Euromaxx-Highlights of the Week

Lifestyle Europe

In this edition:

Speed Specialists

We report on The Marmalade, a company from Hamburg which has developed a robot that can combine speedy photo shots with extremely fast camera movements for commericals that catch the spill on film.

Dark Art

German-Irish artist Gregory McKechnie creates elaborate collages that reference a panoply of historical, cultural and religious motifs. A Berlin gallery is hosting his first solo show, and some critics are already calling him the next Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Animal Magnetism

Iris Schieferstein's provocative fashion accessories have earned her a following that includes the likes of Lady Gaga. The designer lives on the outskirts of Berlin, and makes shoes from real horse hooves and headwear from taxidermied animals. Needless to say, her works are controversial.


Music Portuguese Fado is the most melancholy of the musical genres, and Carminho has already made a name for herself at home as one of the best on the young Fado scene. Now she's touring Europe with her newest album and looks set to seal that reputation abroad.

Double Take

Martin Schoeller is one of the world's best-known and trusted portrait photographers. Once a student of Annie Leibovitz, he's had everyone from Angelina Jolie and George Clooney to Barack Obama sit for him. His latest series puts the focus on twins and triplets. We met up with him at a shooting in Berlin.
