Capturing Movement

Life doesn’t stand still. How true! This is why we teamed up with EyeEm, the creative community for photography, and launched a new Photo Mission called Capturing Movement today.

Whilst much of photography is about capturing a posed, still scene, there’s an art to truly capturing the dynamism, speed and movement of real life. Life is full of activity and movement, and the mission is all about communicating that energy in a photograph

We will publish a selection of finalists with full credits – on scroll, printed, designed and handbound in Berlin. Three winners will be selected, whose pictures will be central to the publication. They will receive the first copies of the finished scroll as their reward when it is published.

Since today, this new book can already be pre-ordered through our Kickstarter campaign.

All finalists will be exhibited at Wettbureau in Berlin on June 20th, where one of the three winners will be selected through an “Audience award” by the attendees of the event.

The mission Capturing Movement is online on EyeEm from June 8th, deadline is June 15th, 2015.

Our very first vernissage

This weekend was full of adventures.

On Friday we had a great Vernissage at the lovely Wettbureau in Wedding. After intense preparations at full speed during the last week and thanks to Lea’s magic, we opened our first ever exhibition at 7pm. We showed our first publications: some great images by Larry Yust, extracts from Simon Becker’s Eurylochus and a fascinating work-in-progress version of Wilma and Wolf by Luisa Stenzel. It turned out to be an evening full of summer atmosphere, a cheerful audience and the combination of art and scrolls. Thanks to everyone for coming and the great feedback you gave us.

This opening was followed today by something much more intimate – the first ever public reading of our children’s book Wilma and Wolf by Luisa Stenzel. And it was great fun. Accompanied by brezels, the much beloved Fruchtpapier and coffee for the older kids among us, the lively Esther read for us. It was a delight to see the joy and fascination of all the kids following Wilma and the Wolf on their way through the scroll.

We hope you enjoyed our events and see you soon!
