Review of Japan-Book
A review of the book 'Japan-Fleeting Encounters' in the F.A.Z. from 29th May
"Quadratisch und auf mattem Papier ist dies ein ungewöhnlicher Bildband, der ganz kontemplativ sein und zur Versenkung einladen will. Womöglich ist das dann doch nur ein Japan-Klischee. Bloß ist es so gut gelungen, dass man das Gefühl mitnimmt, sich wie zu Hause zu fühlen in den gezeigten Szenen. Der perfekte Reiseführer – ohne ein Wort."

Back from Eritrea
Just back from Eritrea. Photos will be ready soon.
Found this interesting blog by Tanja R. Müller: Media reporting from the global fringes – observations from Eritrea and beyond. The blog offers some thoughts on the recent media reporting that has been done by some of those journalists who didn't and some who did actually visit Eritrea.
MEMENTO MORAVIAE – a joined project by Czech poet Radek Malý and myself - presented via a webpage. Through a combined visual and lyrical approach, the project reflects on past history and traces its legacies in contemporary Moravia, Czech Republic.

Merkel via iPhone
The German chancellor Angela Merkel seems to have connected with the popular mood once again when she took the lead in welcoming refugees to Germany, here announced at the Bundespressekonferenz in Berlin. Photos taken via iPhone here.
But only a few days later, the welcome became more qualified as temporary border controls were introduced - does this represent a wider change in policy towards refugees?
Walter Benjamin's last journey
The Chemin de Walter Benjamin is the path German-Jewish philosopher Walter Benjamin took from Banyuls-sur-Mer in France across the Pyrenees to Portbou in Spain in September 1940 to escape persecution by the Nazis.
After seven exhausting years of exile in different parts of Europe, when the local authorities in Spain threateded to sent him back, Benjamin committed suicide in Portbou. The end of Benjamin's final journey is today remembered with the 'Passages' Memorial - next to the municipal cemetery in Portbou where he was buried.
al-Sisi visiting Berlin
Quite unprecedented scenes took place in Berlin yesterday. What a relief to live in a society where free press regulations are quite good. Nothing to compare to the ‘patriotic’ claqueur journalists and jubilant followers of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
Some of my photos can bee seen in this interesting blog by Dr. Tanja R. Müller.
