Lusk, Wyoming - 2018
(A wider shot of this place)
For the past couple of years, I have been dealing with emotional burn out. My job is mostly blind: I rarely know if my pictures truly make a difference. Yet I keep pushing forward, into the unknown, through stories that challenge my mental health daily.
So I can’t tell you how amazing it is to receive messages like the one I got from Amanda @dendogs. It came at a sad time for her, as she has just lost her beloved Benson. But she wrote to say she’d adopted Benson from @adoptmiamipets 3 years ago, after seeing my picture. What a gift their story was!
“I came across photos you took of this handsome senior bulldog on @urgentdogsofmiami. His fur was missing. He was dirty. But man, he was happy. His face reminded me of my late grandfather (weird, I know). At the time Benson was named "Sparky", which happened to be my grandfather's dog’s name. The shelter said Benson was going to be sent to Canada, and if I wanted him, I needed to be there the next day. I was fighting bronchitis, but I called my friend Gena and the next day we drove straight to Miami. I got Benson’s leash and made the 5h drive back home. .
Benson was in rougher shape than I realized. He was completely bald on his back and he had purple stains all over him. His belly hung really low. After numerous vet visits we found out he had Cushing's. The medication was not cheap but Benson was worth it. He fit in with our pack (6 dogs!). .
One day, Benson crashed. Luckily our vets jumped in to help. They diagnosed Benson with Addison’s disease, the opposite of Cushing’s. New treatment plan, but he made it. Our pack continued to grow. Benson was one of NINE dogs when he passed. He lived a truly great life. He received so much love. Oddly enough, his favorite thing to do was go to our vets. .
People thought I was insane for adopting a 6th dog, a dog I knew nothing about, a dog someone else discarded, an old dog, five hours away. I can't explain it. I saw your photo of him and I just knew he was my dog. Dogs like Benson are so easily overlooked and passed up. It's unfortunate. Did he give us a ton of years? No. But did he give us an incredible three years? Absolutely.” .

Winter is here and it makes me miss this place ... take me back!!
This must be one of the coolest hotels in the world. I mean literally, this place is made out of snow and ice 🥶⠀
I shot few hyperlapses there with @feiyutech's AK4500 gimbal (*gimbal received for review) in order to keep my camera balanced and direction locked to specific direction. Worked perfectly even in the cold. Another bonus is that AK4500 is a lot lighter than my old gimbal, you can definitely feel the difference after few hours 😅⠀

A lo largo de mi vida la @unam_mx ha sido un espacio de inspiración y aprendizaje.
En sus calles aprendí a andar en bici y a manejar un coche. En sus salas conocí el arte, la escultura, el cine, el teatro, la musica. En sus aulas la arquitectura. En sus jardines la contemplación y el silencio.
Un espacio que mas allá de una formación académica como arquitecto, me ha brindado un lugar dentro de la ciudad para descubrir mucho de lo que soy, de lo que me define.
No puedo estar seguro de que ese haya sido el objetivo del Campus Universitario. Pero sin duda ese Campus ha sembrado y cultivado historias que me seguirán acompañando.

Exceptional times call for exceptional compassion... sending a long distance hug, smile and pat on the back. The days, weeks and months ahead we are going to discover just how connected we all are. One pulse, one heartbeat, one planet.

📷 @pomiaan 📍 Raffles Hotel
Raffles Hotel Singapore started as a privately owned beach house built in the early 1830s. It first became Emerson's Hotel when Dr. Charles Emerson leased the building in 1878. Upon his death in 1883, the hotel closed, and the Raffles Institution stepped in to use the building as a boarding house until Dr. Emerson's lease expired in September 1887.
The Raffles Hotel was established by Armenian hoteliers, the Sarkies Brothers, in 1887. The hotel was named after British statesman Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, the founder of modern Singapore.
It is the flagship property of Raffles Hotels & Resorts, and is managed by AccorHotels after Accor acquired FRHI Hotels & Resorts. The hotel is owned by Qatar-based, government-owned Katara Hospitality. The hotel commenced Phase 3 of a three-phase restoration programme on 13 December 2017 and reopened in August 2019 following the completion of the renovation. The hotel won the award for the renovation and restoration from the AHEAD Asia awards.
Fun Fact: The hotel was where Nick and Rachel stayed when they arrived in Singapore in Crazy Rich Asians (film).

#koenigdigital: What can art be in the digital age? How can it be experienced?
To experience the digital exhibition “Surprisingly This Rather Works” by Manuel Rossner (@manuelrossner) the visitor turns into an avatar and interacts with objects that are part of a parcours. 3D artists often use already existing assets, that’s why Rossner works with an avatar from a warehouse for 3D models. The gallery is turned into a gaming environment inspired by 90s game show “American Gladiators” and so-called gyms that are used for cutting-edge research in artificial intelligence by companies such as OpenAI in San Francisco.
Rossner’s exhibition is part of the group exhibition “The Artist Is Online”, which will focus on art in the digital age, and which is curated by @johann.koenig and myself. "Surprisingly This Rather Works” can be experienced via the app KÖNIG GALERIE. #Linkinbio to download in App Store.
P.S. Dear Android folks, get in touch with me via DM if you want to test the app
As promised, this week I thought I would run a small contest for those of you interested in improving your photo editing skills. I will do an hour editing session with three people via Skype or Zoom and either edit a photo of yours with you or one of my own and you can follow along. You can ask questions and hopefully take away a few useful techniques and tips.
To be chosen, you must be following my account, then simply tell me how this would be beneficial to reaching your photography goals or how it might help you pass this time in self-isolation. Bonus point for tagging a friend in your comment. I will select three individuals on April 15 and direct message you to arrange a time that works for you to meet up in the next week. Your photo edit will also be shared via my stories in the coming weeks.
I have loved seeing others giving back during this time and hope this will be helpful to many of you.
Stay safe everyone.
