Events • 'Faces of a Vibrant Economy 2018' for Global Player GRANT THORNTON UK - with photos by Jon Attenborough and JSR Agency

28.11.2018 • Photographer Jon Attenborough and London-based JSR AGENCY were booked by GRANT THORNTON UK with the project 'Faces of a Vibrant Economy 2018'. Grant Thornton International is a global, company of members with some $ 5.00 billion in annual sales and approximately 50,000 employees in more than 135 countries. The project included a mentee contest: The task was to find five protégés on Instagram who get to assist Jon Attenborough in his shoots of the 100 most innovative business people. It goes without saying that the protagonists were scattered all over the UK.

"Jon travelled the length and breadth of the UK – as far north as the Isle of Harris in Scotland. The project was completed by an exhibition held to celebrate the portraits. The 'Faces' included the Managing Director or Isle of Harris Distilleries, Catherine Johnstone CBE – CEO of the Royal Voluntary Service, Jenn Merrick founder of Earth Station Community Brewery." JSR AGENCY tells GoSee, and we have several portraits for you.

About – Jon Attenborough left England and headed to Australia after graduating from Plymouth...

Events • Paris Photo 2018 in 250 with photos by Casting Director Rolf Scheider for you on GoSee – the 22nd Edition is marked by excellent presentations, plenty of skin, old friends and solid sales

22.11.2018 • Rolf Scheider was once again at the world's largest photography trade fair this year for GoSee, where he met up with artists, curators, gallery proprietors – and presents his highlights and magical moments exclusively here on GoSee.

"Paris Photo for me is the ultimate international photography trade fair, the place to be in the world of photography." says Rolf Scheider. Some 68,876 visitors, artists, influential institutions, private collectors, sophisticated amateurs and a very international audience visited the salon in Paris over the course of five days this November. The 168 galleries and 31 publishing houses chalked up significant sales.

"I visited the fair several days for hours on end and couldn't get enough of it: There were so many new photos and videos to discover and people who fascinated me. And it was just great to stroll around and catch up with old friends like photographer Iris Brosch or artist Paolo Calia after so many years. I also mingled with the French Minister of Culture by the way."

Rolf continues: "It all took place in a wonderfully inspiring...

Events • Photographer duo BAM takes home the Public Voting Award with 'Hocke' at the Gosee Awards 2018 in the category 'Transportation' - Congratulations!

09.11.2018 • Right on time for the transportation special and shortly after Update Berlin and the GoseeAwards 2018, we present you once again on Gosee the Public Voting winner spread "HOCKE" in the category Transportation, which was photographed by Cologne-based photographer duo BAM, aka Ben And Martin.

With "HOCKE", the two photographers shift their focus away from styled high-end product photography and high-gloss, polished & perfectly illuminated luxury cars toward authenticity and attitude. The Golf 1 – produced as the VW Rabbit since 1978 in the VW plant in Uitenhage/South Africa – shapes the streetscape of Cape Town just like the Toyota Tazz. Whether Grandma's original or a lowered pussy magnet – they always give their owners real street cred.

BAM tells GoSee: "Shortly after sunset on Muizenberg Beach in Cape Town, they created their very own look & feel with their owners – somewhere between authenticity and surrealism." With "HOCKE", the duo shows a how-to on swag even without a Lambo or Bentley.

Events • BFF TRIEBWERK BERLIN – an exhibition on the topic of Berlin, vernissage on UPDATE SALON Friday – we have photos from the opening on GoSee

30.10.2018 • More than 50 photographers from the Professional Association of Freelance Photographers and Film Creators (BFF) in Berlin with guests from all over Germany invited to the halls of Berlin’s Kultur Brauerei on UPDATE Friday where they presented their work on the topic of 'Reverse Forward'. "They have thus entered into the area of conflict between moving in reverse, a total reversal and passively stopping for a moment, boldly going forward, overstepping and actively transmitting. The diversity of topic fields dealt with by these photographers leads to very different answers. Melancholy and excitement, parting, joy, progress, and loss, political statements, multi-layered perspectives on ephemerality and striking manifestations in social discourse create an inspiring dialogue," BFF tells us about the exhibition. Plus, 14 photographers grant a glimpse behind the scenes of professional photography in lectures on their projects, in the context of commissioned works and personal concepts.
