At this year’s photokina we will show the most beautiful photos taken by ZEISS fans from all over the world in our digital gallery. For that purpose we asked you to send us your best ZEISS photos. Not only will they be shown at our booth but one chosen photographer will travel to Cologne to visit photokina and see the photos at first hand. And we received many great submissions!


Participation until June 8, 2014 on the ZEISS community on Flickr

Happy Birthday, Touit! We are celebrating the first birthday of our lens family for compact system cameras with APS-C sensor – a great reason to see what sort of great application images you have created so far. Until June 8, you have the possibility to submit the best image that you have taken with a Touit lens on our Flickr group. Afterwards, a prominent jury consisting of ZEISS experts as well as the four participants of last year’s "The ZEISS Challenge: Touit in Bangkok" will select the winning image.

The new building in the Ecole Poly Federale de Lausanne is a masterpiece of contemporary architecture. Berlin photographer and physicist Peter Fauland embarked on a photographic tour of discovery, accompanied by his Touit 2.8/12.

Like a UFO that has just landed" – this is the description that springs to mind the first time you set eyes on the Rolex Learning Center on the campus of the Ecole Poly Federale de Lausanne (EPFL). The interconnected complex of buildings was opened in 2010 and extends over an area of 88,000 square meters (980,000 square feet). Despite its size, the structure radiates a sense of lightness and movement: the roof and floor run parallel to one another in the shape of a wave. The building is intended to serve as a laboratory for new forms of learning. For Berlin photographer Peter Fauland, it became a laboratory for photographic experimentation: "I've been fascinated by the Rolex Learning Center for some time now. A few weeks ago, I finally saw the building in its complete form and knew right away that it had to be the venue for my next workshop. At the same time, I thought that this masterpiece of modern architecture would be the perfect setting for a photo series with the Touit 2.8/12."
