Once again National Geographic published a photograph taken by our staff-photographer Andreas Baier. The image is entitled «Living Room Lion»; and is in use for the «Strange Terrains» story. The National Geographic Photographer Renan Ozturk, as a picture editor in charge for this assignment, wrote about this shot: «This is one of the most wildly bizarre and creative interpretations of the strange terrains assignment. Horrifying, fascinating and pink. Great depth and framing with beautiful angles of the walls as well a clear subject with the lion.» From a submission pool of 7.000+ images 23 photographs have been chosen for the final story which has been freshly pressed.

Previously published photographs by Andreas Baier on National Geographic’s online plattform:
1.) «Mother & Child» Story: A Child Will Be Born.
2.) «Undiscovered» Story: Bathtub Breakfast.

Greenhouse: «The Weekend Has Just Landed»

14 Oct

Björn and Benny are back from outer-space in order to save the world.

Do you remember Björn and Benny from the legendary pop-group ABBA? After spending some glorious time-out in outer space they now returned as marsian monks to provide us with the luxurious advantage of getting in touch with their new album ARRIVAL which is nothing but a perfectly carried out musical re-design of their former album ARRIVAL featuring a helicopter and all four band members on the cover. Do you remember?

The time when ABBA saved our childhood.

Do you remember chalk hearts melting on a playground wall? Do you remember dawn escapes from moon washed college halls? Do you remember the cherry blossom in the market square? Do you remember I thought it was confetti in our hair? Ehm, sorry: wrong chapter.

Do you remember how the original album started with the track When I kissed the teacher? They changed the title into When I kissed the preacher. The rest of the lyrics, however, remained originally. Due to the fact that since their separation from each other Björn and Benny are now forced to do their home cleanings without any female support; a circumstance that influenced their style of musical arrangements: less high hats, more bass drums. It’s so disturbing but so effective as well, isn’t it?

In addition, to them, everything in general and in public’s mind seem to be based on topics such as climate change and the rescue of the world’s most important tree hugger number one: the poor, poor polar bear. Consequently, they re-formed themselves, new branded as Greenhouse – with greater success if we are willing to take a fantastic look at the charts:

Björn’s and Benny’s tremendous chart success as Greenhouse

Almost every radio and tv channel all over the planet put Greenhouse on their list of heavily rotating music tracks and clips. This is what Björn and Benny call The never ending greenhouse effect. So, the force may be with them. For the rest of all times.

Celine Dion: «Let The Concrete Sing In Order To Rescue The Mechanisms Of Global Warming»

9 Jun

People say that the unfortunate ship Titanic did not sink completely. They say that a small piece of whatever remained and was brought to justice, pardon, brought to the beach where it becomes now a transresponding part of an irreversible art project during documenta (13). They point out that this art project proudly carries the energy saving title Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

Furthermore, they announce that the instability of visual experiences which had been made in the past will not be helpful in the present because of the fact that global warming changes everything. It even turns poor polar bears into not perfectly well tasting schnitzels. Therefore people say that global warming shall not be ignored, or even worse: slightly underestimated. People also say that we all have to transform ourselves into a spritual form of global warming boxing gloves – to fight back, no matter into which direction.

People say that we all need a verbal formula that shall be spelled while transforming and while constantly watching the animation above. Here it is: «Cool as a cucumber the carrot penetrates the pedestrian in order to make his padding immortal.» (If you are a vegetarian, please replace the term pedestrian by the word tree).

Repeat your spell as often and as intensively as even nessesary. Do not make fool of this. Rescuing our holy beloved planet is a serious business and must not be interfered by fruit cakes of any kind, or left in the uncapable hands of half-time humans. What we need are pros. Real pros. Be a good boy. Or a good girl. Just be one of them.
