»the new york issue« is a magazine that developed during my stay in new york city in the summer of 2010.
i introduce designers and artists as well as places and things that ­inspire visually and create an ­individual ­feeling for the city. my intension was to open up a preferably personal ­impression of the featured personalities and their ­environment. the photographic portraits show their work, workspace and themself. In the interviews they talk about their way of working and personal thoughts about the city they live in.
