EVENTS 'With Open Eyes' – ARTE and Gillian LAUB c/o LGA MANAGEMENT analyze the iconic photo of the family of American basketball player LeBron Raymone James Sr., photographed for VANITY FAIR US – and meet LGA MGMT at UPDATE-23-BERLIN

24.01.2023 • The ARTE headline : “A photo of a family dinner – sounds like not such a big thing? Well, I guess that depends on the family! LeBron James, American Basketball superstar, billionaire and the voice of the Black Lives Matter movement, opened the doors to his estate in Los Angeles for a photographer.

When US magazine Vanity Fair presented a photo of the James family at dinner on 13 September, 2022, Twitter and other media channels were buzzing with excitement. The story about an athlete from a humble background who rose to become the king of basketball coins the old cliché of the American Dream and celebrates African-American pop culture.”

Together with photographer Gillian LAUB c/o LGA MANAGEMENT and the specialist for American civilization, Pierre Cras, ‘With Open Eyes’ analyzed the photo – and you can open the corresponding article using the link below.

ARTE is a public TV broadcaster headquartered in Straßburg, France. It is operated as part of a French-German cooperation by the two members Arte Germany in Baden-Baden and Arte France in Issy-les-Moulineaux near Paris.

14.01.2023 • ‘Homininae Helvetica’ was created on commission of Studio Thom Pfister and Burgerliche Ersparniskasse (BEK) for the 700th anniversary of the guild society ‘zum Affen’. The elaborate photo montage unites the themes of Bern, the stonemason handicraft and monkeys. Idea, concept, photography, and retouching/compositing all came from TERENCE DU FRESNE.

The guild society ‘zum Affen’ is one of the thirteen ancient craftsman societies and guilds (guild society of stonemasons and engravers) in the city of Bern and a corporation under public law guaranteed by the constitution of the canton of Bern.
