On a very sunny and unusual warm weather before christmas 2015, we decided to visit the small town Staufen, 30 minutes away from Freiburg. Staufen im Breisgau is a German town in the Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald district of Baden-Württemberg. It has a population of approximately 7,600 inhabitants. It is noted in history and culture for its association with Dr Faustus who, according to legend, sold his soul to the Devil.
I continued my ongoing project about handcrafted japanese teapots in Tokoname, Aichi. On a late afternoon I went out for a walk and took some "non touristic shots" with my Leica M4p and Summicron 35mm, loaded with TX400. Many thanks to Mr. Bergs @ MeinFilmLab who greatly supported this project!
In September I traveled to Japan to continue my ongoing project about handcrafted japanese teapots in Tokoname, Aichi. I started this documentary back in 2009.
In the last few months I was fortune enough to test a few 35mm film compact cameras. They were easy to handle and fun to use but at the end I was happy to get out with my Leica M3 or M4P again. But every compact had their own signature.
