Project Statement "Black Gold"

Dubai - a metropolis that has reached worldwide acclaim for especially one thing: skyscrapers. It appears to be the model of a city of the future, in which on the one hand one cannot escape a constant astonishment, but on the other hand is left with a perplex feeling and an extinguished sense of belonging. Almost nothing evokes the memory of an oriental city in the desert that used to offer an unique allurement through its markets and compatriots. Even though, exactly these authentic and real life places are what globalization makes many of us yearn after. Dubai is a city that has, on the surface, distanced itself from its roots, and is a city in which the remains of the oil-boom during the twentieth century vanish. In between the hundreds of meter high skyscrapers, the foundation of this wealth, the so called black gold, is hard to surmise. In contrast, the district that represents the origin of this metropolis made of glass still vividly embodies the past with its mosques and spice markets.

My fifth book Black Gold aims to establish exactly this awareness for the heritage of Dubai in the viewer’s mind. It is a glance behind a perfectly polished city, into the heart of the fishermen and market criers. An attempt, besides all of the anonymity and fast-paced live we are all faced with, to open the eyes for all that otherwise slides into oblivion.

#wasteoffilm: Weekly Favorites (04/2018)

This week's selection of images includes six in comparison to usually five photographs, I just couldn't decide between two shots; so I figured: why not include them both? Hope you enjoy this week's weekly #wasteoffilm feature as always, and make sure to always tag your images shot on film with #wasteoffilm. By the way, we have reached over 50,000 posts using the tag, which leaves me simply stunned! 

How can you enter your images? All you have to do is to tag your images shot on film with #wasteoffilm, and I will pick my favorite images and display these five in the following week.  There is a feature each and every week, so make sure to keep using the hashtag!
