Falling Tower

The second cooling tower of the nuclear power plant in Biblis, some 70 kms (43 mls) south of Frankfurt, collapses during its controlled demolition. The power plant was shut down in 2011 following the Fukushima nuclear disaster in a political decision to phase-out nuclear power in Germany.

Madonna in Frankfurt 1987

After purchasing a simple JJC reproduktion device I just took a few frames of old negatives that I shot in 1987 when Madonna performed in Frankfurt. I remember taking these pictures was pretty difficult as none of the accredidated media were aware that we had to shoot from about a hundred meters away from the stage. I was probably the only one who brought that enormous Nikon 600mm telephoto lens. Of course, those were analogue times and I used Fuji 1600 color negative film which even had to be pushed at least one stop. The quality is accordingly bad. These photos weren’t published before.

Reproductions taken with a Sony A7r IV and FE 2.8/50 Macro lens.
