For more than ten years now I was planning to shoot a video using 3D photography and the so-called «bullet time effect». Something about that vision is even older and goes back to my childhood when I gazed through my «3d view master» watching burning objects fall down to earth.
Two years ago I had the opportunity to visit these old military bunkers in the Üetliberg here in Zurich, Switzerland and bring my gear, a performer and an assistant with me. You can't imagine how dark and silent it is down there, I've never seen a more beautiful and frightening place like this before. These bunkers were built for WW2 and kept secret for decades, they were never finished nor used and I'm happy to have brought a little bit of culture down there instead.
Who you see here is my friend Lark Ring, the perfect character for these rough surroundings. He's a complex figure who radiates many things: agility, sensitivity and vulnerability but also coolness, pride and a dash of narcissism.
