First edition of "ECHT Bayern". Pictures of bands from the region around the Chiemsee Lake, where the heart of the new folk music scene from Bavaria is beating. LaBrass Banda, Django 3000, Braxnmaxn, Keller Steff or Mundwerk Crew, stylistically very different but all of them agree in their concern to play honest music in Bavarian dialect. While I accompanied the bands, I had little luck: stress during the festival saison, rainy open air shows, heavy thunderstorms, holiday traffic jams on the highway... Hence the image of Mundwerk crew on a motorway rest area!
Today I got the new calendar published by the tourist agencies of Schliersee, Fischbachau and Bayrischzell in Bavaria, Germany with many of my pictures. There are beautiful landscapes and features on bavarian traditions and craftsmanships. Happy to be a part of this year after year and all the best to my fellow photographers participating in this project!
