GoSee Tip : The Play Studios in Hamburg invite to 'Friday Rewind' on 29 March and present a pop-up exhibition on Bettina Lewin's photographic homage to astronomer Caroline Lucretia Herschel

Time for Friday Rewind! This time, the legendary pop-up exhibition 'Friday Rewind' is not only about photography but also about astronomy and fashion:

For THE OBSERVATORY, Hamburg-based photographer Bettina Lewin c/o NERGER M&O took her team to the Bergedorf Observatory. 'Because fashion photography,' as Lewin sees it, 'should also tell stories of people, of passion and hard work, of big and small discoveries'. Coming to life in the historical walls was the work of astronomer Caroline Lucretia Herschel (1750-1848). Only today is Herschel's research truly appreciated – she discovered 14 nebulas and countless deep-sky objects, just to name a few. Bettina Lewin's poetic images pay tribute to the beauty and accuracy of her mindset.

Creative Director of the photo series was Regine Berndt from Leagas Delaney Hamburg, the locations were scouted by Angelika Bäuml, styling of Persina Tesic's c/o M4 Models was taken care of by Jürgen Claussen with jewelry from Wempe. Production was in the hands of North South Productions and Production Department Hamburg with Ivo Boderke. Jeannette Johansson c/o Klaus Stiegemeyer took care of hair & make-up.

New on March 29: 'Friday Rewind' falls on a Thursday! Holy Thursday, the one just before Easter. This evening social is presented in the Play Studios by Bettina Lewin, Play Hamburg and the lawyers from WLHK. All visitors are promised galactic drinks in the fog-free Play Studios from 7pm to 1am. The Play team, made up of photographer duo Köster & Lumma and Creative Director Holger Pietsch, is looking forward to seeing you.

Play Studio Hamburg invited on 24 November to Friday Rewind! A night with good drinks, networking, colleagues and friends – and the photo project 'Cowboys: East Germany' by Eric O'Connell

Play with us! Finally another Friday Rewind! On 24 November, the Hamburg Play Studios invited to the legendary pop-up gallery in the Schanzenviertel district: A night with photos, good drinks, networking, cowboys, colleagues and friends. Photographer duo Köster & Lumma and Holger Pietsch (Creative Director, used to be Scholz & Friends NeuMarkt) are PLAY (Play Studios, Lippmannstrasse 53, 22769 Hamburg, doors open at 7:30pm).

Friday Rewind was conceived as a monographic exhibition for contemporary photographers, which grants insight into the latest projects of the exhibiting artists. “We want to show private and personal works, i.e. the heart-felt projects of advertising and product photographers. For his very edgy and touching portraits, American photographer Eric O´Connell met up with East-German cowboys over a period of ten years, whose lives are all about freedom, camp fires and genuine communism,” says the studio team. Friday Rewind is organized together with the law firm WLHK.

Cowboys: East Germany is a project spanning more than a decade, exploring the adopted identities of a people from former East Germany who identify as cowboys. Existing originally as a rebellious response to the confinements of communism – imagining a different kind of freedom and individualism – it has been reimagined as a response to the perceived pitfalls of capitalism and adapted as a lifestyle. This project is collected by the Wittliff Collections at Texas State University. The project includes nearly 100 portraits and a film as well as graduate-level academic research.”

PLAY HAMBURG rents out daylight location studios for shoots and events in the Hanseatic city. Besides their studios in the Schanzenviertel district, they also rent out a special location on the water. Prahm 6 is located in the port of Hamburg and offers chilly port flair and very special daylight, perfect for fashion, food, and stills – both in- and outdoors. In a former smokehouse in the vacation region Altes Land, PLAY HAMBURG has found a place to warm the hearts and astound the eyes of photographers: Blackened bricks in all shades possible, black beams and new corners and protrusions everywhere.
