"Paris: Analogue Abstractions"

Parts I, II & III - December 2009, Paris.

Shot with Pentax ME on Fuji Neopan 400 35mm Film.

There are few cities in the world that leave a mark on you as Paris does. Plenty of people might say it‘s the most beautiful city in the world. During a visit with my wife around new years eve 2009/2010 I found this night scenes that caught my attention.

I tried to take a different approach to Paris as motive by using abstraction as my instrument of choice. The somehow isolated night scene sparkles with urbanity, leaving a feeling of timelessness. From looking at the photo you can‘t tell if it‘s 1960 or 2009.

I come back to these shots very often because it it was a great time and I love the look and feel of this series. I loved these scenes so much that I used them as theme for my newly designed Homepage.

Variations of Frankfurt Skyline

Frankfurt, Germany is my hometown, I live here for almost 30 years now and I just don’t get tired of it. This set showcases different approaches I took on it’s beautiful skyline so far. There will be a lot more coming in the future, of that I am sure. Hope you like it.

"Contemplating André Wagner"
Cologne 2014
NEOPRIME at Photokina 2014. Marius regarding photo by André Wagner.
See more pictures from our trip to Cologne 
Photokina 2014, the world&#8217;s largest trade fair for photographic and imaging industries. It was our first time at this amazing fair with endless new things to discover. It&#8217;s incredible to see the whole world of photography coming together in one place. Although we could barely walk after 7 hours of looking at galleries, checking out new technologies and drowning in a sea of thousands of visitors, it was one hell of a day!

Abstract Addiction

Abstract iPhone Photography

Eventually, I made an additional site on my homepage to give my abstract iPhone photography project the space it deserves.

Experimenting with my iPhone I found out, that the most effective way getting used to taking abstract photos is getting close to your subject. And by close I mean: very close. This way you are forced to leave out a lot, you just can’t get all the essential attributes in the frame so you have to choose which ones to concentrate on. This is something I used to do a lot. I used very simple and common subjects like bottles of water, a tin can and my kitchen table. I was very enthusiastic about this, I made an Instagram account (@abstract_addiction) for the abstract photos I took with my iPhone. It even got me a feature in the Snap Magazine by Hipstamatic.

Now I gathered all the works that I like in one place on my homepage. I hope you like it.

SURREAL TERRITORY

Earlier this year mariusviethstreetphotography and I had a shooting for NEOPRIME. The place we went to very early in the morning turned out to be so damn surreal. Since then I had this idea in the back of my head. An idea of a certain distinctive style. I finally found the time to implement these ideas.

So here are some photos from, well, Mars? Hell? Or just some strange place on earth…

The Struggle
Frankfurt am Main, Germany 2014
This is another shot from my Rainy Days Session. I left the colors more natural this time because I think that it fits quite good in this one.

Frankfurt am Main, Germany - 2014
I&#8217;m so busy right now that I couldn&#8217;t make it to go out and shoot new photos. I&#8217;ve got a lot of ideas and plans but right now it seems I don&#8217;t have enough time. Hope I&#8217;m able to go about it soon.
Meanwhile I have some more from my Rainy Days series for you. I really liked the colors and layout in this quite minimal composition. Hope you like it as well.
