The island's heritage has been recognized by UNESCO and here the women call the shots... If you are in France go grab a copy of this beautiful magazine! Thanks so much Marie-Pierre and Théo du Couedic for all your support and amazing work for the story!

At the end of July / beginning of August, I will be conducting the Masterclass Photography in Irsee as part of the Swabian Art Summer 2018. The setting in rural Allgäu is awesome, the embedding with the many other master classes super inspiring and the food a blast for a fair price!
I am very proud to share a project that I have been working on for the last three years: Tbilisi - Archive of Transition.
Together with my colleagues from FROH! in Cologne and CCA in Georgia, we have been collecting stories of change in the vibrant capital that will now be published in a book.

Bernd Hauser and I visited the Sami people of Northern Norway and documented their life with and from the reindeer.

For this week's DER SPIEGEL I had the pleasure to meet Prof. Weber, an anthropologist in Vienna, and his thought-provoking discovery of a mandible bone found in Israel that can be dated back much longer than previously thought mankind lived there.
Merry Christmas and happy centennial to the bacteriophages! 100 years ago, the research started and if Western research would finally allow their public use, multi-resistant bacteria could soon be a thing of the past...

The beautiful weekend magazine FR7 of the Frankfurter Rundschau published this week a long cover story of Andrea and my research on the issue of fistula in Africa! Thanks so much to the whole editorial team for the dedication and space for this important story!
Another part of our story on fistula in Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of Congo has been published on the German news site Spiegel Online! It is just one of many stories about the suffering of the women there, but hopefully giving them a voice will make a tiny difference and help to not forget the grave situation. Thank you, Andrea, for your dedication and the strong will to get the word out into the world! And thank you Holger, Heike, Anna, Charlotte and the whole SPON-team for taking the time to look through the extensive material and your belief in the need to tell the stories of these women!
If you are normally not roaming around the men's magazine section at your local kiosk, you should check out this month's issue of the German PLAYBOY.
