First off all i want to announce that there will be an exhibition of my friend Matthias Aschauer’s and my work. So if you’re interested in seeing some handmade fiber beauties you’re more than welcome to come!

Date is Wednesday, 12th May. Location FOTOK Grangasse 5, 1150 Vienna (starting at 7pm).

if you’re interested in a personal guidance on another day. mail to mail@severinkoller.com

now to the blog.

it’s been a while i’ve had the time to develope and scan films. after coming back from new york, a lot of work was ahead of me. also mood wise i was up and down and to be honest, not really motivated to take snapshots since i got back to vienna. there isn’t much inspiration left for shooting street here at the moment.

i’m suprised though how well this entry sums up the last couple of weeks, from depressing days to great ones and i’ve even skipped a lot like some commissions -  because it’s just getting too much.

so here we go.

  1. lustig, der eintrag ist teilweie wirklich so garnicht du. was aber auch was hat.

  11. du warst in Klagenfurt und sagst gar nix davon? tststs :D … nächstes Mal ruf an dann wird auf nen Kaffee gegangen! … ansonsten die gewohnte Qualität und das mit dem New York Einfluss mag teils echt stimmen .. die Bilder haben schon bisl was davon .. aber so stark ne Veränderung hab ich im ersten Moment nicht erkannt (abgesehen davon dass die Kontraste in diesem Entry teils sehr stark sind und die Belichtung in vielen Fällen echt genial gelungen ist, .. well done!)

  12. Wow. This was a dark and sad blog entry. It really was.

  13. fantastic photos, congrats. are you scanning all your images, or are you using digital cameras?

    the blog photo header actually looks like a mcdonalds banner ad…

    thanks and keep updating your blog,

  18. I was reading the entry, going through the photos one by one.. and then suddenly reached the last – and my heart jumped. I hope all is ok.

  19. You are my favorite modern photographer. If there are ones better, I don’t know about them. I went to look at HCB photographs the other day in New York, and I could only keep thinking of yours when looking at his.

  21. Hallo Severin,

    I am having a look at your pictures while being at work… I can’t wait to feel that well known “after work expression” that you mentioned several times :)
    but I’m having a pleasant break thanks to your portraits, so:

    thank you very much Severin!

    Photography is truly meaningful and important to me. I enjoy the way you combine lights, shadows, and people’s expressions, with honesty, thoughtfulness, and unpretentiousness.

    I’m looking forward to seeing more of your work,
