"A Difficult Man" (Der Schwierige) at Theater in der Josefstadt in Vienna

"A Difficult Man" by Hugo von Hofmannsthal (1920)
directed by Janusz Kica
premiere on 6 October 2016 at josefstadt theatre in Vienna - don't miss it!

 

"A Difficult Man" is light-hearted, comic and thought-provoking. Its central character, the Count Hans Karl Buehl, is "the difficult man," both seeking and running away from love, caught between action and inaction and forever undecided. The play questions the value of words in true expression and the nature of communication in society - the misunderstandings that ensue are a pleasure to behold.

"Monsieur Claude and his Daughters" at Kammerspiele der Josefstadt

"Monsieur Claude and his Daughters" (Monsieur Claude und seine Töchter)
A conservative French father, Claude Verneuil, with four lovely daughters, is forced to adjust to three sons-in-law of varying ethnic backgrounds: Jewish, Muslim and Chinese. Hope remains with the youngest daughter, who may yet offer them a big church wedding. A wish that comes true, except for the fact that the man she is about to marry is from… the Ivory Coast!

time collapsing - it's a book!

So happy and still jumping :D It took a year to find the perfect shape. To decide if it's going to be a box or a book. For many months I was sure it will be a box. But now... the first books arrived and I couldn't be happier!
The series time collapsing is so special to me. So important. I started working on this project in 2014 and it's still growing. Maybe this is why I always had the feeling that I have to treat these photographs with the upmost respect. I totally love the edition prints on baryta and I wanted the book be of equal value. I wanted the book to shine, to be able to stand alone and - together with the edition - to become one.
Now I have six books and the next step is finding a sponsor, crowd funding...not sure yet. But I'm aiming for an edition higher than six :D
So...keep your fingers crossed!
