AIPAD Photography Show

Last month, I attended the AIPAD Photography Show New York (March 17-21). It's the largest and most important photography art fair in the USA. The Bonni Benrubi Gallery exhibited a 40"x40" (100x100cm) print of one of my most popular photographs: "Private Property"

New Work: St. Petersburg

A brand-new portfolio is now online - featuring 36 photographs from the Russian city of St Petersburg and it's surroundings - taken during the intense 2009-10 winter. Russia known for it's cold winters, hasn't seen such a brutal winter itself for decades, with record-breaking snowfall and temperatures below -25°C in St Petersburg. According to media reports, St Petersburg hasn't seen that much snow in the past 130 years. This series was planned for several years, but due to the lack of snow in the past years, I had to postpone it several times. The results are overwhelming, and I think it is one of my best and for me one of the most important portfolios I have created. Prints are available in the following sizes: 30x30cm (ed. of 15) , 50x50cm (ed. of 10), and 100x100cm (ed. of 5). Click HERE to view the new series.

Solo-Exhibitions in Paris and Switzerland

Two solo-exhibitions opened in early April - both will run thru end of May and feature a wide selection of my work. Prints in various sizes are on display. The exhibition in Paris (at Acte 2 Galerie) is my first solo-show in France, and it is also one of my largest exhibitions I had so far. The gallery is very close to the famous Avenue des Champs-Elysees and Arc de Triomphe. The exhibition in Switzerland (at AD-Galerie) has fewer prints, although it stretches over three floors and is only minutes from the scenic Lake Geneva.
