Tell us more about this image
This image spawned from two dear friends and I deciding to throw some swift plans together and drive four hours south of the city till we reached an ever-favourite Mountain range. We parked up in the darkness, made a quick  coffee to fuel us onwards and started on up the mountain!
It’s rather peculiar to climb a mountain in the dark. There’s very little clues as to what your walking amongst. We heard a few kangaroo’s skip off as we walked into their radar, bar that there was nothing. It’s only on the way back down that you often realise your walking trail was sitting right on the edge of a ridge.

It was about halfway up that we realised something magical was taking place. Once we had cleared the tree line we looked behind us and caught a glimpse of the most brilliant pink skyline. As we kept scaling the sunrise became ever more luminescent. Strangely it only ever got pinker and pinker, until we were flooded in bright, bubblegum pink and looking beyond at the range around us, the whole thing seemed some naturalistic Dr Suess wonderland! I snapped this photo on a Fujifilm X100 and I knew as I took it that it was a magical snap.

A Curious Question To / Julian Glander

julian_glander

In french, ‘glander’ means waste time, slack off, procrastinate. Do you think your name in french applies to you?

Well, everyone goofs around sometimes, right? I hope so. I don’t really procrastinate much, but there is a lot of structured slacking in my life. Taking weird, long breaks in the middle of my workday to nap or skateboard is an integral part of my process. I would be hugely burnt out and uninspired out if I didn’t fit some time-wasting time into each day. Idk, maybe I’ve been subconsciously shaped by my name. I’m guess okay with that!

Tell us more about this image

The picture was taken in 1996 at the crack of dawn during a millitary exercise. back in the days there has been a general conscription in germany. you could decide either to do social or millitary service. as i was a naiv young man looking for exitement, i have choosen the army service. at this time i was not interestet in photographie at all. i just took some random shots for the photo album. some months ago i found the negativs, scanned them and was quite surprised by the atmosphere.

from my todays perspective i see young men, still kids, playing war, exercising to kill. to imagine and empathise what war actually means to peoole is gross. FUCK ALL governments and filthy old men, that are sending there young men to war, just to make the next move on the global chessboard of economics and power!
