A perfect photo consists of more than just pixels, emulsions and paper. A perfect photo has a secret. This mystery cannot be put into words and makes the perfect photo so unique and powerful. For a moment it takes the viewer out of everyday life and turns their world upside down. Therefore, a good photographer is more than just a photographer. We are very proud to have the best of these magicians among us.

Lutz Hilgers: Colourful waves for Genesis by Affinity

Villeroy & Boch are walking futuristic paths with their décor line GENESIS BY AFFINITY. Along the lines of: “Colour is the new white”, they appeal to innovative gastronomy and cuisine. Here, new creations meet exceptional design. Thus, with the choice of Lutz Hilgers as their photographer and video artist, the realization is also exceptional and skillfully made. Hilgers is known for powerful, expressive shots. Whether it’s portraits, interior design, or the like, he catches more than just the moment with his lens. Similarly, the brief spot he created for the Genesis Line is a powerful, colourful spectacle where many-coloured waves crash against Villeroy & Boch’s innocent tableware and leave their traces. Just like the new design of Villeroy & Boch promises. Hilgers masterfully takes up the desire for new ideas not only by perfectly visualizing the designs’ concepts but also by contrasting them with conceptual ideas of creative chefs. All in all, this short film conveys pleasure and creates a desire for colour. Whether it’s the porcelain’s design or the innovative dishes, Lutz Hilgers did more than just rise to the challenge.1:

David Maurer: VW Amarok

With the VW Amarok, driving enjoyment in all kinds of situations is guaranteed. The highly resilient and sporty car offers the possibility to not only drive down unknown roads, but also to discover pure wilderness and to tame rough natural forces. How do you present such an all-rounder with all its qualities? David Maurer depicts his shiny protagonist in the most diverse settings in order to capture and portray its versatility. The bumpy, rocky desert does not provide any obstacles for this car and the dustclouds make you realize how fast the car races across this rough terrain. The all-rounder also cuts a fine figure on the road, with the glistening sunlight behind its back on its way to new adventures. With his unique talent for perfectly integrating the object into the most unusual settings, Maurer manages to mirror the car’s versatility in the diverse scenery of his pictures. These pictures are worth a thousand commercials!

Florent Petitfrère: Esquire

Being a former model, Florent Petitfrère knows the tricks of fashion editorial. But knowing these tricks does not necessarily make someone a good photographer. Luckily, it does in Florent Petitfrère’s case. Fashion magazines from all over the world publish his pictures with the greatest pleasure. They all carry his unique thumbprint. Petitfrère loves black-and-white photography and knows how to stage pictures in an unusual light. This makes his picture series for Esquire Magazine even more unusual, because he actually dared to let color into his pictures this time. The result is a picture series that puts the model and his own pictorial language right in the spotlight. The actors look stiff and frozen but they are surrounded with warm colors. The contrasts and the soft focus surrounding them lend them a degree of three-dimensionality. The looks on their faces reveal a certain prudence, or thoughtfulness, which gives these wonderful pictures their own unique atmosphere.

Julia Fullerton-Batten: Little Coach

The pictures of Julia Fullerton - Batten often show lush sceneries which open up wonderful pictorial worlds and captivate the viewer due to their detail. Nonetheless, reduced pictures also suit Julia Fullerton - Batten perfectly. And this she proved for the British firm Fitbug and their Life Tracker. This time, Fullerton - Batten focuses her attention on a small device on the wrist of a young and attractive woman. Still, she manages to tease out pure joy of living of the model. Just like a manufacturer of fitness trackers loves it! She shows that Fitbugs can also be fashion accessories by creating a wonderfully colored world that perfectly highlights the variously colored trackers. Her pictures emphasize the optically appealing side beyond the trackers’ practical utility. Julia Fullerton - Batten definitely succeeded in making the Fitbug Life Tracker optically appealing for a healthy and life-affirming target audience.

Tillmann Franzen: Cadillac Cars

A Cadillac is a car that has character, its own profile and charm. It is subtle but prominent and always elegant. You might even start philosophizing that it's a car which finds its matching driver rather than the driver being the one who finds the right car. The situation is similar with Tillmann Franzen's pictures: These are pictures the presence of which you can actually feel. They are exactly the type of pictures that speak a certain language. Thus, the cooperation between Tillmann Franzen and General Motors for their Cadillac's V-Series constitutes a perfect match. In this picture series, he creates a very effective but sober romanticism that gives his pictures these special Franzen-esthetics. Presenting the Cadillac in various everyday situations means presenting its hidden aspects. The not-so-obvious, unobtrusive splendor that yearns for being discovered. This turns Franzen's pictures of the Cadillac CTS-V into a kind of flirt. The way in which he makes an outstanding contribution to the limousine’s status is just wonderful.

Maeve Stam: Potpourri aka. Patta X Prins

Okay, when that much creativity is combined, you just don't know where to begin. First of all, Vice Magazine and Hallal Production from Amsterdam are publishing a film about a young boy and his crazy friends. But if you know those two creative wells you also know that this description might sound simple and harmless but the result is a wonderfully weird potpourri of comic moments. The pictures for this film are made by Maeve Stam, a young photographer who comes from the milieu and this is where we get to the point. Stam's pictures are just as fancy and alternative as the film about little Ayoub and his life on the streets is funny and alternative. Her own humorous description on her homepage reads: "From the film roll that I found". Of course, this is not true for the two main protagonists but there are these film roll esthetics. Maeve Stam's pictures look like they emerged from pure coincidence and were stolen from another time. She just releases the shutter whenever her gut feeling tells her to and thereby she creates wonderfully transfigured and dreamy, but still very real photographs.

Sander Foederer – Secrid’s Good Souls

Sander Foederer is usually known as a photographer who likes to deal with people's behavior in the public space and light studies in his projects. His image campaign for the people of the Secrid brand is therefore all the more surprising and it is definitely worth seeing. Here, Foederer makes full use of his incredible talent and he presents the employees at their best in their respective working environments. The pictures are bright and pleasant. Just like the employees presented, all of whom are obviously enjoying their work. Sander Foederer has mastered the art of finding the perfect angle and the right moment. This makes his picture series look rather candid and not the least bit affected or posed. His way of working with soft focus and depth effects creates a kind of mouse-perspective. We are right there with him in each picture and we get to know the employees. A great work that honors the secret stars of Secrid.
