A child smiles into the camera, a common image from advertising, the media, and family albums. To be a child means to be carefree and happy. One rarely comes across angry, skeptical, thoughtful or deeply sad children’s faces, seemingly taboo. Yet these moments are an integral part of childhood. In these moments, children show strong emotions in a much more pure and genuine manner than adults are capable of. Alexandra's aim was to show the diversity of childrens' experiences and make the viewer aware of children as individual charcters. These children touch us by expressing feeling that all of us carriy inside, but as adults, usually keep well hidden. In this way, these portraits confront us with our own vulnerability.
For BRANSCH artist Steffen Jagenburg, it is always a magical moment when sound and motion add to the feel of his imagery. It is like giving life your own expressions.
It is a beautiful, welcome challenge to cover content in two different visual ways: still and motion. Steffen's numerous clients look for that - someone to use the same language in film and photography, combined with Steffen's great aesthetic sensibility and attitude.
BRANSCH artist Sven Schrader introduces his new showreel. It containes footage of several movie projects that he produced over the last two years. It shows his diverse work for advertising, music videos and private short films. As multifaceted with his motion as he is with his still photography, Sven's aesthetic informs both.
