Working on Naturzustand at Bernina Pass in Switzerland: this road was too steep for Moby Dick, my cherry picker. At least that’s not captain Ahab having hooked me there.
Remember me up in my cherry picker? Voilà – here it is: the new Wired Germany with a story on rare earth metals found in Saxony, with photos by yours truly and a great text by Jacob Vicari.
Save the trees, kill the journalist! The text is available online, too.
There you go! Tamina and I travelled with hobos for a month; from Chicago to Savanah, Il to Iowa City, Io, to Des Moines, Io to Kansas City, Mi, to Pratt, Ka, to Denve, Co, to Cheyenne, Wy, to Nampa, Id, to Portland, Or, to Klamath Falls, Or, to Black Butte, Ca, to Rockville, Ca, to San Francisco, Ca — what a trip!
You can see some photos in Neon now and some more on their awesome website (plus audio and video and and and)
There’s presidential elections in Turkey tomorrow. And my photo of Hagia Sophia is part of the cover collage of the current DER SPIEGEL.
Here we go, my girl, my cat and my cherry picker Moby Dick: traveling the back streets of Europe, always following the shoreline. It’s great fun but I do it for work: Naturzustand. We’ll be back in a month, if things go well with boxes full of negatives.
Dear Friends, I will give a lecture at LCC today, the very school that taught me the in and outs of the trade. Come by and say hello!
And tomorrow I’ll talk at the Lumix Festival for Young Fotojournalism in Hannover. Your second chance for a meet and greet.
There’s rare earth metals found in Germany – here you see me photographing them. Not an easy task as they are still far underground but luckily I have my cherry picker. Read the full story in Wired some time soon.
