Shop • ‘Dream & Sensuality’ – personal work by JANA EDISONGA in photo and film

24.01.2022 • The spread presented here by photographer and director JANA EDISONGA is all about dreamlike sensations, about sensuality, and all the things which we sense more than we can grasp or comprehend. It is about the never-ending interplay of light and darkness, about the shadows and the sparkle that surrounds us all.

It is about light shapes, about color in movement, about layering textures. For the spread, she staged model Tyneisha, and hair & make-up artist was Astrid Scheppan. The music for the film came from Lorina Speder, and casting was in the hands of the one and only Tamara Sarischwili. Find more works by Jana Edisonga on her website.

Fashion • COSMOPOLA : Welcome to the family Monica Menez

22.01.2022 • COSMOPOLA : “When style meets story !! May we introduce : Monica Monez is now part of the Cosmopola Family !! Whether she’s working on a fashion film or an advertising photo campaign : The approach of photographer and fashion filmmaker MONICA MENEZ is unique and unconventional throughout the fashion world.

She bases all of her scenes on small stories, takes things literally, exploits metaphors, and thus subtly reveals absurd ambiguities. The resulting images are aesthetic, humorous, and not infrequently erotic. Menez takes scenes from everyday life and modifies them : She puts the familiar into strange contexts, or spices up scenarios with surreal elements. Her images are multilayered, with attention to detail, but never overloaded – every element in the picture has its purpose, always giving viewers something to discover.

It’s the combination of fashion and pointed stories that really makes fashion a star in Monica Menez’s work.”

Photographers • ‘We live and breathe rowing – since 1919’ – TERENCE DU FRESNE shoots the image film for the renowned ROWING CLUB BERN steeped in tradition

17.01.2022 • Rowing Club Bern, founded in 1919 in Bern, is a Swiss rowing association on Bern’s Lake Wohlen, a reservoir of the river Aare, which is known as one of the best waters in Switzerland for the rowing sport. Throughout the history of the club, it has been able to celebrate successes both at home and abroad.

For the new and atmospheric image film for Rowing Club Bern, the rowing teams already embarked on the shoot before dawn, while their local Lake Wohlen was still mysteriously draped in wafts of mist. A mystical atmosphere was captured, and the teams were staged in calm images and impressive light moods by director TERENCE DU FRESNE.

Photographer and director Terence du Fresne, by the way, is also a specialist for post production and has supported his clients since 1990 with his own studio at Stufenbau near Bern as well as internationally and regularly on location.
