I had the great pleasure of photographing the new Porsche 911 (992) Targa 4S on the island of Sylt for a freelance project. Incomparable light, deep Nordeee clouds provide a great ambience for this design icon.
We know the legend of Icarus, whose father Daedalus built wings of feathers and wax for himself and his son to escape from the captivity of Minos on Crete. The son Icarus became overconfident, the wax melted and he fell into the sea. Despite his father’s warnings.
Again, the parallels: Despite warnings and admonitions, we spiral into ever higher and warmer and warmer climes, and the crash is not far away. Okay, maybe that’s a bit drastic and striking.
Here are photographed specimens of animals, most of whose species are extinct. For this series Dr. Martin Päckert, the head of the ornithology section of the Senckenberg Naturhistorische Sammlungen Dresden, he supported me very dedicated in my work.
In painting, the “foolish” or “overconfident” person is often depicted as Icarus.
I had the wonderful opportunity to bring together the two extremes of the Northern Polar Region in Levi, Finland and the Arabian Desert in Liwa, United Arab Emirates with the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo. These are the results.
While Los Angeles based filmmaker and Emmy award winner Nicholas Schrunk and arguably the world’s best FPV drone pilot Johnny Schaer (JohnnyFPV) shot the now released film (Times Square Billboard, Manhattan among others), I first photographed the Taycan in the polar region, then placed it exactly the same, same perspective, camera angle, etc. in the desert and applied my “multivision mojo”.
