In this issue: a colourful mixture of structures, lines, and cityscapes. The exterior appears almost unchanged — inside, however, the new Q2 is fitted with a brand new sensor offering a significantly higher resolution and greater range of digital focal lengths. After days on the job, the first Director of the Ernst Leitz Museum in Wetzlar takes time to answer some questions Photo London. Werner takes us on a journey through time to the former seat of government, Bonn.
A series capturing the flavour of the sixties and seventies. Sparse steppes, enchanted forests and special people: the photographer catches magical moments along the banks of the Yinesei. The young Venezuelan photographer captures strong images of daily life in detention centres, where access is normally denied. Using desaturated colours, the French photographer captures store fronts and motels in the USA, looking like film sets but devoid of any people.
The former guitarist of The Police has been a dedicated photographer for forty years. Now a new book with his images has been published. The half a million pictures published to date are evidence of the LFI.
To ensure that pearls among the submissions are not lost amid numerous new entries, we plan to offer more opportunities for introducing images to a broader public in the blog on our website. Until now, it was only individual photographers who had the chance to present their portfolios by means of special blog contributions. In April, we will introduce a new blog segment to regularly show pictures by LFI. Gallery users that have particularly delighted our editorial team.
Like our Lightbox section in the printed issue of LFI, this new online segment will become a platform for highlighting special images. That this musical artist also has a talent for visual composition is something that Summers has proven in the last decades.
One thinks of music in relationship to harmony, line, form, volume, silences, dynamics… all these terms can be equally applied to photography. Atlantis der BRD — an ironically nostalgic look at a time long ago — took Werner repeatedly to the former capital of the Federal Republic of Germany.
Employees at the Bonn Townhouse, at the Chancellor Hotel and at the Bungalow, all received me in a friendly manner. One caretaker even postponed a dentist appointment to unlock the former Federal Press Conference for me.
It is probably one of the last regions on the planet where there are still unexplored areas. The climate is extreme. The summer temperature can reach up to 50 degrees Celsius, while in winter the thermometer can sink to minus 50 degrees. Even then, Valentin, a former officer traumatized by his war experiences whom I met on my journey, sleeps outside by a fire. In a collaborative book project with Joachim Bessing, German photographer Christian Werner takes a both ironic and nostalgic look at this era in the history of the Federal Republic.
With great sensitivity, Christian Werner and author Joachim Bessing set out to capture a piece of German history. At the same time, their project is a sober reminder of what remains of this era: empty tables and chairs. The objects depicted in the images emanate a museum-like atmosphere.
It seems extraordinary that these scenes still exist. In , the parliament and parts of the government moved to Berlin, though Bonn is still home to six Federal Ministries. As soon as I conceptualised the book whose illustrations are featured on these pages, I had already decided on its future title: Bonn.
With regards to finding a suitable photographer, I immediately thought of Christian Werner. I knew from previous monographs that he had a rare ability to recapture the aesthetics of West Germany between the Economic Miracle and the fall of the Berlin Wall.
As it turned out, he — just like myself — had very little experience of Bonn before embarking on this project. It certainly makes sense that this would call. And, of course, there were stacks upon stacks of files. Everything was written, printed, recorded — and, subsequently, stored — on paper. One of the core-questions of the Atlantis project, therefore, was: how did the Bonn-based administration manage to operate in such spatially limited premises, despite requiring far larger devices and a vast amount of storage space?
Visitors of the City Townhouse find themselves enveloped in the rosewood-panelled world of s German architecture: low lounge seating arrangements; and the obligatory selection of Ray and Charles Eames furniture — a vintage dream of aluminium frames and Hessian fabric: original and, therefore, without a hint of irony.
In a niche that could have been created for Thomas Demand, I discovered a typewriter beneath a silver dust cover: an original Olivetti. It did not take us long to find out whose it was. Frau Seul is going to retire later this year. It consists of pages. The new Leica Q2 will expand your creative freedom thanks to its high resolution and best-in-class protection against dust and spray water.
Equipped with a newly developed As a professional tool for available light photography in challenging conditions, the Leica Q2 will enable you to go beyond limits to attain the perfect image.
Find more inspiration at www. The Yenisei, one of the longest rivers in the world, was the guiding line that Nanna Heitmann followed through Siberia. Along its banks she met loners, dropouts and dreamers, and heard of the myths that are still very much alive there.
The outcome is perceptive images from a distant world. Previous page: Vaselisa lives in the little village of Erzhey. Both her parents are deaf and dumb. Yuri lives with 15 dogs not far from the banks of the Yenisei. He enjoys the expanses and the silence.

During the ceremony spirits are asked for protection and healing.
This page: The former officer Valentin lives in the forest. He sleeps outside even in wintertime when the temperature is minus fifty degrees Celsius. Page 33, clockwise: Further impressive examples of the nature along the Yenisei; Eugenii with his rat, Barclay, in his apartment in Krasnoyarsk. Today people are once again looking for advice and healing from shamans. A traditional horse race, while temperatures rose to 43 degrees Celsius. Seven horses died from the heat. She spent a semester abroad in Tomsk, Siberia.
Natasha walked on and on. After a while she lay down on the ground and listened to the earth trembling and shaking. It was clear to her the witch, Baba Yaga, was close. She pulled out a comb and tossed it onto the ground over her right shoulder. At the spot where it fell there immediately arose a tall forest.
The roots of the trees buried themselves deep in the soil while the canopy towered up towards the heavens. Baba Yaga came flying along and tried to pass through the forest, but crashed against the trees. To pass through, the witch had to bend the trees over and gnaw her way through the branches — the young girl never paused but continued walking. Then Natasha heard the earth tremble again. Baba Yaga was again very near! This time the girl took a towel and tossed it on the ground over her right shoulder.
A very deep and wide river immediately appeared on the spot. Baba Yaga reached the bank and had to grind her teeth in anger.
She was unable to cross the river and returned to her little house on stilts. My mother comes from Russia. Apart from Moscow, it was just a large, blank space on a map.
So, I decided to do a semester abroad in Tomsk, Siberia. Baba Yaga is an important figure in Slavic folklore. She is an unpredictable and dangerous witch who lives in a little hut in the middle of the forest. For my project, I borrowed a Russian Jeep, packed camping equipment and drove towards Tuva with some inspired images in mind and places I wanted to see along the way. I received support from the mother of a friend, working there as a geologist, who helped me contact people and find locations.
Visually speaking, Russian painters were a great source of inspiration: Ivan Bilibin, illustrator of Russian fairy tales; and Michail Nesterov, whose. To a large degree I followed the flow of the Yenisei along my journey. Its source lies in the republic of Tuva on the border with Mongolia. It meanders northward through the whole of Siberia until finally emptying into the Arctic Ocean.
Following its course took me through the raw wilderness of the Siberian taiga. I viewed my journey as a documentation of life along the river, and about the mythology of the region. I searched for dream-like images.
