It has endless edges, tints and singularities. Berlin is a power city. You can feel it there. It’s positive and razor sharp simultaneously. Berlin can be strong and complex for its visitors.
I tried my very best to catch the spirit of it. At least how I felt it running in the cold streets with my camera.

Since they commenced their creative directorship of Valentino in 2008, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have made a point of opening the exclusive and enigmatic world of couture to a new audience. From conducting atelier visits to clarifying the importance of the relationship between an idea and its making, the duo explain how and why they are presenting a less well-known side to “Made in Italy”.

For the 2016 Spring/Summer Prada Real Fantasies, AMO graphically reinterprets the Indefinite Hangar as a synthetic sunset fixed within a 3 dimensional blank space. The abstract hangar is populated with geometric objects and furniture. Models move through a neutral scene between the undefined and distilled fragments of daily life. The horizon and scale constantly shifts, manipulating the frame and disrupting a linear sequence: an artificial landscape where fiction and collection collide.
AMO and Prada have been collaborating on the fashion house’s lookbooks since the Spring/Summer 2007 show, merging the collection with graphic and visual imagery through collage and hand-drawn shapes. Since the Spring/Summer 2012 show AMO has turned the project into Real Fantasies, a graphic short movie, introducing animation and music to the lookbooks. The project highlights the attitude of Prada and the conceptual references of the collection, season after season.
This is the 16th edition of the Prada Real Fantasies.

Terraforming imagines a world where a crystal planet has been discovered in the galaxy. It follows a young cartographer’s journey to the planet. Paying homage to 1960’s sci-fi classics with bold projections of modernism in space.
The first ever object to be designed by man 1.7 million years ago was a flint hand axe. The project juxtaposes the flint hand axe with Swarovski’s latest crystal technology; Xero chaton, the smallest precision cut crystals in the world measuring 0.6mm in diameter, smaller than a grain of sand.

This film was shot over 11 nights in March on La Palma, Canary Islands.
La Palma is often called ‘Europes’ Hawaii’ as it has all the ingredients for a perfect night sky cocktail; altitude, dry air and a lack of light pollution. These elements when combined make for a stunning night sky. Because of it’s clean air and clear skies many of the worlds top observatories have facilities on top of the island.
The main goal of this film was to capture the Milky Way rising from the horizon at a low angle across the sky. There are two main factors that affect the position of the Milky Way; latitude and time of year.
Latitude is your distance either North or South from the Earth’s equator. In the Northern Hemisphere the closer you are to the equator the higher the central core of the Milky Way will rise into the sky. La Palma is positioned at 28˚ North, which is a good latitude to photograph the central core of the Milky Way.
Time of year affects the angle in which the Milky Ways appears in the sky. The general consensus is that the Milky Way season starts in March and ends in October. In March the angle in which the Milky Way rises in the Northern Hemisphere is at its’ most acute. As Spring turns into Summer the Milky Ways angle increases tilting until it is upright through the months of June to August, then falls away back on itself slightly through September to November until the core disappears from view through the Winter months.
To achieve the correct angle I had to visit as early as possible in the season and with the new Moon phase of March being the week of the 6th the plan was set. You would think that with La Palma being at a latitude that is on par with Northern Africa the conditions would be favourable any time of the year, but with altitude and the trade winds blowing in, this was not the case.
I was hiking with a heavy pack back at altitude through very high winds, it was possibly the toughest conditions I have ever encountered in my time shooting astrophotography. But funnily enough it was not the wind, altitude or the cold that was the hardest part, the real test was having the endurance to wait out in these conditions for the Milky Way to rise which happens in March at around 3am. It is safe to say that after 11 consecutive nights of hiking from dusk and shooting until dawn I was a little broken, but adventure only truly starts when you are faced with challenges, when you overcome them, you remember these moments with far more clarity over anything else.

They don’t call Italy “Il bel paese” – “The beautiful country” – for nothing, and it’s no coincidence. For my next project I decided once again to pay homage to my homeland, a place that always leaves an impression on my heart, the southern region of Puglia.
There is a list called “1,000 Places To See Before You Die”. Casting a glance over it, one will notice that Italy – and Puglia in particular – boasts an enviable number of locations. With numerous UNESCO sites, pristine beaches, and enchanting destinations, it was difficult to restrict such beauty into a 2 minute video.
But here it is anyway, a small taste of what this amazing region has to offer. I’m sure you’ll add it to your own list of 1000 places to see before you die!
I have received so many messages asking for details on how I produce my videos.
I put down this short piece: oliver.as/videotips this explains few techniques I have been using and includes a list of equipment. Don’t hesitate to write to me if you need further details or have any recommendation.

The Sami People call it the ‘blue time’ – the period in winter when the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon in northern areas of Scandinavia. Jeff Allen visits northern Norway every year, in both winter and summer, to break out of the world of credit cards and double glazing that society has become and explore the breath-taking wilderness and coastline by sea kayak with longtime friend Bjørn Eines. In more recent years, he has taken up dog sledding under the experienced wing of Tore Albrigtsen and now guides expeditions to the region to let others witness the beauty of his favourite place on earth.
