Claudia Bitzer : Feast Your Eyes exhibition in New York, visiting Turkey's best clubs for TUI, design awards and Lamborghini Bravo project

The New York Photo Festival will feature an exhibition that is all about food – aptly named 'Feast your Eyes'. Part of the production: photography duo SHIMON & TAMMAR. The three-week long exhibition was opened on the 6th of January.

Visitors can marvel at countless images from the gloriously colourful world of food -from the raw to the artfully prepared- in the PowerHouse Arena in Brooklyn.

Working where other people go on holiday – Oscar VAN DE BEEK enjoyed his work with travel agency TUI. He spent two weeks travelling to the most beautiful clubs in Turkey and captured countless sights in his photographs: from sports activities in the crystal clear water to some relaxing hours in the picturesque natural environment and finally a romantic candle-light dinner in the evening.

CD Rolf Leger and AB Alice Feja from Kolle Rebbe, Hamburg as well as producer Klaus Hered were all part of the production team.

The K&S AG 2010 annual and sustainability report was awarded the prestigious DDC 2011 Silver Award by the DDC (Deutsche Designer Club). The report has now been awarded one of the highest German design honours by the professional jury of the German Design Club.

During the awards ceremony, the jury found particular praise for the photographs by Oscar van de Beek, the excellent concept, top-class typographic quality as well as the confident handling of the demanding and challenging format. The DDC Silver Award for the Dax 30 company K+S AG's annual report is yet another laurel, following a top position in the design ranking by the manager magazine and winning the 'Berliner Type' Award 2011.

In his freelance work 'Around Ten', Clemens ASCHER presents a juxtaposition of dreamy memories and a post-apocalyptic vision of the future. While the Lamborghini Bravo by Bertone and the concrete buildings are reminiscent of the 1970s, the lack of further hints towards a possible setting, date and time makes it hard to position the visuals within an understandable context. Hence, the photographs merely suggest a story– not unlike film stills – that continues to evolve and unfold in the eye of the beholder.
