Founders

Nicolas Hafele

After studying photojournalism & documentary photography at the Hannover University of Applied Science and Arts, Nicolas keeps up the joy for telling stories. He sees a deep connection between pictures and language and the way we perceive our surrounding. As images are the preliminary perception before we change them into language, Nicolas enjoys experimenting with pictures and the way they speak to us. He uses his background as a way of expression for editorial works, such as portraits, storytelling or fashion shoots.

Clemens Ascher

The Austrian photographer Clemens Ascher has established himself as a unique voice in contemporary photography. He has developed a strong and recognizable style, which draws its power from being calm and detached but warm and inviting at the same time. Through abstraction and reduction he strips down reality to it’s essence and reveals the simplistic beauty of situations, structures and landscapes. His aesthetics are clean and graphic jet very human. They feature a distinct elegancy and a touch of irony. Besides exhibiting internationally Clemens also continues to collaborate with international brands and magazines to create cutting edge imagery and mesmerizing visual worlds. He splits his time between Innsbruck, Vienna and London
