So nice? So fresh! Our best Sony shoots

Today the exhibition of this year's Sony World Photography Awards opens in Berlin. A good reason to take a look at our own shots with the cameras of the Japanese manufacturer - and to choose our personal favorites.

Porsche Seen

You see me - you don't see me. The Seen series with the Porsche studies from the Design Center in Weissach is virtually the essence of automotive photography: the exclusive cars were only visible for a few brief moments. And these moments were captured by editor-in-chief and publisher Michael Köckritz himself with his Sony a9. So that you can look at them again and again. Even when the vehicles are back in Porsche's warehouse, as they are now.

Bugatti Centodieci

It is often worthwhile to become aware of one's own past - in order to then define the course for the present. Which is why in 2019 Bugatti decided to dedicate a monument to the Italian interlude in the 1990s with the »Centodieci.« A very special story with incomparable lost-place aesthetics, captured in the abandoned »La Fabricca Blu« in Campogalliano. By photographer and editor Matthias Mederer. And, of course, accompanied by Achim Anscheidt.

La La Land?

La La Lamborghini! At least for this one night, when Matthias Mederer was driving the Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster in the City of Angels, also known as Los Angeles. Between sky blue, the dark of night and the lights of the city. In addition to the particularly photogenic sides of the metropolis, he then also shows us why photography means something like »painting with light«. We thank him - and enjoy looking at the pictures a little longer.

Porsche Summervibes

Five 911s in one stroke. What more could you want. The meeting place is Stuttgart Airport. Behind the cameras ramp editor-in-chief & publisher Michael Köckritz, photographer Kirill Kirsanov and multi-talent Matthias Mederer. Accompanied by pastel colors, high-key shots and lots of summer vibes. Together this makes up our »Tasteful 8«.

McLaren 620R

Zum Abschluss geht es nach Berlin. Und versprochen, dort schauen wir uns die Sony World Photography Awards dann auch an – aber erst morgen. Denn was gibt es besseres, als in der Hauptstadt selbst mit einer Kamera der Japaner loszuziehen? Stimmt, nicht wirklich viel. Und zwar ganz besonders, wenn man die heiß-kalte Nacht dabei auch noch in Begleitung eines McLaren 620R – dem GT4-Rennwagen für die Straße – verbringen darf. So wie unser Matthias Mederer eben.

Outfit of the day: »What have you got?«

Let's talk about lasting effects. Marlon Brando achieved this not only with the sentence above in the film "The Wild One" - it was Brando's dry answer to the question of what he was rebelling against - but also with his look.

Reeves Reloaded

Keanu Reeves has established a reputation as an action star and in recent years has gained an almost cult-like following for his genuine likeability. Oddly enough, it is precisely this combination that has allowed the fifty-seven-year-old actor to maintain something that can’t be faked: coolness.

Of quaking and living: Kurt Molzer rides the '69 Charger R/T

Since Kurt started writing for ramp again and driving these insane, up to 1,000 horsepower supercars, he's been losing more and more touch with and interest in normal life - according to himself. What helps? Hopefully this completely normal madness behind the wheel of a 1969 Dodge Charger.

The fabric of dreams: Alcantara at Autostyle 2021

Beautiful, lightweight and often found in fast cars: that's Alcantara. You could also say: The somewhat different fabric. The microfiber multi-talent is not only suitable for motorsports, but also has fashion and astronomical potential - as Filippo Taiani shows us at Autostyle 2021.
