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.
