“A chair is a very difficult object. A skyscraper is almost easier. That is why Chippendale is famous.”
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Overwhelmed and speechless… …that was how we felt when Andrea and me sneaked through the gorges of the Moscow City skyscrapers on that sunny September day. So many impressions. So many views to capture.
Please see als well Andrea impressions on JETAMELE of our Moscow City double feature.

drei Dinge über mich:
EINS: Ich liebe es, wenn ich alleine Auto fahre, die Kurvengeräusche die Reifen machen (wenn man rasant in eine Kurve biegt) nachzumachen… …halt so IIEEIIEEEKKK (wie man das in Comics kennt)… ..mach ich aber nur wenn ich alleine fahre… …andernfalls befürchte ich, ich werde sonst nur noch ALLEINE fahren.. ..oder eingewiesen zu werden… …hhmm, bleibt besser unter uns!
“I’m 48 years old, not a kid anymore by any definition, but here is a universal truth that every adult at some point will realize: We are all always 17 years old, waiting for our lives to begin.”
“So, the combination of looking at lots of different people and how they react to each other and how they relate to each other and waiting for that inspiration is the thing that allows me to keep writing.”
Novodevichy Cemetery is the most famous cemetery in Moscow. It lies next to the southern wall of the 16th-century Novodevichy Convent, which is the city’s third most popular tourist site. The remains of many famous Russians buried in other abbeys, such as Mikhail Bulgakov, Boris Jelzin, Vladimir Mayakovski, Nicolai Gogol or Anton Chechov.
On 23rd of September we celebrated the grand opening of my photo exhibition HORIZONS in Tver / Russia. Supported by Andrea (JETAMELE) we try to treat 12 different kinds of categories of horizons that we encounter in our daily life like e.g. geographic, social, cultural, technical, religious, professional or emotional horizons and more.
18 of the 36 images were printed on 6mm aryl glass with the sizes of 60×40, 80×60, 120×80 and 180×120. The 17 print on photo paper with a 8cm passe-partout and a simple back frame were produced with he sizes of 80×60 and 120×34. One print appeared on canvas (120×40) in b/w.
The whole project was a great pleasure full of experience, fun and exchange with other people. It was great to share all that together with Andrea.
Thank you ANTHROPOLOGY and all the other helping hands for the great job you did.
My beloved Victoria… …that was priceless!!! Thank you for everything !!!
H O R I Z O N S…. …recognize, approach, exceed
“Everyone who crosses a horizon makes the world a bit bigger for us … … more diverse, more hopeful, more open … … and the longing grows within us to cross horizons as well!”

Amnon Nissun the Matkot King. Since he was six, the now 73 y.o. Amnon use to play matkot (eng.: racquets) every day at the beach or at the matkot pitches of Tel Aviv. It’s his passion… …and he is good, really good. He is the champ.
Even more it was a great pleasure to visit him in the Neve Tzedek district of Tel Aviv to enjoy all this memorabilia of his life. More then 300 racquets, cups, newspaper clippings, lots of music and presents from friends all over the world.
Thank you Amnon for your great hospitality and your contagious good mood. It was a pleasure. All the best for you.
