Right before I packed up my things to move to the north of Germany I was asked by the german art magazine MONOPOL to take portraits of 8 local art collectors for their special ‘Rheinland’ issue.

Can’t deny that meeting all these wonderful people with their very own way of thinking about art was extremely inspiring and made this assignment one of the best I was lucky to have taken on so far.

Exactly three weeks ago I moved to Hamburg and I have been falling in love with this city every single day since.
I started working on a new project and I’m looking for people who’d like to help out. Please get in touch if you’re interested in handwriting things down for me. (Instructions will follow.)
Before there’s going to be some free work, check out a little spread I shot for NIDO Magazine earlier this year (click through for more):

Also, I updated my website a tiny bit. Get comfortable and have look –

Aus Liebe zum Kochen

Okay so, I made a book. Most of you will know that already because I’ve bragged about it a lot. On Facebook and Instagram and everywhere else I had the chance. And I’m sorry to admit that I probably will keep on doing that.


But really, I made a book. With my wonderful friend Yvonne who in a way I was meant to meet and who became such a big part of my life already. Why that? Because we sought out to make this book. A book, that since yesterday is available in (hopefully) every bookstore (in Germany at least) and which is full of pictures I took over the last year. Which we poured so much of our hearts in and that is filled with stories of inspiring people. It’s about love and food and making the world a even more wonderful place by  something we used as a working title for months: conviviality.







I could tell you more about how truly wonderful everything turned out. About the people I met. About the food I ate. About the amazing feedback I got already. – Actually, I won’t. Because in some ways I just don’t know how to describe it after all.
But before I encourage you another time to buy that book (german only, though), I want to let you in on a little life lesson I’ve learned while doing this project: You’ll come across people who will tell you that you made a worng turn at some point. They will tell you that what you’re doing is nice and you’ll instantly will hear the ‘but’ in their words rolling towards you. And they will tell you that you need to be different than what you appear to be. Most of them mean no harm, really, most of them just don’t know it better. (And the ones who know better are just evil people and you need to get away from them immediately.) Anyhow: They are wrong! As long as you trust your gut and something I would call your inner truth, you’ll be just fine. You just have to keep going. It might hurt. But being honest to yourself and your dreams will pay off. I promise. And now: Buy the book!
(There are already some write-ups running on a lot of lovely blogs and you can enter to win copies. So you might wanna try this first: Lykkelig and Gourmet Guerilla to start with.)

  6. HIDDEN & PATTERN - A Visual Scrapbook // FOR SALE!

    You guys, I’ll be moving. To Hamburg, to be exact.
    (I’m still looking for a flat though, so if you know anything, hit me up!)

    But as I have accumulated too much stuff over the years I’ll be selling out a couple of things the next days.

    One of them is my thesis:

    Because I want them gone, you can grab a signed copy for 15€/25$ (shipping is inlcuded). Email me and place an order with ‘Hidden & Pattern’ in the subject.

     
  7. Aus Liebe zum Kochen – on Instagram. (25 pictures: Visiting 25 amazing places filled with great food and great minds.)
This week our work on the book will come to an end. Sadly in a way, because the past ten months were just extraordinarily wonderful. And I still cannot believe that so very soon you’ll be walking into a bookstore and buy a book that has been made with so much care and love (by my dearest friend Yvonne and me, obviously).      Official release date is February 18th, but I’ll keep you posted.

  10. Wiesbaden, December 2013.
I took this polaroid early this morning at my parents house: I spent my teenage years looking out of this window.
I don’t know about you, but I had a crazy year. (I’m just realizing that I say that every year…) But really, it was! Fantastic most of the time: With ups and downs, how life’s supposed to be, I guess. Unexpected all the way through: extreme at some point, but never hopeless. Knowing that next year will be even crazier I can just hope for as much love and appreciation as I’m thankful to have experienced this year.
Having said this: Thank You and Happy New Year – xc

  13. Aus Liebe zum Kochen
    – das Video.

    Oh boy, this is so very special to post for me today!

    Ten months ago I started a journey with my friend Yvonne: to travel the world, to visit inspiring people in their kitchens, to meet creative minds with an incredible perception of cooking and how the world should or could see everything that comes along with food.

    It has been an extraordinary time for us and I’m just so grateful for everything that has happened along the way. The book that’s been made while traveling will be out next year. Until then, enjoy this little motion teaser and stay tuned for everything else. x

New York also never disappoints me in bringing out the beauty of meeting new people: with some of these you instantly share what you keep your mind and heart occupied with. I still find encounter like this wonderfully surprising and more than delightful.
