Ludwig Migl again German Champion of Underwater Photography

In an exciting competition, Ludwig Migl and his model, Dieter Grund, won the International Open German Championship of Underwater Photography. The venue for the 36th Camera Louis Boutan was Lake Kulkwitz near Leipzig. The competition has been held since 1959 and is the most important competition in underwater photography in the German-speaking world. With his seventh 1st place, Ludwig Migl now also leads the perpetual best list of the Camera Louis Boutan.

World of Corals

Ludwig Migl focuses the view of the world on the coral reefs in the Red Sea. The way the images are taken makes a direct reference to the climate catastrophe and motivates us to work to preserve the beauty of our planet.

Ocean Plastics

UW-Landschaft im Baggersse Linkenheim

Did you know that

  • 8 million tons of plastic enter the ocean every year?
  • 1.5 million tons out of it are “invisible” (micro plastics)?
  • The average seafood eater ingests 11,000 plastic particles per year?

Especially the “invisible” tons of plastic were motivation pure for our current project about micro plastics. It’s a scary feeling that a perfect world like in the above picture is threatened by an invisible danger. The fact that you don’t see the pollution makes it hard to get the topic on the agenda.

We learned a lot about micro plastics in the course of this project. E. g. that 2/3 of the micro plastics are from the erosion of synthetic textiles and tyres! If you want to find out more we’d like to encourage you the read the new IUCN study “Primary microplastics in the oceans“.

We decided to create awareness for the ocean plastics topic. The start is here:

Ludwig Migl on TV

English version follows

Sonja Schrecklein vom SWR Landesschau Mobil wollte wissen, wer die besten Fotos macht und hat Ludwig Migl bei der Arbeit zugeschaut.

Sonja Schrecklein from SWR Landesschau Mobil wanted to know who’s shooting the best photos and watched Ludwig Migl at work. Side remark: If you don’t understand what they are talking about just look what they-are doing and don’t worry – some Germans also don’t understand them because they are talking a bit swabian dialect 🙂

The Making of Barn 11


The circle of creatives had invited and about 1,200 visitors from the greater Stuttgart area came to Altdorf. It was fascinating to see how the barns of Altdorf turned into art buildings during the two days of the Altdorf barn tour event. Here are a few impressions from barn 11.

Hats off for the strong achievement of the artists and the setup of this large project. And many thanks again to the owners of the barns who made this all possible!

Let’s get started!


For the premiere of this website we’ve selected a real tidbit. For Altdorf’s barn tour we had developed a video installation showing foliage in the course of a year. Here you can watch the fourth sequence – the winter.

The music had been composed especially for those pictures. The main sound of the synthesizers conveys both warmth and scratchy coldness.
