The MIES Project

The MIES Project started in 2012 by chance, when my camera and me passed by the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin on a sunny afternoon after a thunderstorm.

I was fascinated by the interplay between the construction of the building and the light. It was like a dance inviting me directly for photography. This spirit remained constantly during the next years. I followed the building until it was closed for restoration at the beginning of 2015.

 In March 2015 I visited for the first time the Barcelona Pavillon. I returned in June, November and March 2016.

In October 2016 I visited the Seagram Building in New York. In 2017 I came for the first time to the Villa Tugendhat in the Czech Republic. My last station was in October 2017 and May 2018 Chicago... The fascination remains...

 

A security man working at the Seagram Building in New York said a sentence which might be an example

for many others I asked: `To work here rises up my mind every day.`

 

The photos shown here are part of the project. Please feel invited to contact me to see more.
