Shop • GoSeeAWARDS14 winner Markus Henttonen publishes his road movie 'Twisted Tales Road to Hope' - a visual search for paradise lost. Illustrated book and Collector's Edition by Hatje Cantz

27.08.2015 • The poetic touch of Markus Henttonen's artwork already convinced the jury members at last year's GoSeeAWARDS. Now the series titled 'Twisted Tales. Road to Hope' has finally been published in the form of a book by Hatje Cantz. The photographer born 1976 in Finland’s Lahti takes us on a journey. His road movie leads us through a land which is a mirror image of life itself: With his atmospheric images, he shows us seemingly random everyday situations or also very personal experiences from the past and dreamlike sequences, always with an emotional undertone and open for interpretation.

"Twisted Tales is like life, a unique and exciting travel with joy and sadness of desire and despair combining the most personal with things common. Memories, dreams and reality mix up to profound layers. Despite the flashbacks from the past and the unexpected turns this journey is going forward. It almost feels like a puzzle that will never really be complete. There will always be something little out of place, a little bit twisted... :"

As a special treat, Hatje Cantz is offering two...

in the movies • New in cinemas: COCONUT HERO, an enchantingly tragic independent comedy about the meaning of life. Director: Florian COSSEN c/o FRÖHLICH MANAGEMENT

26.08.2015 • The edgy independent comedy COCONUT HERO is already the second film by Director Florian COSSEN to be shown in movie theaters after 'Das Lied in mir' (The Song in Me). In the comedy with an equally challenging as breathtaking topic, life battles death – with casualties on both sides. The German-Canadian independent comedy was filmed in Canada.

The subject: no friends, no father, no perspective – Mike Tyson is 16 years old, is tired of life and wants to die. He writes his own obituary and shoots himself in the head. To his great disappointment, he doesn't wake up in heaven the next day, but in the city hospital. That is when his fate suddenly turns: During a routine examination, doctors discover a walnut-sized tumor in his head. Mike can hardly believe his luck and hides the disease in order to avoid the life-saving operation. Certain death before his eyes, Mike's feelings about his environment change – he finds love.

Shop • ProfiFoto issue 9/15 - ProfiFoto magazine's September 2015 issue is now available at newsstands with a special on the topic of Sony A7R II

24.08.2015 • The Sony α full-frame system with presently five E-mount models in the α7 family is one of today's most innovative camera systems and is becoming more and more an alternative for professionals and switching DSLR users. The new top model α7R II is ringing in a new era of professional photography with mirrorless full-frame cameras. Find out everything about the α7 family in the special.

The technology section of the new ProfiFoto issue provides laboratory and field tests of the Canon EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R. Even before the two 50 megapixel models from the EOS 5er series came out on the market, they were the cause of speculation and controversial discussion. Time for an unexcited background report which presents the facts and combines the results from the lab with the practical field experience.

Next up is the Panasonic Lumix GX8. Photograph first – then set the focus – that sounds like light-field technology. But Panasonic takes a different technical approach with the Post Focus function. Plus the new magazine comes with spreads, among others, from the Leica Oskar Barnack...

The result is a cover album with a touch of easy summer happy listening or is it more happy easy summer listening? Whatever. The campaign for the new album HELLO AGAIN from KLEE aka Suzie Kerstgens and Sten Servaes was mainly captured at one of the duo's favorite places in Cologne: Hotel marsil.
