Nico Baumgarten | How the other half lives

The talented Nico Baumgarten is currently running a crowdfunding-campaign to cover a part of the production costs for his new book. Until the 9th of March you can support the project on indiegogo!
How the other half lives” will be self-published in an edition of 1.000 and will be released in April 2015.

There are beautiful rewards, such as some of Nico’s previously self-published, hand-bound books (of which only few copies remain), postcards & stickers, screen-printed Anarchist-cat T-shirts – and of course, signed copies of the new book itself!

We already got a chance to have a look at the dummy, and we are very fond of this book.
Check it out and please consider supporting this project! Continue Reading →

With my eyes closed I see an ocean of weightless light rays –
dancing, floating…

I’m here.

For several years I climbed numerous rooftops to make pictures, over and over again. For a long time I didn’t know exactly why; I simply felt attached to these strange, unknown and obscure places. I explored my city from a different angle and I photographed architectural situations up there being fascinated by the vastness and expanse as well as its limitation by moments of blocked sights. Eventually I realized that I had compiled a personal map – an imaginary walk in another dimension.
