Locarno, among other things

A month has passed already since the end of the 70th Locarno International Film Festival 2017, it's incredible how time flies, isn't it?! So it seems about right I gathered some of the shots from this edition for you to see. This time, as my duties became greater since last year, I was given a full page in which I sort of had creative "carte blanche".

Don't miss these if you want to see my winning series Art. 115.

    Concerts & Co.

    Here's a quick update with pictures from this week's KT Tunstall concert at Kaufleuten in Zurich. Photographing musicians while they perform has always been one of my favourite activities — especially if it's artists I admire — so I am particularly…
