Christa Klubert : on the trail of the Massai - photo book by Aernout OVERBEEKE, backstage at Agatha Christie's 'The Mousetrap', SONY ERICSSON campaign, THE HAGUE DANCES and exhibiting at the UPdate 11

On his many travels to Tanzania, Aernout OVERBEEKE photographed the local Massai way of life and habits, capturing their lifestyle in moving photographs. The resulting series is titled ‘Ndoto, Tanzania Dream’.

It all began with a project, which saw Aernout photograph actors and dancers in his studio. He used ethnic masks, weapons and jewellery as props – objects that he had collected on his travels through Africa, Australia, Japan and New Guinea. The project also took him to Tanzania.

The Massai live as semi-nomads with their herds of animals, the young men are brought up as warriors, to defend their tribes. Aernout gave a small group three goats and spent some time with them. The results are a black and white series, as well as colour images, which juxtapose the red of Massai dress with the red blood of slaughtered animals. The exhibition in Amsterdam ended in January, but the book is still available for purchase.

Nick BALLON was commissioned by the German ADAC travel magazine to shoot an editorial behind the scenes of ‘The Mousetrap’ theatre production in London. It is the world’s longest running play and several traditions had to be overcome thanks to powers of persuasion, so that Nick was finally able to access backstage areas.

The Berlin and London-based photographer’s picture aesthetic is grounded in attention to detail, his focus and unique visual language are reflected in all his areas of photography, from documentary, editorial and commercial.

Martin W. MAIER travelled to Barcelona to shoot the current SONY ERICSSON campaign. The visual look was created using special film lighting; Stefanie Wencek added the finishing touches in post-production. Since the motifs will be used for the Asian and European markets, close attention was paid to a selection of international models. The agency was McCann Erickson; Bettina Blum and Tina Krakow took care of the art buying.

Martin lives and works in Berlin as an experimental photographer and director. He specialises in editorials, advertising and music.

The Hague likes to describe itself as the city of dance. Gerrit SCHREURS shot twelve motifs of dancers at various city sites for THE HAGUE DANCES! organisation. The images are on display at the town hall in impressive seven metre wide formats. The series was also displayed at De Passage, the oldest indoor shopping centre in the Netherlands.

Gerrit is from The Hague and characterises his work as carefully created compositions, which places great importance on experimentation with light. He is always on the look for adventures in new places and new techniques, such as animation.

Catch up with Christa Klubert in person at the UPdate on the 6th of May in Frankfurt.
