So I got myself a new camera, called Konica Minolta Hexar AF (in black). This entry is mainly shot with it.

Nothing genius. I hope you have some fun though. Try not to start scrolling like a mofo.. if you do, let me know. Thanks!

  1. lovely fucking photos, man.

    let’s go back to nyc … like next week!

    i spit my gum at the royal flush comment!

    Bei dem Keller Spruch musste ich auch schmunzeln ;)

  3. Finally! Nice post..I’ve always enjoyed seeing NY photos, so much variety to the people there. Gotta visit it again someday.

  4. Wow, mal wieder total beeindruckende Aufnahmen. Bin immer total fasziniert von der Schärfe deiner Bilder… Darf ich mal was technisches fragen? Wie bekommst du es hin, auch bei schwierigen Lichtverhältnissen so perfekt zu belichten? Ist das die Erfahrung? Da ich auch ein wenig analog fotografiere und weiß, wie schwer ich mich vor allem ganz am Anfang getan hab, bin ich sehr beeindruckt von deinen Fotos, was die Technik anbelangt. Die Motive sind sowieso wie immer einfach schön, könnte den ganzen Tag scrollen.

    Grüße aus Franken,

  7. Excellent work; I lingered over every image. My favorite is the guy with the cigar; a masterpiece. You have a great feel for my home town. –Beau.

  8. Great blog entry! I miss NYC when looking at your frames :) Loved the banana eating progression.

    So I gather you liked using the Hexar… I saw one for sale here, in good condition for about $350, you think it’s a good price? I’ve been saving for a M6 but without a lens, the Hexar seems like a good compromise for a compact yet more than decent camera.

  9. dude – really cool seeing your stuff. awesome exposures and what a great performance from that little camera, as well!

    until next time,

  10. Very nice post! I Loved the portraits! Waiting for the next one. All the best!

  11. That “connecting flights in Paris are a PITA” and the following shots in the airport/airplane are some of the best I’ve seen here on your blog. Congratulations.

    Looking forward to the next post. When I see a post of yours in my feedreader, I always pour myself a nice coffee and take some time to really breathe in those everyday captures. So nice.

  12. Always a pleasure to go through your photos, loved some of the comments, nyc is definitely one of the best places to shoot. Thought I recognized Justin Stailey on one of the subway pictures

  13. Amazing shoots, I’m impressed!
    Your photos are a lot of inspiration for me, thank you!

  14. beautiful, just beautiful sev.
    “nothing genius”? Leave that up to everyone else.

  15. I want to see these on print – blown up and on the walls of a gallery somewhere, someday.

  16. You always make me laugh man!
    Loved the smiling lady on the foreground of the dildo limo shot! Oh, and the banana!

  20. Great selection as usual. And you know Jojo Mayer? That’s amazing. He’s awesome, such a master in his field!

    Comment by Alick — January 6, 2012 @ 11:16 am
  21. great pics. like them all and they work together in a excelent way, so urban, so NYC, so human… have to highlight the one with the baby “should sell this as a camera advert” and the ones at the subway, so quotidian. congrats. have a nice 2012 and good photos! dg

    Comment by dg — January 6, 2012 @ 11:31 am
  22. Amazing blog – really great work.

    I need to try out one of these Hexar AF’s….and I need to try to forget how much cheaper it is than the Summicron 35 I just got!

    Comment by Joel — January 6, 2012 @ 12:58 pm
  23. i prefer your version over the one of Chris. Mostly because of the guy in the background. The black homeless and the white buisiness man.

    And you have no idea how long i waited for this blog entry!

    Comment by Niklas — January 6, 2012 @ 2:38 pm
  24. Wow great pictures. In 2-3 days I look at the entry again – there’s always something new to discover.

    Comment by Henning — January 6, 2012 @ 4:50 pm
  25. Fantastic captures! The Amstetten joke was a little harsh though… ;)
    keep it up Sev! I really admire your work!

    Comment by Thomas — January 7, 2012 @ 1:09 am
  26. You are a gifted photographer. In every pic, you captured a feeling.

    Thank you.

  28. No mofo-scrolling at all.
    Wonderful post. Everything has already been said..

    And hey, Jojo Mayer is the shit!

    Comment by David — January 8, 2012 @ 2:51 pm
  29. Bloody hell, how I waited for this post. Your work is stunning, and I love the funny moments/comments and how you tell a story with your posts. Someone said that he would always make a nice coffee and relax while enjoying your posts, and it’s really the best way to do it!

    Comment by Tatiana — January 8, 2012 @ 3:17 pm
  30. I enjoy every single post of yours, Sev :) It’s a pleasure to follow your blog :)

    Danke fürs Zeigen!

    Comment by Johannes — January 9, 2012 @ 10:16 am
  32. Whenever I see that you’ve made an update, I always go make a cup of coffee and slowly scroll through the post while sipping it down. Always a treat.

    Comment by Niclas Fasth — January 9, 2012 @ 3:19 pm
  33. Severin, i’m scanning 5 rolls of 135 B&W film right now. Developed by my ownself. It’s one of the reasons I an outmost respect for your blog as those wonderful photo’s are a work of craftmanship, I assume slowly generated and with time consuming digitalising as a PITA in the end of the workflow. Respect my man!

    Keep strong,

    best regards,


    Comment by Reiner — January 12, 2012 @ 8:24 pm
  34. seeehr geniale Fotos – vielen vielen Dank fürs online stellen.

  35. PS ‘ on the rooftop ‘ , you’re best EVER ( so far…)

  36. I live in Costa Rica, she must be having fun, you should come down here and try some street shooting, would love to see some good stuff of my country

    Comment by dambro — January 13, 2012 @ 6:46 am
  37. It’s always a treat to check out a new entry of your blog. Let’s hope the you will update it more frequently than you did last year. No worries though, I follow you on tumblr too.
    Next please bring SiS too Japan (Fukuoka would be the best)!

  38. Richtig tolle Bilder. Machen einfach Spass. Freue mich auf die nächsten ;) VG, Meo.

  39. You’ve moved out from Vienna?

    I agree with the cofee comments. Although I’m at work…

    Comment by Pekka — January 17, 2012 @ 9:37 am
  40. Or perhaps I’m just overinterpreting “for me it was bye bye Wien… ” ;)

    Comment by Pekka — January 17, 2012 @ 9:39 am
  41. Amazing photos man. I sold my Hexar AF to buy a lens for my M6 but I regret it often. Your photos are outstanding.
    What is your film/developer combination?


    Comment by Sam — January 17, 2012 @ 8:25 pm
  42. I could buy the book. :)
    Seriously : this is an incredibly good piece of photography.

    Comment by Nicolas — January 18, 2012 @ 12:57 am
  43. I hope you going to do a blog entry with your images from Africa sometime soon! (Saw some on tumbler – would love to see more!).

    Comment by Joel — January 18, 2012 @ 11:59 pm
  44. This shot is tremendous:


    That look… Wonderful.

  45. Hallo Severin,

    das sind wirklich irre Stereoaufnahmen!!! Gefallen mir verdammt gut und nicht nur wegen der interessanten Werkzeuge, die Du dabei nutzen konntest :-).

    Viele Grüße, Sebastian

  46. Good day!,, your pictures inspire us more to go out and keep on shootin,,regardless the place and culture where we are now. thanx!!

  47. Wow! How did you get to know Jojo? He’s a hell of a drummer, those photos turned out great! You know, every time I go through one of your posts with all these great pictures makes me just want to grab my camera and go out and shoot, even if it’s 11pm on monday!

    Comment by Aldo — January 24, 2012 @ 6:12 am
  48. I’m noticing a lot more contrast in these images. Did you change something in your developing, film choice, scanning method or post processing? because it certainly looks great

    Comment by Steve — January 27, 2012 @ 8:43 am
  49. Thanks for the inspiration. Your photos are great!

  52. I always enjoy the stories with each photo! I’m not much of a photographer but I love the street photos and b/w film! -jossi

  53. Love the photos, I cant believe you know Jojo!

    Comment by sergey — April 24, 2012 @ 10:56 pm
  54. Amazing photos! I just bought a used Hexar AF off the net and reading this set of work just further reassures that I’ve made a right choice!

    Questions: in these nice photos that you took, which exposure mode did you mostly use, P, A or M?

    Thank you in advance and look forward to hearing your answer.
