Pictures from another galaxy? Or just a bunch of frying pan photos? Great work by Christopher Jonassen.

Lene Münch – The Island of Riems

leave a comment »

There is a certain place known as the ‘Island of Diseases’, the ‘Island of Viruses’, or even the ‘Mad Island’ if you will. Regardless of its many titles it is officially called the Island of Riems. 

For about 100 years the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute (FLI) has been situated on this small island in the Baltic Sea. Behind two and a half meter high barbed wire fences, very well isolated from the outside world, highly contagious animal diseases are researched. Mad cow disease, bird flu and hoof-and-mouth disease are the better-known pathogens out of the many more strains of blight studied on this island.

In 2010, Berlin photographer Lene Münch got access to this secret world.

Some days you simply have to show up

Some days you really need to work it in order to find the perfect angle or that one unique shot, but some days … you simply need to be ready to receive it.

Thank you.
