In Summer, Torsten KLINKOW received the offer to photograph, in some cases, very rare sports cars from the PORSCHE MUSEUM for KEKO and PORSCHE CLASSIC 15. Created together with Art Director David Beitler were multifaceted lifestyle motifs in thrilling locations, which were researched and scouted in a team effort by Angelika Synek, Sven Laabs and Torsten Klinkow.
“The brief was to present the cars in authentic surroundings with strong character models. What made it so challenging though was coordinating fifteen vehicles, locations and fourteen models. A big thank you for which goes to Sven Laabs, who was responsible for production, as well as to Porsche Classic.”

The photographer and director got celebrity support on board for his portrait of the BMW128 TI : parkour* athlete Jason Paul. Jason was born in Frankfurt and is now sponsored by Red Bull and GoPro.

About – Jason Paul. I work as a professional athlete and influencer for select brands. I document my life on my YouTube channel. They’re called vlogs and are like a video diary. I occasionally give talks about my journey as an athlete, marketing yourself and making the most of social media. I run the brand FARANG with my friends. We do video productions and cut and sew clothing designs. It’s the most fun work I’ve ever done. I’m learning to speak Japanese and how to be strong and healthy long long long term … and I love ice cream.
At fourteen, I was a video game nerd living in Frankfurt, Germany, and stumbled across a parkour video online. I thought “Hold my keyboard, I can do this,” and my life was never the same.
