Find: Jane Moseley

Jane Moseley obviously has a passion for candles – and she must have tons of those things, that lighten up our dark winter evenings, at home. Because her sculptures mainly consists of wax.

And they look kind of creepy – or how do you like the idea of being covered in cold wax entirely? Right. But in a museum her sculptures surely develop their own special charme. However, we wouldn’t like meeting them at night…

We present: Pieces of Berlin

What is it that makes the special charme of Berlin, drawing thousands and thousands tourist to the city every year? Photographer Florian Reischauer – a born Austrian – uses every free minute to find the attitude towards life: “Everything is possible, nothing must!”. His finds are shown on his website “Pieces of Berlin“.

He does not only snap dilapidated ruins and rank courtyards, classic sights or colourful graffitis, but especially the inhabitants of Berlin: Students, artists, musicians, pensioners or road sweepers love to be available for a portrait and a quick chat. Thus the wild mixture of people bustling around the city is captured on photographic paper in a lovely way.
