In October 2015, German TV broadcasting station ARD dedicated a themed week to the topic "Heimat", to show the diversity of our country with all its cultural and historical influences. Actress Natalia Woerner (born in Western Germany) and actor Joerg Schuettauf (born in Eastern Germany) are holding a public sponsorship for this week, and it was my pleasure to portray them for ARD.
When were looking for a perfect setting, we decided to put the portrait in a slightly ironic context. Of course Germany has a lot more to offer, but the stereotypical image of Germany includes the Alps, deer and traditional clothing, so we wanted to capture this.
Our aim was to be a little bit ironic towards the term "Heimat", but not to ridicule it.Natalia and Joerg did a great job, they gave us the perfect expressions for this photo, and the client was very happy with the result.
