BRANSCH photographer Lee Towndrow has been busy at work. Some of his most recent work includes cover artwork for the artist Doug Paisley, for his album "Constant Companion." In the spirit of the title, Lee collaborated with Heather Goodchild, who created a felt replica of the artist's face, for a surreal result. In addition, he reimagined Edouard Manet's painting "Le Dejuner sur l'herbe" for the artist collective The MFA, consisting of Sheila Heti, Margaux Williamson, Ryan Kamstra, and Sholem Krishtalka. Treating the iconic painting with a photographic sensibility, Lee imbued the painting with a depth and dynamism only photography can provide.
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.
