On the 3rd of February, the 550th anniversary of the death of Johannes Gutenberg was celebrated, which will be commemorated throughout 2018 with a multitude of events and exhibitions all over Europe around the figure of the brilliant German inventor.

After an hectic academic year full of new challanges its time for a well deserved holydays. See you on my return. Enjoy!!!! Ueps! When i will be back , a new idea: workshops with my Polaroid Land Cameras! 😉
