Like many great ideas do,
Kerstin zu Pan's series SELFSERVICE
started out as an elaborated joke:
initially pointed at some Bavarian friends,
she portrayed herself dressed as the cliché Oktoberfest girl.
The results not only met her penchant for nonsense humor
but also nudged her to start a lifelong project:
the ultimate travel diary.
The classical "Dirndl"- dress soon became her most important companion
wherever she traveles by profession - or by wanderlust.
Being used to work behind the camera,
zu Pan became her own model
– using inspiring sceneries around the globe
for her witty self-stagings.
Kerstin zu Pan has stated that SELFSERVICE
will continue indefinitely
– till either the dress or herself fall apart.
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.
