With a black void of a Shanghai film studio as a canvas, BRANSCH photographer Michael Haegele collaborated with chinese setbuilders, who used materials available on set to transform discarded worlds into new ones. The ethos of "build it, shoot it, and destroy it again" is manifested as the men stand proudly before the raw state of their craftmanship. We, the viewers, are left to imagine what the cardboard box suspended on the wall will eventually become when the final touches are made.
BMW commissioned BRANSCH artist Martin Klimas to translate his Sonic Sculpture images into video. Reflecting the signature exhaust notes of BMW’s line of motorcycles, these high-speed videos show how the engines translate into a visual medium.
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.
