VOLOCITY is an autonomous electric urban air taxi. Pioneering technology with an elegant aesthetic that combines the lightness of flying with the highest safety standards, and time-saving travel with a unique flying experience. The motifs presented here on GoSee.NEWS were staged by Stuttgart-based photographer Tom Ziora – and WAGNERCHIC was responsible for creative post production. The agency was Strichpunkt Design.
The VoloCity is an all-electric aircraft with the ability to vertically take off and land. It is built by German manufacturer Volocopter and is the company’s first production model. With the VoloCity, Volocopter has built the fourth generation following the Volocopter VC200 / 2X and the first production model of its aircraft. The first confirmed use planned is the launch of an electric-powered air taxi service in Singapore within the next three years.
“Our zero-emission VoloCity air taxi is at the heart of what we’re about. It’s the first craft of its kind that meets the exacting safety standards stipulated by the EASA. Ultimately, the VoloCity fits into our overarching vision: to realize the dream of urban air mobility in an integrated ecosystem that covers the entire journey, from booking to smooth landing.” says VOLOCOPTER and continues: “The French capital Paris will become a leader in the area of urban air mobility. In an unprecedented mobility project, the city’s airports and public transportation operators have chosen Volocopter to be their eVTOL partner. Joint testing is already underway.”
Since the eVTOL aircraft has zero carbon emissions and a low noise profile, Volocopter wants to offer its service mainly in urban areas to reduce congestion and complement urban mobility. In a first phase, the VoloCity will have a pilot on board. But it is designed to operate completely autonomously as soon as the regulatory requirements for autonomous flying have been issued by the aviation authorities.

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.
