Interview with Sebastian Mayer

Sebastian Mayer is a photographer with an unruly, curious eye. He is well-known to magazine readers all over the world for his portraits of musicians. However, it was his RANDOM series what really caught my attention. A juxtaposition of two seemingly random photographs which attract and repel each other at the same time, causing a wonderfully provoking, eye-opening tension each time you look. A sublime visual blast of a two-verse haiku: anachronistically honest and disruptively up-to-date. I met Sebastian Mayer in his apartment in Wedding to talk not only about the concept behind the RANDOM series, but also about his personal detours and the experience of time in his photographic oeuvre.

Say hello to Kuru!

© 2019 Kuru. @convolutes

Kuru is a lifelong notebook lover, whose passion for writing was rekindled while tracing the footsteps of writers passing through Berlin from St. Petersburg, Moscow, London, San Francisco, Mexico City, Alexandria, Tokyo, Seoul…. A scholar of art and literature, Kuru’s preferred mode of research is travel and her constant companions are her favorite notebooks and fountain pens, cherished for their simple practical beauty. Writing, sketching, and watercoloring have helped her to capture the unpredictable yet ceaselessly arising magic of visions appearing on the road. Here, dreams, enchanting illusions, and startling insights abound, and, best of all, the texture of everyday details that show us what a good day can feel like anywhere. She loves to get lost in cities and found in nature. She has often been spotted sporting a Berlin Notebook while aimlessly wandering down alleyways and loitering in cafes. #nomadicscript هناوهناك#

We are excited to share more Kuru’s stories with you!
