After all, who likes to go home alone in the evening? A simple idea was enough to spark the creation of a spread with Holger Wild’s typical narrative style. For which Holger skillfully motivated models Malalaika Gierke and Blake Kalawart to take a small spin for the portfolio following an advertising shoot. “Just because it’s fun,” as the photographer ensures us.
In post production, the spread was finalized in the end by ZERONE from Hamburg with a hip 80s film look. “Thank you all for the cool extra ride!”

“We usually retouch photos to remove everyday objects because we find them disturbing. We erase their traces and make them invisible as if they had never even been there.
What happens though if we don’t completely delete their traces, but instead only obscure them and leave them in the photograph as an intentional element? Let the everyday remain present in the photo playfully with humor, without striving for perfection which eliminates everything, but accept the beauty of reality in its imperfection, and by doing so, amplify the artistic message of the image. Precisely not through artificialization but through the acceptance of reality.
A simple electrical socket has no aesthetic value to us. Which is why it is the first to fall prey to the digital eraser. We allow it to remain in the image, but due to lack of light, by blending in with the colors of the background, or by partially covering it, it becomes less visible. In this way, I indicate its special function in the image.” photographer Anne DEPPE c/o SOLAR UND FOTOGRAFEN tells us about her personal work.

RECOM presents us her FULL CGI project ‘Hypnotic Journey’ with Alessandra KILA c/o EMEIS DEUBEL, which creatively stages one piece of chanel jewelry in each video.
“Through the mechanical and perpetual movements of diamonds, malachite, tourmaline and pearls, the viewer is taken from a rational state of mind to a trance-like hallucination where both image and colors react to the altered state of mind. Jewels are real, but they are also a subconscious reality that exists as a state of desire in our mind,” says Alessandra Kila.
RECOM : “Follow Alessandra Kila into a world of hypnotic machines with enthralling perpetual movement. Working closely with our London studio, a triptych of FULL CGI videos evolved, each featuring a piece of Chanel jewelry functioning like an entrancing device: a necklace oscillates like a pendulum, a ring repeats the pattern of a spinning machine, and a bracelet echoes the circular movements of a gyroscope.”
