Since i am reading the last murakami book now, here is a series of unpublished portraits from japan.
i am breaking the rules a bit and trying to get out of my instagram comfort zone. most of you know that my street/portrait/documentary work is mostly on @alina.rudya but i guess as a travel photographer i have to show more aspects of a trip/country than just the obviously pretty sights.

again, vote for your favorite picture 1-5 in the comments.

After spending almost a week in grey berlin, i couldn't resist but post this summer picture from our trip to belle-ile in brittany, france.
i've spend some days here as a teenager, so it was really inspiring and nostalgic to come back as an adult - and finally visit the needles of port coton - the beautiful rock formations, painted by various artists, most famously by claude monet.

Looks like i will be posting more picture series from now on. which one is your favorite? choose 1-5 in the comments.

on our recent roadtrip in california, we've managed to stay in the wonderful little town of idyllwild for 3 nights. the holiday apartment we've rented was picture perfect,especially the evening light and the fact that deers and squirrels came to greet us in the morning.
so yeah, i guess a perfect entry for the #whpinspiredby
ps grumpy faces because we didn't want to leave!😂

So you know it - nothing in this picture is staged. we had some amazing camp sites during our trip to namibia last (already!) year and this one is my number one favorite, even though a bit spooky - sleeping in a tent in a secluded campsite with no other people around and wind howling above you...

Currently on the way to my favorite city in the whole world - new york, i am reminiscenting of the most memorable moments of 2018.
some places are meant to be on a real traveler's bucket list. deadvlei in namibia was one of mine.
i am hoping to cross some other dream destinations off my travel map, including new zealand, chile and the philippines in 2019. what about you? do you have any dream destinations?

Have you followed the recent claas relotius spiegel scandal? for those who know nothing - a german star journalist faked his reports from various hot spots in the world for years, winning prizes and even becoming a cnn journalist of the year! and noone ever noticed that his articles were too good to be true! until now.
made me think. i have an ma in journalism but i never pursued a career in it, because i always thought that investigating journalism was the only thing i'd do but also that it would be something seriously dangerous and with an enormous amount of luck required. as a multi-language speaker i kept noticing inconsistencies in npr-programs as well as other radio and tv stations from russia and ukraine,where a slightly different translation created a totally different story.
so can we really believe everything journalists tell us?or can we believe magazines whose fact-checkers cannot even use google properly?
and when it comes to pictures - call me a sceptic, but if the picture is too good to be true, it probably is. even steve mccurry staged and photoshopped it as we know it now.

Lost in the maze.
have you ever been in one of the arizona's slot canyons? i've visited the canyon x this time - no people, all for ourselves for an hour. how great that some places can be still seen like this.
