gefragt, was es mit dieser Serie auf sich hat oder wie denn die Originale aussehen. In den folgenden 9 Posts sollen möglichst alle Fragen geklärt werden. 

Palamedes' Full MoonPalamedes' Full Moon
(Vollmond über dem Ägäischen Meer, nicht über dem Bodensee)

Es begann alles mit einem Foto vom Vollmond über dem schönen Bodensee und dem Kauf eines eigenen Vergrößerungsgerätes. Mit diesem Vergrößerer habe ich in der Dunkelkammer die ersten Versuche mit Vergrößerungen bei gleichzeitiger Verzerrung unternommen (eben mit dem Foto vom Vollmond am Bodensee und in schwarzweiss).
 



Was damals, zu analoger Zeit, noch sehr aufwendig war ist heute deutlich einfacher und so habe die Arbeit an dem Projekt 2015, wieder anlässlich eines Vollmondes, neu aufgenommen.

In unserer hektischen Zeit wollte ich mit dieser Serie eine Oase der Ruhe schaffen. Weg von den 'gewohnten' Bildern mit denen wir täglich überflutet werden, aber dennoch Motive aus dem Alltag. Motive, die uns ständig umgeben, wenn wir uns die Zeit nehmen hinzusehen...

How it all began

From time to time, I am asked what this series is all about or what the originals of the series look like. I hope to answer all questions with the following 9 posts. 

Palamedes' Full MoonPalamedes' Full Moon
(Full moon over the Aegean Sea)

It all started with a photo of the full moon over the beautiful Lake Constance and the purchase of my own emlarger. I began to work with it and made my first attempts in the darkroom with enlargements and distortions (just with the photo of the full moon on Lake Constance in black and white).
 

What was at that (analogous) time still very time consuming and complicated is much easier today. I have restarted to work on the project in 2015, again on the occasion of a full moon.

In our hectic times I wanted to create an oasis of peace with this series. Away from the 'usual' pictures we are flooded with daily, but still motifs from everyday life. Motives that surround us constantly when we take the time to look...

The Color Codes - part 2 of 9 (Sardinian Bud) https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/7/TheColorCodes-part2 Please see below for the English text or click here. 
_______________________________

Die künstlerische Betrachtung


("Sardinian Bud" - ChromaLuxe Metal Print 133 x 100 cm mit Artbox-Rahmung € 1.440,- )

In dieser Serie werden die Schönheiten, die uns ständig umgeben, mittels extremer Vergrößerung, als großformatige Fine Arts Prints präsentiert. Das Kleine und durch die gewohnte Betrachtungsweise vielleicht Unbeachtete, wird somit groß, raumfüllend und energiereich gezeigt.   

Wenn wir Fotos betrachten, machen wir das 'formgebunden'. Wir sehen das Foto einer Tulpe und sehen - eine Tulpe. Das Foto einer Tulpe weckt bei jedem Betrachter  ganz bestimmte Assoziationen. Jeder hat schon einmal eine Tulpe gesehen und hat damit seine ganz persönlichen Erfahrungen mit Tulpen, gut oder schlecht, so oder so, aber immer an die Form des dargestellten, immer an die Form der Tulpe gebunden. Dies gilt für alles was wir betrachten - wir verbinden die Form dessen was wir sehen, mit unseren eigenen Erfahrungen und unsere eigenen Assoziationen werden geweckt. Kann man dies umgehen? Vermutlich nicht, denn beim Betrachten einer Tulpe wird unweigerlich die  'Meine-Erfahrungen-mit-Tulpen-Schublade' geöffnet. Dies birgt leider auch die Gefahr, dass man seine Erfahrungen mit Tulpen als 'abgeschlossen' betrachtet und damit vielleicht keinen Raum für neue Erfahrungen mit der Tulpe lässt. 

Mit der Serie 'The Color Codes' soll die ''Meine-Erfahrungen-mit-xyz-Schublade' möglichst geschlossen bleiben und somit Raum für Neues im Gewohnten geschaffen werden. Losgelöst von den formgebundenen und persönlichen Assoziationen zum dargestellten Objekt sollen die Motive beim Betrachter auf eine möglichst weiße Leinwand gezeichnet und nicht in ein zuvor gemaltes Bild eingefügt werden. Dies bietet dann die Chance, für einen Moment los zulassen, den Geist ruhen zu lassen, um ihn dann auf eine spontane Reise zu schicken.

Um dies zu erreichen, wird vom fotografierten Objekt weitgehend die eigentliche Form durch extreme und verzerrte Makro-Vergrößerung entfernt. Der Vergrößerungsfaktor ist immer mindestens 100-fach, manchmal aber auch über 1000-fach. So wird im Gewohnten etwas Neues sichtbar, neue Formen und neue Nuancen von Farben, oder einfach nur die Schönheit von etwas, was man ohne die extreme Vergrößerung nicht, oder eben nur im Kontext der eigenen Erfahrungen, betrachtet hätte.

Ich habe diese Technik schon in ähnlicher Form vor Jahren, damals noch analog und in der Dunkelkammer, angewendet. Die Digitalfotografie öffnet dieser Technik natürlich deutlich mehr Möglichkeiten. Aber egal ob analog oder digital, die Eckpunkte und Grundsätze für diese Technik bleiben natürlich die selben. So eignet sich nicht jedes Motiv für diese Technik. Neben dem Motiv spielt auch nach wie vor, analog oder digital,  die Aufnahmetechnik eine entscheidende Rolle - offene oder geschlossene Blende, Schärfeebene, knackige Schärfe oder leichte bis starke Unschärfe und vieles mehr führt nach der Entwicklung immer zu drastisch unterschiedlichen Ergebnissen. Und noch etwas bleibt immer gleich - das Ergebnis kann nach wie vor nicht vorhergesagt werden. Zum Zeitpunkt der Aufnahme kann man nur erahnen, was am Ende des Entwicklungsprozesses herauskommen wird. Was jedoch immer gleich bleibt - wenn der Moment der Aufnahme und die Energie des Momentes eine besondere war, dann ist das Ergebnis auch nach der Entwicklung ein besonderes. 
(Anm.: Wenn in diesem Text 'Betrachter' steht, so sind damit gleichermaßen Frauen, Männer und Menschen dritten Geschlechts gemeint.)


Jetzt wurde so viel über DIESE Tulpen gesprochen, es wird Zeit DIESE Tulpen anzusehen.

The artistic reflection



In this series, the beauties that surround us all the time are presented by means of extreme magnification, as large-scale Fine Arts Prints. The small and by the usual way of viewing perhaps unobserved, is thus shown large, space-filling and energetic.

When we look at photos, we mostly do it in a way linked to the form of the object. We see the photo of a tulip and see - a tulip. The photo of a tulip awakens certain associations with every observer. Everyone has already seen a tulip and thus has his own personal experience of tulips, good or bad, either way, but always tied to the shape of the tulip. This applies to everything we look at - we connect the shape of what we see, with our own experiences and our own associations are awakened. Can this behavoir be avoided? Probably not, because looking at a tulip inevitably opens the 'My-Experiences-With-Tulips-Drawer'. Unfortunately, this also runs the risk of considering his experiences with tulips as 'completed' and thus perhaps leaving no room for new experiences with the tulip.

With the series 'The Color Codes', the '' My-Experiences-With-XYZ-Drawer '' should be kept closed, creating space for the new in the familiar. Detached from the 'shape-bound' and detached from personal associations with the object, the photos in this series are meant to be drawn on a white screen  and not pasted into a previously painted picture. This then provides a chance to let go for a moment, to let the mind rest, and then to send it on a spontaneous journey.

To achieve this, the actual form was largely removed from the photographed object by extreme and distorted macro-magnification. The magnification factor is always at least 100 times, but sometimes over 1000 times. Thus something new becomes visible in the familiar, new forms and new nuances of colors, or simply the beauty of something that one would not have considered without extreme enlargement, or only in the context of one's own experiences.

I have already used this technique in similar form years ago, then analog and in the darkroom. Of course, digital photography opens up much more possibilities for this technique. But whether analogue or digital, the key points and principles  are of course the same. So not every motive is suitable for this technique. In addition to the subject, the camera settings also play a decisive role - open or closed aperture, focal plane, crisp sharpness or slight to strong blur and much more leads to drastically different results after development. And one more thing is always the same - the result can still not be predicted. At the time of the exposure, one can only guess what will come out at the end of the development process. However, whatever remains the same - if the moment of the shot and the moment's energy were special und unique, then the final work is also special and unique.
(Note: 'His' in this text means equally women, men, and third-gender people.)
 

Now we heard so so much about THE tulip, let's have a look at THE tulip.

Die Tulpen

Dieses Foto von einem Strauß Tulpen habe ich auf einem Blumenmarkt gemacht. Meine Faszination ging von den kräftigen Farben und vor allem von der Farbkombination aus - saftiges Grün, mit kräftigem Rot, kräftigem Gelb und Orange und dazu noch die leicht überbelichteten Stellen, die weiß sind.

This is a photo of a bunch of tulips I took at a flower market. My fascination came from the strong colors and especially the color combination - luscious green, with strong reds, strong yellows and orange and the slightly over-exposed areas that are white.

Original

Es müssen nicht immer Pflanzen sein. Dieses Foto habe ich für den in Berlin lebenden Künstler 'Heimatlosevolkskunst aka Kenno Apatrida' (Apatrida auf spanisch: Heimatlos) erstellt. Das Foto von einer seiner Installationen entstand in seinem Atelier - damals im Keller einer ehemaligen Brauerei. Das besondere an dem Foto ist, wie auch bei allen anderen Fotos dieser Serie, daß es mit einer Taschenlampe belichtet wurde. Das heißt der Kameraverschluss war mehrere Minuten geöffnet und ich bin im Atelier 'umhergewandert' und habe alles sozusagen von Hand belichtet.

It does not always have to be plants. This photo was made for the Berlin based artist 'Heimatlosevolkskunst aka Kenno Apatrida' (Apatrida in spanish: homeless). The photo of one of his installations was taken in his studio - at the time in the cellar of a former brewery. The special thing about the photo is, as with all other photos in this series, that it was exposed with a torch. That is, the camera shutter was open for several minutes and I 'wandered around' in the studio and have everything exposed by hand.

Fine Art Prints

Die Werke der Serie "The Color Codes" sind als Fine Art Prints in verschiedenen Größen aber immer als limitierte Auflauge erhältlich.

Entwicklung und Kaschierung der Werke hatte dabei zwei Hauptaugenmerke:

1. Die Werke sollten nicht nur in kleinen Formaten als hochwertige Fine Art Prints zur Verfügung stehen, sondern auch als großformatige Drucke in der gleichen Qualität (so hat beispielsweise das bisher größte Werk eine Größe von 500 x 308 cm)

2. Die Farben und Kontraste der Werke sollen in der bestmöglichen Qualität wiedergegeben werden. Man könnte meinen, dies sei heute bei den vielen Anbietern von Druckdienstleistungen kein Problem, dem ist aber nicht so. Auf höchstem Niveau braucht es mehr als nur den Wunsch, mit Druckerzeugnissen Geld zu verdienen - auf höchstem Niveau bedarf es an Leidenschaft für Fine Art Prints und ein hohes Maß an Verständnis für die Bedürfnisse der Künstler. Heute bin ich froh, zwei perfekte Partner gefunden zu haben, die meine Anforderungen voll umsetzen können.

Die Werke werden in zwei Druckvarianten angeboten:

1. ChromaLuxe

2. Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag 310 g/m²

The works of the series "The Color Codes" are available as fine art prints in various sizes, always as limited edition.

Artic Blues IIIArtic Blues III

Processing and printing of the works had two main points:

1. The works should not only be available in small formats as high quality fine art prints, but also as large format prints of the same quality (the largest work so far has a size of 500 x 308 cm).

2. The colors and contrasts of the works should be reproduced in the best possible quality. One would think that this is not a problem today with the many printing service providers, but that is not the case. At the highest level it takes more than just the desire to make money from "printing", at the highest level it requires a passion for Fine Art Prints and a high level of understanding of the artists' needs. I am glad to have found two perfect  partners who fully meet my requirements.

The works are offered in two print versions:

1. ChromaLuxe

2. Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag 310 g/m²
 

All works of the series "The Color Codes" can be found here.

Ganz gewiss habe ich noch nie mit einem Mullah in Teheran gesprochen, 
aber ganz gewiss habe ich mit Menschen wie Du und ich in Teheran gesprochen.
Ganz gewiss habe ich noch nie mit einem Mullah in Isfahan gesprochen,
aber ganz gewiss habe ich mit Menschen wie Du und ich in Isfahan gesprochen.
Ganz gewiss habe ich noch nie einen Mullah in Teheran kennengelernt, 
aber ganz gewiss habe ich Menschen wie Du und ich in Teheran kennengelernt.
Ganz gewiss habe ich noch nie einen Mullah in Isfahan kennengelernt,
aber ganz gewiss habe ich Menschen wie Du und ich in Isfahan kennengelernt.

Was ich damit sagen möchte ist, dass ich nicht weiß, wer oder was politisch das Problem ist. Aber egal was das Problem ist, es muss ohne Bomben und ohne Blutvergießen gelöst werden.

Die Menschen, die ich im Iran kennengelernt habe, waren sehr freundlich, sehr offen, sehr herzlich, sehr lebensfroh, sehr einfühlsam und sehr gastfreundlich. 

Ein Krieg würde diese freundlichen, offenen, herzlichen, einfühlsamen und gastfreundlichen Menschen treffen, das darf nicht sein.
 


Dies ist die 33-Bogen-Brücke (Si-o-se Pol persisch سی وسه پل‎) in Isfahan. Im Zentrum des Orients steht sie für mich, auch wenn sie nur rund 400 Jahre ist, auch als Sinnbild für einen der ältesten Kulturräume der Welt. 


(Foto: 33-Bogen-Brücke in Isfahan, Iran)

Wenn man abends vor ihr steht, dann ist man sicherlich vom Erscheinungsbild und von der Architektur beeindruckt. Nähert man sich ihr an einem (persischen) Wochenende, dann sieht man hier und da Menschen. Wenn man noch näher kommt, dann hört man hier und da ein Flüstern in den Bögen und man sieht ab und zu zwei Menschen durch die Bögen huschen. Die Brücke ist am Wochenende auch romantischer Treffpunkt von Paaren - von solchen, die schon verheiratet sind und von solchen, die vielleicht noch heiraten wollen und sich im Schutze der Bögen treffen. Graffiti gibt es natürlich keine, aber über die Jahrhunderte haben viele Menschen und vermutlich viele Paare Inschriften in den Mauern hinterlassen. 


(Foto: 33-Bogen-Brücke in Isfahan, Iran)
 

Die Mauern haben in den vergangenen Jahrhunderten viel gesehen, viel gehört, aber alles stets vertraulich behandelt und für sich behalten. Was zwischen ihnen geschah war zu manchen Zeiten erlaubt und zu manchen Zeit nicht erlaubt (so habe ich ein Paar in Isfahan kennen gelernt, die bei einem ihrer heimlichen Treffen "ertappt" wurden und daraufhin umgehend heiraten mussten), aber die Mauern stehen immer noch.

Ich hoffe, dass sie noch viele Jahre stehen werden und sich Menschen weiterhin im Schutze ihrer Bögen treffen können.

No War With Iran!

Am Ende des Tages wollen wir doch alle das Gleiche - heute einen schönen Sonnenuntergang genießen und morgen auch.

Against all the rumors - I was not on vacation :-) ... I was just freakin' busy and on top of that I caught an ugly post-winter-flu. But after a good cup of tea I am back here. What happended meanwhile? Well, I worked very intense on the two series The Color Codes and Space over Time (slit-scan photography). I'm gonna post new stuff from these two projects soon.

I also did some customer shoots, some of them not so interesting, some of them exciting, but one very lovely shoot with the artists of Circus Sonnenstich and IN.Zirque. Here a quote from their website:

_____________________

IN.ZIRQUE ist eine ganzheitliche Bewegungssprache für Akrobatik, Jonglage- und Balancetechniken. Diese werden zusammen mit tanzpädagogischen Methoden auf der Grundlage der Schauspielmethodik von Michael Chekhov vermittelt. IN.ZIRQUE ermöglicht den Aufbau einer pädagogisch-künstlerischen Haltung - aufbauend auf der eigenen Bewegungspraxis im Rahmen der Weiterbildung.

IN.ZIRQUE ist seit 2019 eine eingetragene Marke. Die Arbeitsmethoden werden seit 22 Jahren im Dialog mit den Sonnenstich-Artist*innen, die mit sogenannten Behinderungen leben, entwickelt. Im Rahmen einer kontinuierlichen Praxisforschung werden diese zu einer inklusiven Didaktik mit einer ganzheitlichen Praxis für alle Zirkusdisziplinen ausgearbeitet.

Over two days we took photos for the IN.ZIRQUE projects, headed and supervised by Michael Pigl-Andrees. We worked hard but had also fun at the same measure. But ... why do I post this? Because two weeks after our shoot, Michael Pigl-Andrees received the Federal Cross of Merit (Bundesverdienstkreuz) on May 27, 2019 for his voluntary work in Circus Sonnenstich and the Center for Moving Arts e.V. He dedicated this award to the 50 artists of Circus Sonnenstich who live with trisomy 21 and other so-called disabilities (source: ZKB Berlin).

Polar Bear Cub Express https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/3/polar-bear-express Meine Auswahl - My Selection

It was an exciting time in the last few weeks with the little polar bear cub at Tierpark Berlin. After the several visits to the birthing den, the first excursion was made last week. What can I say - mother and daughter enjoyed it to the fullest. It is remarkable how lovingly and caring Tonja is with the little cub. Heartwarming.

Es war eine aufregende Zeit in den letzten Wochen mit dem kleinen Eisbärchen im Tierpark Berlin. Nach den Besuchen in der Wurfhöhle stand nun letzte Woche der erste Ausflug an. Was soll ich sagen - Mutter und Tochter haben es in vollen Zügen genossen. Es ist bemerkenswert welche Liebe und Fürsorge Tonja ausstrahlt und lebt.

Besuch bei Mutter und Tochter https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/besuch-bei-Mutter-und-tochter Besuch bei Mutter und Tochter - Brief visit to mother and daughter (english report see underneath the photos)

A polar bear is a polar bear. That also means a polar bear is no cuddly toy. But if you visit these two beings, then this fact can ever be briefly forgotten. But one after anonther.After I accompanied the polar bear cub to his first veterinary examination, this week was the "mother-daughter appointment". Accompanied by two zookeepers, I visited Tonja's birthing den again. She sure heard us when we were up the road to her, and she sure knew early that someone was there who would not come on a normal day. While the two zookeepers were already at the birthing den, I was still standing at the half-opened door and, as on the last visit, pulled on overshoes, rubber gloves and specially provided clothing - all to protect the little polar bear. So while I was getting ready in front of the door, I could already see Tonja through the door gap ... and she could see me. She watched me very attentively. I directly took the chance of her attention and talked calmly with her while I "dressed" myself. When I entered the building and stepped carefully in front of her birthing den, one could feel that Tonja, even if she did not look directly at me, had me permanently on the radar. The little polar bear, on the other hand, was completely relaxed and happily excited about the morning visit of the two keepers and "the other one". So while the keepers prepared the food for the two polar bears, I had some time to gain Tonja's confidence. The birthing den and Tonja's refuge is of course secured by bars - that is, for good photos, I had to get very close. And "very close" would only work with Tonja's kind permission. But ... it was amazingly fast. After two signals from her part, who is the boss in the hood and the signal on my side that I accept that absolutely, Tonja left me very close to the birthing den. It might sound "humanized", but you could well get the feeling that she was presenting her offspring with the pride of a mother of the camera.

And what else is there to report about the appointment? The little polar bear is simply cheery, fidel and happy about life. And Tonja I observed as a very caring mother. While in big cats (as the litter is usually more numerous), the mother can not always keep an eye on all four, five or six, Tonja always kept an eye on her offspring. If the little cub did not follow her mother, Tonja immediately turned around and looked after her. In general, I could feel a very peaceful, relaxed, contented and loving atmosphere with them.

Eisbären mit ihrer prekären Situation im natürlichen Lebensraum sind in unserer Zeit ein Sinnbild unseres falschen Weges im Umgang mit den Ressourcen unseres Planeten. Dieser Weg bedroht den Lebensraum des Eisbären drastisch und unseren eigenen.

Wie der Zoo Berlin, so unterstütze auch ich die Organisation "Polar Bears International" - https://polarbearsinternational.org/.  

These days polar bears with their precarious situation in their natural habitat are a symbol of our wrong way in dealing with the resources of our planet. This path drastically threatens the habitat of the polar bear and our own.

Like the Berlin Zoo, I also support the organization "Polar Bears International" - https://polarbearsinternational.org/.

Tonja und ihr EisbärchenTonja und ihr EisbärchenTonja and her cub.  

Ein Eisbär ist ein Eisbär. Das heißt auch, ein Eisbär ist kein Kuscheltier. Aber wenn man diese beiden Wesen besucht, dann kann diese Tatsache schon mal kurz in Vergessenheit geraten. Aber der Reihe nach.

Nachdem ich den Eisbären Nachwuchs zu seiner ersten tierärztlichen Untersuchung begleitet habe, stand nun diese Woche der "Mutter-Tochter-Termin" an. Begleitet von zwei Tierpflegerinnen ging ich wieder zu Tonja's Wurfhöhle. Ganz sicher hat sie uns gehört, als wir den Weg hinauf zu ihr waren und ganz sicher hat sie schon früh mitbekommen, dass da jemand dabei war, der sonst nicht kommt. Während die beiden Tierpflegerinnen schon bei der Wurfhöhle waren, stand ich noch an der halb geöffneten Tür und zog mir, wie schon beim letzten Besuch, Überschuhe, Gummihandschuhe und extra bereitgestellte Kleidung über - das alles zum Schutz des kleinen Eisbären. Während ich mich also vor der Tür bereit machte, konnte ich Tonja bereits durch den Türspalt sehen ... und sie konnte mich sehen. Sie beobachtete mich sehr aufmerksam. Ich nutze direkt ihre Aufmerksamkeit und redete  ruhig mit ihr während ich mich "ankleidete". Als ich dann das Gebäude betrat und vorsichtig vor ihre Wurfhöhle trat konnte man spüren, dass mich Tonja, auch wenn sie mich nicht direkt anschaute, ständig auf dem Radar hatte. Das kleine Eisbärchen hingegen war komplett entspannt und freudig aufgeregt über den morgendlichen Besuch der beiden Tierpflegerinnen und "des anderen". Während also die Tierpflegerinnen das Essen für die beiden Eisbären vorbereiteten, hatte ich ein wenig Zeit, um Tonja's Vertrauen zu gewinnen. Die Wurfhöhle und Tonja's Refugium ist natürlich durch Gitterstäbe gesichert - das heißt, für gute Fotos musste ich sehr nahe ran, denn ich konnte nur mit der Kamera direkt an der Sicherung die Fotos machen. Und "sehr nahe ran" ging natürlich nur, wenn Tonja das akzeptieren würde. Aber... es ging erstaunlich schnell. Nach zweimaligem Signal ihrerseits, wer hier das Sagen hat und dem Signal meinerseits, dass ich das absolut akzeptiere, ließ mich Tonja ganz nahe an die Wurfbox. Es klingt vielleicht "vermenschlicht", aber man konnte durchaus das Gefühl gewinnen, dass sie ihren Nachwuchs dann doch mit dem Stolz einer Mutter der Kamera präsentierte. 

Und was gibt es noch von dem Termin zu berichten? Das kleine Eisbärchen ist einfach putzmunter, fidel und freut sich des Lebens. Und Tonja habe ich als eine äußerst fürsorgliche Mutter beobachten können. Während bei Großkatzen (da ist der Wurf in der Regel ja zahlreicher) die Mutter nicht immer alle vier, fünf oder sechs im Auge behalten kann und schon mal gelassen "Fünfe grade sein lässt", hat Tonja ihren Nachwuchs nicht aus den Augen gelassen. Wenn die Kleine mal nicht sofort der Mutter gefolgt ist, hat sich Tonja sofort umgedreht und nach ihr geschaut. Überhaupt konnte ich bei den beiden eine sehr friedliche, gelassene, zufriedene und liebevolle Atmosphäre fühlen.

Es ist ein Mädchen - It's a Girl https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/polar-baer-cub It's a girl

The preperation for the zoo keepers took several days. Finally yesterday was THE day and everybody was, well, I wouldn't say nervous, but attentively tense and a bit excited. For the initial examination and vaccination of a polar bear cub, mother and daughter had to be seperated for a few minutes. Tonja wasn't far away during the examination and her decisive voice reminded us, that she was near, she was strong and she wants to get back. Therefore the procedure had be precisive and fast, with everybody knowing exactly what to do. It didn't take more than ten minutes - weighing, examination and vaccination, done. After this procedure (and after we all left the box!), Tonja went back to her daughter and the first thing the little cub did was a relaxed visit to mother's milk bar. 

Die Vorbereitung für die Tierpfleger dauerte mehrere Tage. Gestern war dann endlich DER Tag. Alle Beteiligten waren ein bißchen angespannt und ein bißchen aufgeregt, schließlich mußten für die erste Untersuchung und Impfung des kleinen Eisbären Mutter und Tochter für einige Minuten getrennt werden - zum ersten Mal (wenn alles glatt läuft wird dies nur zur zweiten Impfung noch einmal geschehen - ansonsten werden die beiden keinen direkten Kontakt mehr zu Menschen haben).
Tonja war während der Untersuchung nicht weit entfernt und ihre resolute Stimme erinnerte uns daran, dass sie in der Nähe war, sie stark ist und sie so schnell wie möglich zu ihrem Nachwuchs zurück möchte. Daher mußte der Ablauf sehr präzise und schnell sein. Da jeder genau eingewiesen war, was zu tun ist und jeder Handgriff saß, dauerte es auch nur zehn Minuten - Wägen, Untersuchung und Impfung. Nach dieser Prozedur (und nachdem wir alle die Box wieder verlassen hatten!) ging Tonja zufrieden zu ihrer Tochter zurück und das kleine Junge machte als erstes einen entspannten Besuch an der Milchbar der Mutter.

Album 2018 Ella https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/Album-2018-ella Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

Certainly one of the highlights in November: two shootings with Ella, a newborn Rothschild's Giraffe at Tierpark Berlin. She was born on November 3rd, three days later I was called by the Tierpark to meet Ella and to take photos of her. Giraffes, especially when they are in their stable, are jumpy and a bit nervous to unforeseen events - a photographer in their stable is definitely an unforeseen event. So the zoo keeper asked me to leave my crackling jacket and my camera backpack outside the stable. It was not my first giraffe close up shoot, so I knew that moving in slow motion is definitely recommend - so that's what I did. I approached newborn Ella very slowly and talked to here in a very calm manner and entered her box. Her mother Amalka was very close in the door-to-door box - I talked to her as well and as always introduced myself. This whole slow motion and calm talking led to the situation that the giraffes stayed very calm and observed me attentively and curious, without any fear. Sometimes their curiosity was so big that they were a bit too close for my 24mm lens :-).

It was stormy and really cold that November, so Ella had to wait two weeks, before she was allowed to go outdoor to the big giraffe pasture at Tierpark Berlin. Well, she was extremly excited about her first "walk in the park" and run the pasture up and down and down and up.

Album 2018 Sumatra-Tigers https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/Album-2018-sumatra-tigers Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

2018 - the population of Sumatra Tigers in Sumatra's rain forest has shrunken to just 350-450. Thus the Sumatra Tiger is considered an as endangered species and is also one of the most threatened big cats on earth. And That is sad. But there are also good news. This summer, four Sumatra Tigers were born in Tierpark Berlin. Two female and two male tiger cubs "arrived" on August 4th. Mother Mayang (7) gave birth in a so called "birthing den" (Wurfbox). When they were three weeks old, I was asked to take photos of the three cubs in their birthing den, which hasn't been opened before. So I was kind of the first human they encountered, what a responsibility on my shoulders :-) Accompanied by the Tierpark veterinarian and the Tierpark management I entered the box very, very calm and also talked to the cubs the same way as I talked to little new born cats at home when I was a little kid. Well, little cats, little tigers, both groups basically behave the same way, they growl and hiss - which was a good sign, because that's what a cat is supposed to do. The vet examined them and I took photos. The whole procedure took exactly six and half minutes, for we didn't wanted to disturb them too much. Although it was a very short experience it was a very impressive experience. I mean I have worked with another new born tiger before (Alisha), but this was different - it was the energy in the birthing den which made the difference. A place where Mayang gave birth to the four cubs and where the energy of mother tiger and the four cubs had been concentrated for more than three weeks - an energy which stuck with me very intensely for some days, an energy which might stick with me forever. 

After the vet made his first examination and found everything ok so far, two months later the cubs had to be examined the second time, this time a bit longer and most of all this time they had to be vaccinated, just like your cats at home. No human and no cat likes to get a shot, but they took it very brave with just a little grumble. It was the first time they were outdoor, so all the new views and sound distracted them and the examination and the shots were kind of incidental. After 15 minutes they returned to their birthing den and to her mother. 

Another four weeks later they had their first 'walk in the park' with their mother to the tiger outdoor facility. To give them the privacy and silence they needed for their first experience on the tiger facility, the public was not allowed to visit them for the first weeks until they got used to the facility. So we had the pleasure to see them exclusively exploring the rocks, the bushes and the pond for the first time. They run up and down, returning indoor, returning outdoor and back and forth. 

The last 'tiger event' in 2018 was the visit of the Indonesian Ambassador, S. E. Herr Arif Havas Oegroseno and his wife Sartika Oegroseno, who were pleased to see the four cubs of this endangered species.


After all these words here are some photos of all these visits.

Six weeks later, the first x-large examination by the Tierpark veterinarian Dr. Günter Strauß and the first vaccination.

The day started as usual... but they instinctivelyrealized "something's different today, the dude with the camera is here ... again". A little hissing a little growling and then, they had to go and see the doctor.

Album 2018 New Lens https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/Album-2018-new-lens Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

Finally - a new macro lens has joined the Steffen Freiling Photography family in 2018. A Micro-NIKKOR 105 mm 1:2,8. A great lens and in connection with my D850 - a brilliant solution for many of my art projects. I bought the lens at Foto Wichern in Berlin-Lichtenrade, which means Brandenburg is not far, so I made a little trip to Brandenburg, unwrapped the baby and took some quick photos:

Album 2018 The "oil paintings" https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/Album-2018-the-oil-paintings Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

Last year I visited Sardinia's high lands for the Series "The Color Codes", when I found a place with two very old olive trees (researchers from the University of Sassari have made an exploration of the exact age - one of them is at least 2000, but more likely 3000 to 4000 years old). It might sound cheesy, but the place had a very special energy. Sitting under these very old trees was very special - they had been there when Jesus went to Jerusalem (and might have been already 2000 years old then) and they had been already old trees when Christoph Columbus set sails... 

So... you guessed it right, I took photos of the trees. When I developed the raw files, I wanted to show a bit more of what I felt, when sitting under the trees and found 'flowing lines' would represent the energy a bit more. And then I thought, well, in that case you should have had a canvas and oil color with you. But only then I found the "oil-filter" in photoshop and found it is just what I was looking for. I applied the filter and it felt great. This inspired me to do it vice versa, meaning first find a spot, a scenery or an object which might suit the filter and then take the photo. This led to a little series named "Oil" or "hashtag #NONOFILTER" - meaning, 'yes I used a photoshop filter for this photo and I like it'.

Here are some of the 2018 art works "Oil":

Interesting story with the following photo. Sardinia high lands. I was in my way back home around 8pm when I passed, like many times before, the 'Valle della luna" (valley of the moon). There I saw the full moon illuminating the valley. I didn't have the right lens with me, I didn't have a tripod with me and I had just my little Fuji X-E1 with me, but I had to take a photo of this scenery. So I stopped at the vista point. There is a little  refreshment shack with a few tables, where I had stopped for a coffee now and then. They leave their table and chairs out over night, so I put my Fuji on one of the tables an ashtray underneath the lens and took a 30 seconds exposure of the scenery. 'Valle della Luna' with full moon and still a tiny  little bit of daylight.

Album 2018 New Color Codes https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/Album-2018-new-color-codes Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

In 2018 I worked very intensely on the continuation of the series "The Color Codes" - photos offering a viewing with as less as possible 'habitual' associations linked to the objects displayed in the photo. The energy of the place, the energy of the specific moment, the energy of the color composition of the photographed objects and the wonder of nature should speak for themselves. To achieve this I do take macro photos with extreme magnification and distortion, so that the natural form of the object disappears.

The overall goal with this series is to offer your mind a moment of peace and within that peace, gates to new horizons. Read the complete description of the series here 

All art works of this series are offered as fine art prints, printed at one of the fines printing manufactories d'mage & d'mage light - print on your own. As I am using a super high resolution camera for this series, most of the photos are available as very large format prints up to 5 meters / 200 inches and more.

In late spring 2018 I traveled to Sardinia's highlands (see also here) to find the specific moments, places and colors suitable for this series. The photos are distorted super macros, mostly of plants, flowers in general, as wells as orchids and orchid blossoms.

Here are some of the 2018 art works:

Album 2018 Hotel Mercure Berlin Mitte https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/Album-2018-hotel-mercure-berlin-mitte Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

Hotel Mercure Berlin Mitte - 10 years customer of Steffen Freiling Photography. I want to take the chance and give you a review of 10 years of productive and very pleasant cooperation with the hotel management and all employees.

It all began with their bar "Gleis 11". The bar has a sports corner and a sports corner needs sport photos - so the management asked me to take photos of the local basketball team "Alba Berlin" and the local hockey team "Eisbären Berlin". The photos then had been printed as fine art prints for the "sports corner".

A highlight was certainly the redesign of the hotel lobby. The hotel management asked me to take photos from the near surroundings of the hotel. In collaboration with the hotel interior designer, "Atelier Ricken", I contributed large format fine art prints, which then had been printed on wood and are to be seen in the hotel lobby.

Album 2018 Circus Sonnenstich https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/Album-2018-circus-sonnenstich Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

A wonderful experience and encounter in 2018 - Circus Sonnenstich. Here are some infos from their website (source: ZKB www.zbk-berlin.de)
"The ZBK and its Circus Sonnestich houses more than 50 artists in three groups (adults, juniors and kids) most of them have Trisomy 21 and other special mental features. We employ eleven fee-based trainers, including an assistant coach with Down syndrome. The ZBK has also become an educational institution, we offer school programs with BEKIS (Moving Arts and inclusive school culture), organize workshops and symposia (IN.CIRQUE) and are well networked internationally (eg with Palestine)." 

For more information please visit their website, or listen to this podcast / radioeins

In February I visited the rehearsals of Circus Sonnenstich and took photos for their advertising and marketing activities - at the end of the day I left the building with a bright glow in my heart. If you have a chance to visit one of their shows (e.g. at Chamäleon Berlin) - do it! I can promise great artistry and lovable artists. I would like to quote one of the artists, Hagen Häsler (source: Aktion Mensch): When asked what the circus means to him, he answered:
"I am always strong.
In the circus smooth like a cat.
I feel really good.
Balance.
I love circus.
I am happy.
I want all people to be happy."

Diabolo, acrobatics, trapeze, theater and dance performances - the artistest are professionals in many different disciplines.

Album 2018 Karl der Große https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/Album-2018-karl-der-grosse Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

Undoubtedly an in many ways exciting photo shooting. I was informed by the Tierpark Berlin, that great one-horned rhinoceros Betty is pregnant and as soon as she gives birth, I should take photos. Wednesday morning, September 5th, I got the call and an hour later the zoo keeper Mario Hammerschmidt awaited me at "Dickhäuterhaus" and together we went to Betty's stable. The stable where Betty gave birth was prepared by the zoo keepers in an extraordinary cozy manner with a thick layer of bark mulch. As the "Dickhäuterhaus" was closed to the public (due to renovation work), Betty had cozy and peaceful place to deliver her sixth baby. Mario opened the stable next to Betty's stable, so I could take photos from there. The two stables are separated by a 5 feet wooden fence. Before I took the first photo I talked to Betty, introducing myself, telling her that I am here to take photos of her and her baby. She was very calm and relaxed, but still busy with the afterbirth. I took some photos, only then I saw that she was still busy with the afterbirth. I thought it would be a bit insensitive, to take photos while she wasn't really finished with the birth process. So I waited, watched her and the newborn rhino and enjoyed the warm atmosphere of the stable which had already filled the whole Afred-Brehm-Haus, it was wonderful - the great work of the zoo keepers with the cozy stable, Betty's strong and proud energy and the wonderful energy of the curious and excited newborn rhino. After a while I dared to ask Mario, whether I would be possible to get into Betty's stable, which would be the only way to get good photos of the two rhinos. Mario agreed, opened the door and let me in. At this point the most important thing was to talk to Betty with a calm and relaxed voice and to keep an eye on the door (... so I'd know where to go to in case Betty wouldn't be happy with me being with her). But she just looked at me for a short moment and then went on caring for the baby, which I took as a "it is OK that you are with us". So I stayed for a while, talked to the two loveable beings and took some photos. 


The newborn taking a quick nap ...

I missed the first sip (colostrum), which happened more or lesss right after birth when I was not there yet, but this was "kind of" the second sip. Still a bit unsecure where the teat is, it took a couple of minutes, but then everything worked out just fine.

Album 2018 Halloween https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/Album-2018-halloween Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

It was so much fun. I was in the Tierpark for one of the Sumatra Tiger shootings when a marketing employee and I were on our way back to the car when we saw that the newborn Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs just got a pumpkin. They were all excited and curious about the "thing", so were we about them :-)
I sat down with them in their enclosure and took some photos. I want to share this brief encounter with you. If you are at the Tierpark, I recommend to go and see the Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs and spend some time with them, it is worth it.

Album 2018 Festival of Lights Berlin 2018 https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/Album-2018-festival-of-lights-berlin-2018 Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

10 years Festival of Lights in Berlin. My first photo at the festival of lights in Berlin was a photo of the Brandenburg Gate. I have sold this fine art print many times, it even made his way to Japan. The horses were illuminated in blue and the gate in red, yellow orange. 

Brandenburger Tor Festival of LightsBrandenburger Tor Festival of Lights

 

One of my favorite buildings in Berlin, actually my favorite building - Funkturm Berlin / Berlin Radio Tower. That's why I thought, it would be cool to visit "The Guard", as I name the Funkturm, during the the Festival of Lights / 2018. On my first visit I did a series of all illumination phases. The night I went there was cloudless, so one can see not only the illuminated Funkturm with a good contrast but also the stars in the background:

Please check out my saatchi account: www.saatchiart.com/steffenfreiling.

I went to the Funkturm a second time during the Festival of Lights. That night, surprise, surprise, the illumination didn't work. So I took a photo of the Funkturm without the festival illumination, but with the available light as a long term exposure photo. The stars were as kind as guiding me again.

Album 2018 Bird Dome Zoo Berlin https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/Album-2018-bird-dome Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

Some more photos from another job at the bird dome at Berlin Zoo. The photos were made for the sings in the bird dome and for marketing matters, so I should know the names of the birds, but ... just two stayed with me - the red-and-yellow barbet and the Treroninae.

The job was kind of difficult - with handheld 500 mm focal length above my head, exposure times around 1/125 seconds and less and some really tiny birds. This can be a challenge, but surprisingly it was a relaxing experience - for it has a calming effect to sit, wait, look out for these little fellows and then watch them doing their things... and with some of them I had brief conversations ;-)

Here are some of the photos:

Album 2018 Bird Shower Zoo Berlin https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/2/Album-2018-bird-shower Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

You never stop learning. When I was asked by the Berlin Zoo to take photos of the new bird shower, frankly said, I was astonished. A bird shower, never heard of such a thing. But it makes sense. In 2013 the "Vogelhaus" opened its doors to the public - Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Zoo Berlin AG Frank Bruckmann then said "...on a journey through the continents, there are fascinating things to discover and experience in the world of birds. We can rightly be proud of that. " And he is right. In different areas of the dome you can experience bird life of different continents - and this means, also birds who live in rain forests. You guessed it, it is them who need the showers - to simulate their natural habitat.

It was amazing how much they enjoyed their new showers. And for you as a visitor, you can experience the feeling of a rain forest, trust me - it is warm, it is humid and with all the bird sounds it gives you a bit of this special rain forest feeling. Go there and witness it yourself. 

First I spent some time with them, so they got used to me, I mean not everybody is pleased to be watched and photographed while showering, so I thought it would be better to show up early and introduce myself.

Album 2018 Vinzenz van Dyk https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/1/album-2018-vinzenz-van-dyk Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

Vinzenz is a musician who is always up for something different, something special. 

Album 2018Album 2018My personal selection 2018.     Album 2018Album 2018My personal selection 2018.

We did quite a few photo shootings together and for his latest music project he wanted to do a photo shoot with overlayed multiple exposures - not 'faked' with photoshop (multiple photos, multiple layers), but the old fashioned, traditional way (that's the reason why I mention the photos in this review). That means you expose the same photo multiple times to light. The way I did it in the studio was like this: 
First I measured the flash lights exactly with a light meter. Then Vinzenz took his first position. When he was ready, I released the shutter and fired the flashes for the first time, Vinzenz took his second position, I released the shutter and fired the flashes for the second time and finally he took his last position and I released the shutter and fired the flash for the last time. All three exposures were made on the same image. But we not only wanted three exposures into one photo, but in also a little bit of movement effects in each exposure. In order to achieve this, I set the exposure time to 1/5 second and the flash synchronization to rear sync, which means that for 1/5 of a second the ambient light exposures the photo, Vinzenz moves and after this 1/5 second the flash exposures the photo. This way you get a proper exposed photo with movement effects. The fun thing about this procedure is that you cannot predict the result to 100% as you can in a "normal" exposed photo procedure, this is always a bit experimental... which means you should not be in a hurry when doing this.

Album 2018 New "Space Over Time" Art Works https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/1/Album-2018-new-space-over-time-art-works Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

Making visible how an observed space changes over time, using slit scan technology - this is basically what the series "Space over Time" is about. It started in New York City on a flea market in 2015 and developed to a multi million slit scan photo project, which it is today. In 2018 I created many new art works, all available as fine art prints (see here). Since last year I am using a super high resolution camera, so that large format prints are possible now.

Each image listed below (respectively each of my slit scan works) consists of thousands of single slit scan photos - the ones listed below for example of pineapples, Buddha statues, strawberries, bananas and strawberries, apples in a bowl, ceramic frogs, a shaman's drum and many more, but also complete "meals" such as a collage of three uncooked spaghetti, a tomato, a head of garlic, a leaf of basil, a red onion and a piece of parmesan.

Here are a few examples of the many works from the past year:

Album 2018 Berlin Bow https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/1/Album-2018-berlin-bow Review 2018 - worth mentioning:

The year 2018 started the same way as it ended - with bows. Over the year I shot the 18/19 collection for BERLIN BOW in several shootings. BERLIN BOWs are handcrafted in the renowned traditional Berlin manufactory Stange - luxury neck wear made in Berlin. In January 2018 BERLIN BOW was awarded by the leading global fashion trade show "PREMIUM" as "Talent Label of the Year".

Not only great bows, but also a great team to work with.

Here are some photos from our different shootings in 2018 and some behind-the-scene-material.

Album 2018 https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2019/1/Album-2018 Frankly said, I rather take photos than post in social media channels, what can I do. So the year 2018 has passed so fast and so many posts haven't been posted. That's why I'm catching up those lost posts. Not every photo shooting of 2018, not every photo of 2018, but some of the photo shootings and projects are worth mentioning. So stay tuned.

Curious Cheetah https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2018/10/curious-cheetah It was just funny. If you have a cat or know cats, you know what I am talking about. I had an appointment with the Tierpark vet. The four young tigers cubs had to get their first vaccination. So there were four young tigers, the vet, the zoo marketing director, three Zoo keepers and a photographer who had to take shots of the tigers getting their shots - yes, it was something going on ... at least that much that the neighbours, two cheetahs, got curious. One of them preferred to hide in the bushes, while the other wanted to know what was going on next door. But at the same time he wanted to hide as well - at least a bit. So he sat behind a tiny branch, well you cannot really call it a branch, it was a more or less just a cluster of green leaves, which he used as a hideout. But... his "hideout" was close, that close that he was close enough to witness next door's activities. For a minute I couldn't really focus on the job I had to do in first place, but to watch the cheetah watching us.

Definitely my favorite building in Berlin - Funkturm Berlin. I took this photo a few minutes after sunset. At the 'blue hour', when the first stars got visible and the sky was dark blue. It is a half-a-minute-exposure, so the greenish thing in the middle is the lift going up. This photo belongs to my fine art print series - check out here.

Just a little "prick" https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2018/10/sumatran-tiger-cubs After visiting the four Sumatran tiger cubs in their 'birthing den' three weeks after their birth (see here), we had another photo shoot appointment. Again we met in their 'birthing den'. This time they made very clear what they are - tigers. With loud growling and hissing the gave me a 'warm welcome' when I entered their box. But like all cats they were also very curious about the dude visiting them at their home. After our brief photo shoot in the box, they had to leave their cosy home in order to meet the Tierpark vet Dr. Günter Strauß for their first 'big' veterinary examination. Like our cats at home they have to be vaccinated and microchipped. Brave as big tigers, they went through the procedure without any problems. Four healthy youngsters.

Meet them soon @ Tierpark Berlin - read more here: Tierpark Berlin website

If you want to support this very endangered species, it’s the most threatened big cat on the planet, you can do it though various organisations. I support the 'International Union for Conservation of Nature' https://www.iucn.org. See also here

Goldgesichtsaki https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2018/5/goldgesichtssaki GoldgesichtsakiGoldgesichtsakiWhenever I work for the Berlin Zoo or Tierpark Berlin and encounter monkeys, I experience very special moments. No matter how big or small they are, there is always an immediate and intimate connection, especially when we have eye contact. It is an encounter which goes beyond something you can describe with words - if I'd try anyway I'd say 'two creatures meet as beings, liberated from conventions we typically apply - two beings being aware of life itself'.

The works are printed on CANSON Infinity Platin Fiber Rag 310 g/m² and mounted on a aluminium backing. The printing service is fullfilled by one of the best fine art printing companies, guaranteeing top notch quality.

It all began two years ago with this first shot.

This art project started three years ago on a flea market. I was in New York City and had some time before my flight back to Berlin. So I visited a flea market in Greenwich Village, where I bought "The Great 'Life' Photographers". A few months later I was in Austria and had the book with me. One of the great photographers in the book is George Silk. He took photos at U.S. Olympic tryouts in Palo Alto, Calif. back in 1960 - with a strip camera, a technology now better known as slit-scan photography. He was fascinated by the technology and carried the camera back home where he took some halloween photos of his kids. Fascinated by George Silk's story, the photos he took and most of all by the slit-scan technology I immidiately began with first experimental shots on the kitchen table with a turning eggcup. I was thrilled by the possibilities of this technology - making visible how space (a moving object) changes over a period of time. It took a while until I got the first "good" shot - developing my own suitable turntable with electronic control and the appropriate software tools to handle the huge amount of data were the most important steps.

Basically you observe a very small segment of space of a moving object and take thousands and thousands of photos, which then are merged together into one single image. The name of the series is "Space over Time" because with the sclit-scan technology you can see how the observed space develops/changes over time.

In this gallery you find some of the works available as fine art prints:
https://www.steffenfreiling.de/fine-art-space-over-time
The objects in the gallery are avocados, tomatoes, bananas, melons, basils, torches, water bottles, pineapples and many more. Depending on where you place the camera in relation to the object you get different but always fascinating structures.

HD metal prints have brillant colors and great contrasts, but most important HD metal prints give you the opportunity to hang my photo works in rooms with high humidity (for example bathrooms etc.) or even outdoor areas. Furthermore while paper prints are sometimes delicate to handle in terms of dusting, HD metal prints are robust, just wipe over with a cleaning cloth - and done.

Furthermore while paper prints are sometimes delicate to handle in terms of dusting, HD metal prints are robust, just wipe over with a cleaning cloth - and done.

See more works from the series "The Color Codes" here

Tastes are different and so some people say 'you've got to go to this place or that place'. Grimaldi's is definitely worth a visit. What the posted photo has to do with Grimaldi's? Well, after you had your pizza at Grimaldi's and felt a little bit of the old days vibes when the "Rat Pack" was still hanging out, you'll take a walk down to 'Jane's Carousel' and enjoy the wonderful view on downtown Manhattan.

Although it was a weekday he was dressed like on a church going sunday. Very nice coat, nice pants, nice shoes, all in black or grey. And grey was the sky, grey was the street, grey was the bin and grey was the mood his face reflected. He had a bag in his hand, which carried a bread and a bottle of red, which might have colored up his grey evening.

Curiosity https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2014/9/curiosity CuriosityCuriosityLately... it was a very quite day in a very small town in Portugal close to the Spanish border. I was walking through the empty streets, when I noticed that this cat was observing me. It almost looked like that this is the cat’s house and SHE opened the window to check out what is going on in the streets (“might there come one of my buddies along the way, for a brief chat??”).
I had to laugh back then, when I saw the cat observing me, and I still have to laugh when I look at the photo. Nothing was really going on in the street, except me walking along, so the cat focused all her senses on the stranger - “maybe HE’S up for a chat, well, anyway, at least he’s taking a photo of me - makes my day”.
I love cats.

No need to talk https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2014/6/no-need-to-talk No need to talkNo need to talkIt was windy, rainy and kind of cold, but the two guys seemed to enjoy themselves exactly where the were: at a windy, rainy and kind of cold spot.
I passed the two guys once, and half an hour later the second time. They didn’t seem to have moved just one inch. When I passed them for the second time, I saw the little 'Double-Eye-Graffiti' on the wall and contemplated for a second what the Grafitti could represent. Two eyeballs in one eye socket, or rather an amoebe? I stopped thinking and rather enjoyed the windy, rainy and kind of cold morning.

I didn’t look that close, but felt very, very strong vibes coming from the three persons on the concrete block, so I pushed the button and walked on because I had to catch the tram. I forgot about the photo. When I later developed the photo and looked at it on a big screen, I immediately felt these strong vibes again and got kind of very sad.

Reflection https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2014/2/reflection ReflectionReflectionOne of the last cold, really cold winter days of 2013/2014. Absolutely no wind, and so this beautiful reflection got his chance in the late afternoon.
I monochromed to upper part of the photo and left the reflection in color, because somehow the situation was like a winter’s farewell and a first glance of spring at the same time.

Ghandi https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2013/11/ghandi GhandiGhandiSteffen Freiling Photography

Within the scope of a documentary, I did some time ago for an organic farm in Brandenburg, I had the great pleasure and honour to meet this young fellow named Ghandi, an asian water buffalo. 

Ghandi was 'rejected' by his mother and had to be hand feeded by his owner. He was a very special character, always up for taking and giving the tenderness, but also very open (and demanding) for playing games like "catch Me If you can". 

I took this photo very early in the morning, just after sunrise.

Into the Light https://www.steffenfreiling.de/blog/2013/11/into-the-light Into the LightInto the LightIt was a very cold week at Portugal's west coast in February 2009 - cold, wet and very stormy. And then all of the sudden the storm was over and during late afternoon, the black clouds vanished. After all these days with heavy rain, I immediately grabbed my camera and hurried to the beach. Just in time to shoot the opening of the sky, while a seagull was flying into the sunset.
