Chasing buttons: At the school

DIARY PAGE TWO: At the school of "people"!

We traveled around the city for a few days. Big streets, big buildings, big metallic boxes, big loud voices, big loud fuss! Everything is so big in this city! We talked with Mrs Cigarette Butts, young poet Piece Ofpaper and Mr Chewing Gum. Very interesting points of view i have to admit! We've also had a lovely conversation with Mr Ant. He was very willing to answer our peculiar queries. Amongst all the amazing things, he said that these funny creatures called "people" use big buildings with lots of rooms, as learning houses!!! Absurd! They call them "schools" and they spend a great deal of time in there. We had to visit!!

 There was actually a "school" very close to our location. It was enormous, with dull rooms, everything was painted in the same boring colors, and the decoration was terrible! Empty walls, no furniture, just some wooden chairs and some things like tables. We assume that people who spend their time in here, must have a lack of imagination and really bad taste!

I personally found a new friend, Ms Chalk. She lives on a rectangular piece of wood, called "blackboard", which is actually green.
"This place is wearing me off! Every little thing i do for people, sends me one step closer to the end of my days!" she said.
We chitchatted for a while. She was a lady of many talents! She even offered to make a portrait of me and my daughter.

The time had come. We had to move on. Some arrogant fellow mates, wouldn't leave without having their portraits done. Ms Chalk was upset. "Eat my dust" she said, and left them standing there alone.

Very strange things, those "people" do. We have to learn more. I guess this adventure will take us to paths we never imagined walking...

Extraordinaries: The soul of instruments

Ι'm really happy to announce a new series of posts, called : Extraordinaries!
I'll present some jaw-dropping things that i find and they just can't be passed by. This series is inaugurated by WoW-Amazing photography. Enjoy!

Näher an der Klassik”~ Closer to the classic

"Closer to the classic" was the name of a print campaign for Berlin's Philharmonic Orchestra in 2012.
The original concept came from Mona Sibai and Björn Ewers and it came to life through the lens of Mierswa & Kluska.

They have used macro shots of the instruments interiors! These breath taking images give you the impression that you can even dance inside the instruments!

 The fantastic lights and the spacious feeling create an amazing atmosphere!

 Wood and metal, shades, lights, surface play their own music for the eyes. can almost hear it...

Mierswa & Kluska is a collective project of two amazing fashion photographers, Andreas and Markus currently based in Munich.
