Thank you Brieke

A big shout out to the people from Brieke in Frankfurt.

I am invited to the show WILD THINGS! Photography for Animal Lovers at Stricola Contemporary, 3 Wooster Street, New York.

For this show I have to get my images printed and get them shipped to New York. So far everything fine and nothing special. But the timeframe is very tight. The show will be opened on May 2nd. The People from Brieke are very professional and make the best prints in Frankfurt. They work with the photographer very close and fulfill any special need.

I couldn't tell how happy I was and still am to get my prints from them.

So, if you have a show in Germany and need prints in best quality, consider Brieke for the job.

Yaniv Waissa

Yaniv Waissa is a photographer from Israel. He has many very interesting projects on his website.

The photos below are from his series Butterflies I Haven't Seen There

This is what Yaniv writes about this project:

It is unexpectedly now, in an era where life in general and photography specifically, is being digitized, when I choose to go back in time. Back to older techniques, to the good old photographic material. I chose to use a variety of plastic toy cameras, light weight and mobile and a variety of films and polaroids.

I deal with a collective- cultural memory, which I embrace for my own personal needs. I go on a physical journey with my camera; a visual journey of the eyes, imagination and recollection, An emotional journey back in time, to the districts of the memory, districts that contain no comfort. I deal with the present through the past. I capture views, places and objects filled with echoes from the past. A past that is also a present and that lives and revives the memories, the collective traumas and my personal emotions.

I deal with the holocaust, through the camera; I seek to understand, to immortalize something hidden in the sights. I try to ignore the world of images widely connected to the holocaust. I intend to create a new system of associations that will activate personal charges: mine and the viewers'.
