I was happy to work at the TEDxRC² event in Geneva on Sunday. This was an independent TED event organised with the Red Cross and Red Crescent. Topic was Multiplying the power of humanity and amongst the speakers were Norwegian minister of foreign affairs Jonas Gahr Støre and music from Senegal's Seckou Keita. I was working for Nestlé which was one of the sponsors of the event.

Nestlé needed 66 people to walk 66 meter on the treadmill,
they would sponsor a 66th water pump in Ivory Coast. They did it!

Paris Photo 2011

Paris Photo @ Grand Palais
Every second weekend of November is when photographers and anyone interested in photography invade Paris. It is the worlds biggest fair for photography sales. If you are not buying photography, you get to see some amazing photography amongst the more then 100 galleries from around the world represented here. I've just arrived and can't wait to go and see the exhibits tomorrow! As Champs-Élysées was closed at mid day today, it made for some interesting "street photography"...
Day 2 update:

Well, the show was great! 
"Africa" was this years topic
Lots of people, lots of photography

Allminds London workshop

I was in London last week having a workshop for Allminds (www.allminds.ch). Part of the workshop was photographing the magician Christopher Howell (www.projectillusions.com & www.christopherhowell.net). His new act, containing three oranges (?!?) is absolutely fantastic! I will not describe it as it would not make justice to the act! You better book him and see it for yourself...
