Kloster Ettal is a Benedictine monastery in the village of Ettal in Bavaria, Germany. In March 1922, the Russian composer Prokofiev moved there to concentrate on his opera project, "The Fiery Angel".
In 2015, I visited the small village on behalf of the Max Joseph magazine of the Bavarian State Opera.
Munich is the only place in Germany I feel at home. When I drive my bike through the English Garden in the morning it smells like freshly ploughed fields and along the banks of the Isar the scent of water and muck reminds me of Vermont lakes. On balmy evenings you can taste sickly sweet yeast wafting from the breweries.
In 2016 Zeit Magazin asked me to photograph the less obvious sides of Munich. A selection of these images and my archive were used to illustrate the "Munich" edition of the German Zeit Magazin.
In the 1980s tennis reigned supreme in Germany. Wunderkids Boris Becker and Steffi Graf inspired parents from Berlin to Munich to enroll their children in tennis classes. It was the first step towards an upper class lifestyle, a sport full of promise and glamour.
The Tennis Center Keferloh was built at the height of this trend. With over 70 courts and up to 2000 visitors per day, it was once the world-largest tennis according to the Guiness Book of World Records. Since then tennis has been on the decline and with it Tennis Center Keferloh. Yet the center is standing by the sport of kings. It staunchly remains open from eight in the morning to midnight, and that daily.
The story of Keferloh was published on nine pages in the ZEIT Magazin Nr. 30/2015
