I took this photo in 2007 during the shooting of the movie JOHN RABE at the Huangpu river, where we had the boat backdrop. I have shot and edited this image for the ‘China Prophecy: Shanghai’ exhibition in The Skyscraper Museum in Lower Manhattan, New York City. Due to the limited space in the museum, only a dozen of images are showcased. This is one of the ‘lost’ images. You can order prints from this photo here. […]

Now that the movie has opened and many people will hopefully go and see it, […]
That earthquake in Taiwan really makes my life a living hell: Just take a look at that loading bar…. I hope they tell the truth, as I am unable to work on my websites with full power…
At the age of four, my dad took me to see Disney�s The Great Mouse Detective in a cinema. Seeing an animated mouse on a big screen was more then fun, it was a groundbreaking experience for me.
