After the jury-exhibitor dinner battle carried out between Kristof Mulack, the winner of the cooking show 'The Taste of Germany', the restaurant Parker Bowles and burger specialists Pacifico, the event which took place above the rooftops of Berlin segued seamlessly into the UPDATE16BERLIN after-party. Kristof Mulack (kristofmulack.com) kicked off the cooking battle with his taste explosions en miniature. Dora Joker's producers from Barcelona continued to rave about his carrot shooters even hours later. After a brief suspenseful break, Parker Bowles (parker-bowles.com) entered the ring with a sensational new version of fish & chips, followed by burgers à la Pacifico (pacifico-berlin.com) – offering the perfect combination for every taste! All followed by an absolute must-see grand finale: a steaming desert show performed by talented Chef Kristof Mulack.

After her SCREENINGS award in 2013, Munich-resident fashion photographer Elizaveta PORODINA won Gold in 2016 in the category ART and Silver in the category PORTRAIT. We congratulate the shooting star, who is now no longer an insider tip, and were very pleased about her visit at UPDATE16BERLIN. Here for you on GoSee is a Mini Quest with the darling of all fashion magazines:
What all has happened since your SCREENINGS award in 2013? I packed my bags and explored the world – from the desert flowers of Morocco and the national parks of North America to the fisher villages of Sweden and beyond. On my travels, I learned a lot about my limits, my photography and how to push my limits with my photography. I changed the core of my style, I shot a Vogue cover and laid the foundation for my first book project.
You are on the road a lot – where did you like it most? Admittedly, one of my absolute highlights was the production for Conde Nast Traveller UK in the charming Villa Feltrinelli on Lake Garda. Nature, the air, the incredibly picturesque views and perhaps the sweetest lemons of the world provided a unique atmosphere – and realizing the topic of the “Royal Dynasty” would not have been easier for me in any other place. One more is a newer production for the Traveller, for which I went to the blue pearl, Chefchaouen in Morocco – an old town where you will never find a facade in any color but blue – unforgettable moments guaranteed.
Where will you go next? I am in New York at the moment working on my book project. Afterward, I will travel to several cities in Europe – including Berlin – to give lectures on my work at creative festivals and events.
Favorite destinations? Namibia, Armenia and Mongolia.
Why? Because I have not crossed them off my list yet. (Elizaveta laughs...)
What in your opinion is the secret of your success? I never do anything I don't believe in. I also rarely make a difference between personal and commercial work – no matter what I do, the bar is set to the maximum, and my heart beats for the idea. Plus, the model, or rather the muse, is one of the most important people on set and is treated with the same respect as everyone else on the team. I dedicate myself to the job with all my heart and soul; people in my work environment also contribute a lot of energy and creativity which can flow freely. My profession is my passion, my vocation, it makes me happy, euphoric – and this high is somehow conveyed in the photos.
Two words on Helmut Newton? Photographic father. I am honored to have exhibited with him at FOAM Museum.
Fashion vs. art – what does your heart beat for more? In my world, these two elements are connected to one another and mutually amplify their effectiveness.
You are like us and just can't get enough of the very, very special world of Elizaveta? Then contact her agent – Elizaveta is represented by GoSee member SONJA HEINTSCHEL.
