Weekly Page: Süddeutsche Zeitung | S-Bahn in Szene gesetzt
Explanation: Two years ago I participated in a media informatics course which should improve our project competence with multimedia projects. In 2013, the S-Bahn in Munich celebrated their 40th anniversary. So our goal as photographers was to go out and to shoot some amazing pictures of everything which might be related to the S-Bahn: trains, stations, people working over their, landscape, rails, escalators. This really has been an amazing chance, as usually you are not allowed to take pictures on the station. And we had a couple of days to look for stunning views and to experiment with different situations.
In the end our images were magnified and publicly auctioned, supporting a social project by German actor Jutta Speidel. Quite an event just for some ECTS and gaining project competence, isn’t it?
Just one last addition: All of us took several beautiful pictures and we reviewed all of them to find out the best ones. But in the end Deutsche Bahn or rather the co-working PR department chose the final pics. I have no idea about why they chose those pictures and left out some of the most brilliant ones. Nontheless, customer’s the boss, right? It’s a pity I am not allowed to show my very own pictures to you right here, but at least I did one single shot which is completely stunning to me.
How I Got There: Well, obviously I am part of this article, right? I did not even recognise it. I was working at the Egyptological Institute when someone came in and told me that I would be in press. Again. Still it’s pretty cool to read your own name in public. I could get used to it. 😉
