I was born and grew up there - a little village in the west of Hanover, Germany. The village lies next to a large lake called "Steinhuder Meer" where you can sail, surf and swim in summer and ice-skate and play ice hockey in winter - provided that the winter is very cold and the lake freezes. Unfortunately, we are in a touristic place and thousands of visitors come every year to stay there for holiday or to relax. So there is hardly a place for the natives to stay besides in/on the lake ? I love to sit on one of the many piers, watching the birds, the boats, the tourists and the sailing boats. It's simply relaxing and it is home to me.

This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.
Talking about the creation of the world. A big bang, meteors hitting planets, ice age and tectonic breakdancing. The world is an incredible start up and the landscapes, that were created through the elements and time. Sometimes your eyes can still see this amazing process in a timelapse. Such a mystical place is Lake Toba in North Sumatra. Or as the locals call it: Danau Toba.

Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."
