Seamless Spotlight: Frank Zschieschang

Frank Zschieschang experienced life in different parts of the world. Born and raised in a small town on the idyllic coast of the Baltic Sea in East Germany, he grew up in a socialist environment. His childhood and adolescence were very safe and protected, however, he longed for freedom as citizens were not allowed to travel to non-socialist countries.

Frank suffered with the knowledge that he would never see the vast extent of the Grand Canyon, the colourful display of the Northern Lights or the setting sun over the majestic dunes of the Sahara. But then, very unexpectedly, things changed.

The German wall came down and a completely different world presented itself. All of a sudden, the whole world was open to being explored. This was when Frank Zschieschang first came into touch with photography. He borrowed two rolls of film and the family SLR to explore the world and discovered photography as his true passion.

In years of self-study, living in Italy, the UK, Spain and Hong Kong he developed his photography skills to a professional level. It was during his time in Spain when he also started working on time-lapse projects and studied web development. The wanderlust never released its grip on Frank and it has become an essential part of his art. He now lives and works as a photographer and web designer in Hong Kong.

Venice in Solitude by Christopher Thomas

Christopher Thomas began his career as an advertiser for German magazines including GEO, Stern, Merian and others. In recent years he has concentrated his efforts on creating portraits of cities including Paris, Venice, the Engadin and New York. Thomas uses Polaroid film and long exposure techniques for this ongoing series.

Christopher Thomas’ captivating and atmospheric images show the Venetian landscape through his unique style of city portraiture, originally established with New York Sleeps (2009) and Münchner Elegien (Munich Elegies, 2001-2005). He transports us to a silent city, devoid of human presence, which could remind us of photographs from the 19th century, when the photographic image was not fast enough to capture the quickening pace of human activity. The series includes classical views of the Canal Grande, the Doge’s Palace, St. Mark’s Square, Rialto Bridge and others.

At the crack of dawn, just before dusk falls, or at night by the light of the moon, Thomas would set off through the sestiere – the various districts of Venice – with his heavy equipment comprising a large-format camera, a selection of lenses, a tripod, a dark velvet cloth and many boxes of Polaroid Type 55 film. Armed with a compass, azimuth and sun chart, pen and notebook he would select the view he wanted to photograph. The photographic material he uses – most of which is no longer produced today – ensures that the images are rich in detail. Thomas’ own eye, sensitivity and technical skill enabled pictures to emerge that return the city to its historical roots, with a sense of mystery.

Gran Esfuerzo, Inmedible Recompensa | Pedro Fernández Aguado

Unas personas antes, y otras después, descubrimos a través de la experiencia que a nadie le regalan nada. Si queremos obtener lo que anhelamos debemos ser perseverantes en nuestros esfuerzos, aplicar la máxima fotográfica del ensayo y error en cada paso que damos y, sobre todo, no debemos tirar nunca la toalla dejando escapar, de esa forma, nuestros sueños. Porque todo llega, aunque la senda no sea precisamente un camino de rosas.

Des paysages lumineux

Prendre des photos lumineuses la nuit
Je pense que le light-painting est un magnifique mélange d’expression photographique et artistique. Cette technique d’éclairage du paysage avec des temps d’exposition prolongés soulève l’idée que la lumière a beaucoup d’influence. — Dave Black
