O.I.F. (with Katja Stuke)

O.i.F. is short for Original in Farbe (original in colour).
The term was used when newspapers did not print images in full colour.
This work was first published in a black and white zine.

Spread from the first zine O.i.F. #20b as part of the Böhm zines.

O.i.F/ Movie Locations: portfolio-box including 61 colour pigment prints, fixed on cardboard. (size of the images: 23 x 18 cm; size of cardboard 29,7 x 42 cm)

After some years we decided to publish a portfolio with all images in colour.
We have been looking for a form which suits the idea of a book and also works as an exhibition.

The guide book to the images: One way to find images. Manhattan-Bridge as seen from Brooklyn was one of our first destinations in New York. It looked like expected. Almost not real. Of course a film team was just about to leave. Nowadays the streets are crowded and you find a Starbuck’s at every corner.

Sitting next to Patricia Arquette: A kind of restaurant guide book. Breakfast in Hills Coffee Shop/Hollywood – because of Swingers. Across Whilshire Boulevard (beautyfully demolished in Volcano) to Fairfax Avenue, having a hamburger in Canter’s next to the Enemy of the State. We keep on crossing the city: to Rae’s in St. Monica because of True Romance, to Burbank for of Bob’s Big Boy and Heat, and of course to Chinatown because of Jack Nicolson and Faye Dunaway. A last drink back in Pantry Cafe opposite the Hotel, and we are very sure this will be a movie location pretty soon.
