In 1996 Bert started to make a series of photographs that were made in houses that still have the ‘old and antique available daylight’. This is a series of photographs about a certain atmosphere that Bert knew from his childhood. The work is made in Holland, France, Portugal, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Italy, Great Britain and Japan and will find its continuation around the world. Here Bert uses available light to photograph people in their kitchen, livingroom or bedroom. It is a search for a way of living that has been around for centuries and that is disappearing from society fast, due to architectual changes but also because of new regulations in the EU and other parts of the world.
The light that is being used is the same that was used by the great Dutch masters like Vermeer and Pieter de Hoogh in their paintings and the photographs of Bert have been related to the works these painters ever since.
This series was the international break-through for Bert and his first show in New York was in september 2000.
In the spring of 2007 a book about the project will be published by Aperture in New York. The book will accompany the first exhibition at Huis Marseille in Amsterdam.

LFO is an English techno act on the Warp Records label. LFO were pioneers of the bass-heavy techno music of the late 1980s to mid-1990s. Originally, the group was comprised of Gez Varley and Mark Bell. LFO is now Bell alone.
The group's name is derived from the abbreviation for the term low-frequency oscillation, a synthesis technique widely used in electronic music.

Varley and Bell met while studying at Leeds and gave their first track, the eponymous "LFO", to Nightmares on Wax. The popularity of the demo in clubs led to the track being released by the Sheffield-based Warp Records in 1990, and it was a Top 20 hit in the U.K., reaching number 12 in the singles charts.

Their follow-up single, "We Are Back", was released in the summer of 1991.
DJ Martin (Martin Williams) is credited as a cowriter and coproducer of the track "LFO" but was not a member of the group.

Mario Testino

Mario Testino
Photographer
born 1954 in Peru


website:www.mariotestino.com




Testino believes that art and business can be easy bedfellows. Now considered an iconic figure in fashion photography, his pictures have produced some of the defining images of an era, and have adorned the walls of art galleries. Born in Lima, Peru in 1954, Testino attended an American Catholic school in his native country. His father was in the oil business and used his teenage son's English language skills to his advantage by taking him along to translate on business trips to New York. It was in New York that Testino's passion for fashion first began, often shocking Peruvians back home with the latest hippy styles he would pick up in the Big Apple.

Testino credits his father for steering him towards photography, encouraging his son at a young age to choose a career he would enjoy. Before settling on photography, he attended five different universities, in Peru, the United States and England. With little talent for drawing or design, Testino found he had skills in photography, which enabled him to pursue his interest in fashion.

He moved to London in his early 20's, first to study, then working as an assistant for theatre photographer John Vickers until he died. Work was hard to come by and so Testino worked as a waiter, eventually taking photos of his colleagues at the restaurant, who happened to be aspiring models, in his spare time. In the late 1970's, with no money, he called on his bank to give him a loan to buy lights.

MARIO TESTINO PORTRAITS Record number of visitors flocked to Edinburgh's Dean Gallery in summer 2003 to see the work of world famous photographer Mario Testino. In addition to the exhibition graphics, flyers, postcards and a full colour gallery guide, we coordinated graphics for promotional and marketing purposes, producing a 48 sheet ad campaign and bus side advertising.

Lost in Translation

Lost in Translation
Movie
2003

website: www.lost-in-translation.com

Directed:Sofia Coppola
Produced: Ross Katz / Sofia Coppola
Written: Sofia Coppola

Starring:
Bill Murray
Scarlett Johansson



Lost in Translation is a 2003 comedy-drama film. It centers on Bob Harris (Bill Murray), an American action movie star on the downward slope of his career, who has come to Tokyo, Japan to film a Suntory whisky commercial. He meets Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), a recent Yale philosophy graduate who is married to a celebrity photographer, and as yet unfocused in terms of her future. Bob and Charlotte share an unconsummated romance while briefly exploring the cultural life of Tokyo but primarily feeling alienated and uncertain about the direction of their lives.

d0079151_20463251.jpgSuperficially, Lost in Translation is a movie about culture shock, but the experience of Westerners in Tokyo is a metaphor for more existential themes of alienation, loneliness, and the desire for companionship. The film explores these themes against the background of the modern Japanese cityscape. The film is rated R in the United States, 15 in the United Kingdom, PG in Australia and PG in Canada. It was the second feature film written and directed by Sofia Coppola, after The Virgin Suicides. It was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Bill Murray, and Best Director for Sofia Coppola. Coppola won Best Original Screenplay.

Paspel School

d0079151_1162071.jpg
Paspel School
Secondary School
1996-1998 Switzerland

Sutcanova 10,7417
Paspels, Switzerland

Architect: Valerio Olgiati

d0079151_130492.jpg
Paspels school is a reinforced concrete monolith. The architect did not use right angles for the outside, so although at first glance the exterior geometry seems simple, closer study reveals a chain-like reaction of slight distortions that shroud the building in an air of strangeness. Inside, however each classroom on the first and second floors has two right-angled sides that make up the walls of cruciform access corridors. In sum, the school can be interpreted as an exercise in the phenomenology of perception.
