MARCUS PHILIPP SAUER photographs for the MERCEDES BENZ G-CLASS MANUFAKTUR in the mountains of Tyrol (agency: Banauten)

For MERCEDES BENZ and the agency Banauten, MARCUS PHILIPP SAUER and his team were on the road in the mountains of Tyrol where he had the pleasure of demonstrating what the G Class is capable of – in snow and rain, it left everyone and everything behind. The G MANUFAKTUR is an exclusive individualization program of Mercedes-Benz developed solely for the icons among all-terrain vehicles.

With model Christina Zimmermann, it was off to the award-winning Tyrol Tower House chalet built by Grünecker Reichelt + Holzrausch, among other places. The house is based on regional design, integrating characteristic features which it reinterprets.

Post production of the motifs was taken care of by GoSee Member TREY in Hamburg.

THE RAZOR HOUSE, Iron Man inspiration and West Coast home of Alicia Keys and Kasseem Dean, aka Swizz Beat – photographed by MARCUS PHILIPP SAUER

Following a production in the vicinity of San Diego, MARCUS PHILIPP SAUER stopped by the Razor House, a unique villa made of massive concrete and glass, constructed in 2007 on the sheer cliffs of La Jolla, California, a chic suburb with an incredible view of the Pacific.

“This architectural masterpiece, constructed over a period of five years, is an unparalleled trophy object which was designed by Wallace E. Cunningham, one of the 100 best designers of Architectural Digest. Set behind gates and constructed from white polished concrete and floor-to-ceiling glass, this magnum opus suspends the boundaries of ordinary living and commands amazing uninterrupted views of the ocean, open sky and natural landscape.” photographer Marcus Philipp Sauer tells us.

Resting high above Torrey Pines State Reserve, this 11,000-square-foot piece de resistance houses four bedrooms and six baths, a two-level guest house affording the same impressive view, an underground garage for more than six vehicles and private access to Black’s Beach. Impeccable design, unrivaled quality and a paramount location make this property a true piece of art.

Singer-Songwriter Alicia Keys and her husband, music producer Kasseem Dean – aka Swizz Beatz – payed around 20.8 million US dollars in 2020 for the spectacular object, which is said to have served as the inspiration for Tony Stark’s Razor Point Malibu lair from the Iron Man film.

La Jolla, one of the most picturesque towns on California’s Pacific coast, has been the home of Theodore ‘Dr. Seuss’ Geisel, actor Gregory Peck, Jonas Salk, who developed the Polio vaccine, astronaut Sally Ride, NFL pioneer Paul Brown and actress Raquel Welch.

Three old friends, a small cat and their enchanted house in Tuscany… documented photographically by MARCUS PHILIPP SAUER

This is the story of three old friends, a small cat and their house in Tuscany, captured in beautiful meditative photos by MARCUS PHILIPP SAUER. These friends have dedicated their lives to mindfulness and simplicity. Consumption is not the key to happiness.

Fueled by social media, we are currently raising a generation of narcissistic show-offs … People with a narcissistic personality are characterized by an inflated self-image. They have an exaggerated feeling of self-importance and are convinced of their uniqueness. Their need for attention and admiration is excessive accordingly.

We read on WIKIPEDIA  : “The Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is marked by a lack of empathy for the feelings of others, overestimation of personal abilities and an increased desire for recognition. A typical symptom of those suffering from the disorder is that they are obsessed with impressing others and seeking admiration for themselves, but have only little interpersonal empathy and are unable to fully reciprocate emotional warmth.”

Practicing mindfulness, however, helps us to learn how to live in the here and now again. It is about consciously perceiving the moment. It is the attempt to simply be aware of, observe and be present in our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment – in a nonjudgemental manner. The concept of mindfulness has its roots in Buddhism, in which meditation plays a major role. Mindfulness is a mental stance that is the foundation of all forms of meditation.

“If we don’t drastically change our way of thinking, our greed will be our downfall.” Marcus Philipp Sauer, who captured the beautiful reportage, concludes.

Mindfulness can also mean looking at everyday things from a different perspective and breaking out of routines: by taking a different approach than usual, listening to music you never would otherwise, eating with the left hand instead of the right, consciously soaking in artwork without judgement…
