ROCKENFELLER & GÖBELS : “With an uncompromisingly consistent aesthetic and lighting, Frank Schemmann portrayed professional athletes for The German Sports Aid. Schemmann’s photos interpret Timo Boll, Kristina Vogel or Pauline Schäfer, among others, in a very sensitive and personal manner.” Post: Tom Stein, hair & make-up: Eva Mittmann. GoSee : sporthilfe.de
