if you shoot street and want to go to london for free, check this out:


now to the actual blog. It’s the first entry that i wrote in just a day.. so it might be quite straight forward.. anyway it was fun writing this one. I missed having fun writing an entry.. the last ones have been a pain in the ass (work wise).. now lean back, get some snack and start stalking!

  1. great post as usual. that photo of the old men that died kind of creep me out. poor men ..

  5. Great post Sev. Really sad no one else noticed that man on the bench. That’s great you stopped and called the police. Have fun in LA man. I’ll try and make way out there if I can.

  8. http://severinkoller.at/blog/wp-content/gallery/2011_3/thumbs/thumbs_Img28014s.jpg I respect you for exposing this picture!

    I once found an old guy on the side of the road with blood on his head while I was out & about at work. He was conscious but not in the best of states. I called him an ambulance but the ambulance woman said he had to say if he wanted one (if he is conscious). I asked, he refused and that was that.

  9. Great entry!

    By the way about the weird Asian car brand ‘mistuyoshi’ which i never heard of, even though im from Asia, I’m guessing you meant Mitsubishi, however i’m pretty sure it says ‘toYOta’.

  12. Meine Herren, was Du so alles erlebst. Das mit dem Toten auf der Bank nahe der U-Bahnstation hat mich berührt, ich werde in Zukunft mehr auf sowas selbst achten. Wie immer starke Bilder dabei, ganz oft in klasse Schwarzweiss-Tonwerten. Danke fürs posten und schöne Grüße nach Wien, Carsten

  14. The image of the man by the bike, very powerful. I wonder how many people walked by him, without noticing.

  15. Been waiting for a new entry a couple of days now.. It was a treat this morning to browse it, great work again, though a bit gloomy – but I don’t think it your fault, just the time of the year…
    PS: The last shot somehow made my day..

  26. Dear Photogapher,

    was ist das Leben im Dunkel wieder sehr schönn auf Pellicule gebrännt.

    Really made me stay gasping for air when the poor frozen man came on the screen.

    Spass machen is ein Ding, Leben daraussen ist schwerr wann du nur eine Jacke und eine Flasche besitzt.

    Keep up the good work.


    PS I’m not an italian…

  27. Man Sev, your photos are pretty damn inspirational. They really are the one thing forcing me to think about getting a rangefinder and ditching my current gear.

    I wish I lived closer to the city so that I could do more street shooting, but until then I’ll just get my fix here.

    They really are awesome, looking forward to seeing what you produce at your workshop with Weeks.

  32. Die wenigsten Leute trauen sich stehen zu bleiben und anzupacken.

    Wieder Mal ein Haufen schöner Fotos. Danke fürs teilen. :)

  34. What on earth would you be doing in Chemnitz?! It’s my hometown, so that’s a reason to go there for me, but I really couldn’t think of any other reason. I tend to avoid it if I can. Not too bad for bleak street shots though. Btw, I love your work. Always an inspiration! L
