'We're making Germany stronger together' – is the slogan to advertize the new projects of the German Federal Ministry for Labour and Social Affairs. The photos for it were shot by CLEMENS ASCHER at the film studios in Babelsberg, Germany – with real letters from the set builders and lots of people, including Labour Minister Andrea Nahles. Production was in the hands of GoSee member HETZNER PRODUKTION.
At a shoot for South Tyrol Tourism, OSCAR VAN DE BEEK met up with famous mountaineer and author Reinhold Messner. Naturally, Oscar did not miss the opportunity and shot a portrait of the character head in addition to the two campaign motifs. The agency was Zum goldenen Hirschen, Munich, with Art Director Jaro Kovacs and Flora Hartmann in art buying.
With the Ferrari series, JOHANNES KUEHN deliberately went back to his roots: photos of exclusive sports cars in an industrial surrounding. That he had a very special model in front of his camera with the Ferrari 458 totally upped the ante on the fun side – and the quality of the photos to boot.
For SPD parliament member Andreas Kenner, MATTHIAS BUCHOLZ photographed a new photo series. The photographs were created at Römerkastel Köngen, which is located in the constituency of the Baden-Württemberg Senator. Plus, Matthias made a children's series, which he photographed for the Ju-Jutsu department of the Bahrenfeld sport club in Hamburg.

For example, in Tibet where the traditional greeting is to stick out the tongue from a safe distance.
For Vogue, ADRIAN SAMSON photographed an homage to Italian artist Bruno Munari – and, more precisely, to the appendix of the Italian dictionary. The publication not only translates Italian words but also gestures.
