Two Way Lens and Stefan Heyne

Two Way Lens proudly presents Stefan Heyne

I am very happy that I could add another wonderful photographer to my project. This time it's Stefan Heyne, a photographer from Germany.

Stefan's work is conceptual, quiet, elegant, painting like and very impressive. Looking at his large scale photographs is like meditation.

A very good overview and information about his work gives his book "The Noise" from the German publisher Kehrer.

You can order "The Noise" here, or here, or here

Stefan is not only a great photographer but also a great stage designer. Please visit also his website for his stage design. Super cool stuff!!!

Artists Opportunity

Designers Against AIDS Creative Challenge is a great opportunity to gain exposure and raise awareness of the fight against AIDS.

Ninette Murk, former fashion journalist and founder of Designers Against AIDS is inviting creatives to submit photos, cartoons, etc. using elements of pop culture in order to help bring back the sexiness of safe sex. Safe sex is just as important now as it was twenty years ago and this is exactly what DAA is looking for.

The winning design will be used for global DAA ad campaigns.

This is truly a great opportunity for young artists to showcase their skills on a world scale as well as help bring awareness to a very important topic.



More info and how to participate can be found here



This opportunity can be found on Talenthouse.

Talenthouse is a global creative platform for artists, providing opportunities for recognition, collaboration and compensation.
