Back to New York and the end of New York Photoblog
Click image to enlarge
Dear friends, supporters and visitors of New York Photoblog,
I left New York about 3 months ago and went back to Vienna. I enjoyed the time back home, I continued to photograph, had a couple of assignments for a newspaper, enjoyed the time with my girlfriend and my family. But I also missed New York, it's energy, it's composure, it's people, the streets...
About two weeks ago Mark Lubell and Claudine Boeglin from Magnum New York called me to ask me if I'd like to return to Magnum for another 3 months to work on an important project. This time I'd get payed, the internship is over. To make a long story short and not bother you with details, I said yes after my girlfriend said ok.
So I am happy to announce that I'll be back in New York City from March to May 2006. Yeah baby, the adventure continues... :-)
At the same time this is the official announcement of the end of New York Photoblog. Since I don't know what time will bring and I can't run a website about New York if I'm not there, I worked on a new project, a new website, a new blog that will be about photojournalism, photography and passion.
I am happy to have Lexar, ColorVision and Digital Railroad as sponsors for my new project. They again support me with their equipment and know-how. I am still negotiating with Canon and really hope that they'll also continue to support me.
The new website "Journal Of A Photographer" will launch on March 1st 2006. So long you can check out my portfolio website or my Digital Railroad archive for some recent photographs.
New York Photoblog will of course stay online for now. Fell free to browse the archives or check out some of my favourite posts. I selected a couple of posts from New York Photoblog which I find most interesting, entertaining or somehow informative.
