division – a portrait made with non – visible light

I have the feeling people are more and more divided these days, thats the reason I created these portraits.



With these portraits I show the division in visual form. On the left side the blindfold is blocking the sight – people can not see clearly, the faded tattoos are standing for a faded reality and the fist shows anger and caginess.
Where on the right side you see eyes that see through the blindfold, high contrast tattoos and an open hand that is ready to help and hug.
This images is also part of our new Album in the United Art Gallery:
https://unitedart.gallery/albums/justice-for-all-inspired-by-black-lives-matter/ You can join us with your own art about this topic. Just click the “be a part of it” and choose the topic you want to submit to.



I shot the first portrait with the wet collodion process (Sensible to UV light only) and with a digital infrared camera. The second portrait was shot with a Rollei Ortho 25 Film (Sensible to UV light only) and a Rollei Infrared 400 film. In UV light everything that is blue will get bright and red dark. Because tattoos often contain blue color they get brighter and the red blindfold gets black. In IR light it is the opposite, thats why you can see through the blindfold and get contrasty tattoos.

Thanks again to Alex and Bernhard for helping me, as you can see in the video, there were a lot of tasks to do in a short amount of time to bring this portrait to live

Top of Austria 9-Ball Challenge

click or scroll down for the English version

Lang lang ist es her, aber manchmal fotografiere ich Pool Billard doch noch. Diesmal habe ich im ORF Zentrum die Top of Austria 9-Ball Challenge digital festgehalten. Um auch wirklich leise zu sein, hat mir Sony die Alpha A9 II samt 70-200 und 100-400mm Objektiv zu Verfügung gestellt. Wirklich ein schönes Arbeitsgerät mit einem tollen Autofocus.
Maximilian Lechner, Jasmin und Albin Ouschan sind gegeneinander angetreten. Mario He sollte auch dabei sein, mußte aber wegen einer Verletzung zuhause bleiben. Es war wieder schön dabei zu sein, Danke an die österreichische Billardunion für den netten Auftrag und gratulation an Albin Ouschan für den Sieg. In der ORF TV Thek könnt ihr euch noch eine Zeit lang das Turnier ansehen: https://tvthek.orf.at/profile/Billard-Top-of-Austria-9-Ball-Challenge/13888064/Billard-Top-of-Austria-9-Ball-Challenge/14053542

Es war auch spannend in Zeiten von Corona solche Aufnahmen zu machen. Hier ein paar Fotos für euch vom Turnier:

Long long time ago, I shot I pool billiards tournament. But sometimes I still do this kind of photography. This time I photographed in the “ORF Zentrum” (Austrian Television) the Top of Austria 9-Ball Challenge. To be as silent as possible, I got a Sony Alpha A9 II with a 70-200 and a 100-400mm lens. A great work horse with an amazing autofocus. Maximilian Lechner, Jasmin and Albin Ouschan were playing against each other in this tournament. Mario had to stay at home because of an health issue. I enjoyed it a lot to be part of this again. Thanks to the Austrian Billardunion for hiring me and congratulations to Albin Ouschan for winning the tournament. You still can watch the tournament online for a while here: https://tvthek.orf.at/profile/Billard-Top-of-Austria-9-Ball-Challenge/13888064/Billard-Top-of-Austria-9-Ball-Challenge/14053542

It was interesting to shoot a pool tournament during the covid19 pandemic. To get a better Idea about what I am talking about, check the gallery.
