4th of December: Maryam and Rolf Sachs

Maryam and Rolf Sachs, Designers: "Our 'Emperor' has a passion: Each time he wishes to appear in the eyes of his subjects in a new light. With deliberation he chooses his form of appearance and dresses himself according to the colours and temperatures that change with the moods of the year."

The 'Emperor' is the majestic mountain peak ‘Wilder Kaiser’, on the border between Germany and Austria, and Rolf Sachs, designer and photographer, and his wife Maryam Sachs have published a beautifully illustrated book titled ‘The Wild Emperor’ featuring large-size panoramic photos of the mountain.

Throughout 2004 Maryam and Rolf Sachs let their camera, which was housed in a purposed built shelter, shoot nearly 50,000 photographs, each taken every 10 and half minutes, on the balcony of the lodge Rechenau near Kiefersfelden in Bavaria.

The pictures succeed in capturing nature’s ever changing moods.
