Design + Kreativmarkt – Alte Feuerwache – Cologne – Digital

Today I was at the Design + Kreativmarkt and found some interesting stuff to look at. Not all of it was my cup of tea, but I liked the small, cosy feel of the market.

I bought two tiles from Konstantin Holz (click here for his website) and got to use it already on my table 🙂

There is a lot of new stuff to discover, so I will look out for more events like these and try to find new areas for myself. It can’t hurt!

I hope you like the photos and feel free to get in touch via facebook or my site!

Khitos, Khitos or how I do not rest until everything is okey – Blogchange #2359

Soo…what I did: I imported everything from khitostrol.wordpress.com into my main blog. Why? Because it seemed that everything that I did while being on the other site got directed into my writing blog, where I really did not do much in the last months and won’t in the next.

I know, it is a rather sudden to change everything, but I think the three followers can handle it 😀

Let’s see if this works out. If not, I will change it again or stick to this forever.

Thailand, Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai, one of the cities I spend the most time in. First there was the overnight train from Ayutthaya and then a lot of temples. At one of the temples, the Doi Suthep, there were some kids wearing traditional clothes. This was of course a nice motive. The Problem however is that they were there for a reason: Tourism. The always wanted money in exchange for a photo. It is sad to see them only standing there and smiling only for that reason. I did take a shot without knowing this, but it’s just not genuine. I did not like it as much. I will just show another shot I took, where they were chilling on the steps to the temple. I felt this was more interesting than a fake smile.

In Chiang Mai I strolled around a lot and found a great hotel, where you had to go through a nice hallway with pictures on the walls. It was a bit curved, which build nice lines. Another nice place was the Wat Chedi Luang, which was one of the most beautiful temples I’ve seen in Thailand. There were also monks who sang a song and hummed. It was really great to experience this.

I hope you like the photos! Feel free to contact me via Twitter or visit my facebook page 🙂

Nicolás Muller

While visiting Marocco, I also was in Marrakech for a couple of days. There I went to the Maison de la photographie with it’s exhibition about photography in Marocco. I am not the one to tell you who is who in the photography world, far from it, but I I found one photographer there I wanted to remember: Nicolás Muller. Apparently there is also a snowboarder with this name, plus Muller is not that famous as far as I could saw, so it is not that easy to find too much about him.

Most of this hungarian photographers work is from Tangier, where I did not go unfortunately. Nevertheless the exhibition showed a wide variation of Marocco and it’s past. A lot looked like the present time, only more build up in structure and architecture. Muller deliverered mostly street photographs of Tangier, but with these you could appreciate the culture and the artistic form in which he shot the photos.

I really liked the focussing on some people in his works or mostly the group shots where you can easily find something new with another glance. Plus, he also had a great timing of shooting the photo.

Here is one of his photos. More can be found at this site.
