ANKE LUCKMANN : with the PORSCHE PANAMERA 4S E-Hybrid and musician Yun-Jin Cho, first violinist of the famous Gewandhaus Orchestra, through the music city of Leipzig

For CHRISTOPHERUS MAGAZINE and Delius Klasing Corporate Publishers, ANKE LUCKMANN went on a trip with the new Porsche Panamera and Yun-Jin Cho, the celebrated violinist from the famous Gewandhaus Orchestra, through the music city of Leipzig. The Gewandhaus Quartet is a string quartet ensemble, which was founded in 1808.

The exceptional talent left her home town of Seoul at the age of fifteen because she wanted to study music abroad. Since 2008, Yun Jin Cho has been playing in the Gewandhaus Orchestra and is meanwhile the Deputy 1st Concertmaster. In 2015, she also took on a lecturing tenure at the Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Academy of Music and Theater in Leipzig. “The orchestra has always had a fantastic reputation,” says Yun-Jin Cho and adds, “At the time I didn’t realize how deeply the roots of classical music run in this city.”

Porsche has reliably partnered with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra already since 2011 in a cooperation aimed at making classical music accessible to everyone. Since 2014, experiencing classical music has been the focus of its activities. The concert series attracts thousands of visitors each year to Leipzig’s Rosental park – both free of charge and open air.

ANKE LUCKMANN : ‘Blind Date’ with the beach volleyball pro and climate responsible athlete Jeremy Casebeer in Joshua Tree National Park

ANKE LUCKMANN met up with Jeremy Casebeer for a shoot in the nature reserve in southern California – and we have the result here on GoSee. “If you Google Jeremy Casebeer, what immediately appears is a volleyball and a mustache… What a cool guy… I arranged to meet with him for a photo spread in Joshua Tree National Park and the surrounding area, where a series was created with the super athlete.”

Jeremy Casebeer, aka the Lorax, was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California, playing all sports as a kid and enjoying the beaches and mountains, surfing, hiking and camping. He delayed a ‘traditional’ career in sustainability to play beach volleyball professionally in the US for the Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP), around the world for the International Federation of Volleyball (FIVB) and in Brazil on the pro tour (CBV).
​​
The Lorax is a voice for the sustainability generation; he speaks for the trees, the beach, and the ocean. Through his efforts to bring sustainability into sports, Jeremy became a climate responsible athlete: measuring his carbon footprint, taking actions to reduce it and offset the rest. As an ambassador for Sustainable Surf and EcoAthletes, Jeremy is committed to protecting our beaches and raising consciousness for our environment. 

The passion he brings to the court is matched by his love for beach volleyball and his quest to spread the game through clinics, coaching, and sharing performance tips.​ In 2019, Jeremy returned to UCLA as the volunteer Assistant Coach for the women’s beach volleyball team and to earn a certificate in sustainability.

ANKE LUCKMANN photographs ‘Barcelona Boxing’ during the lockdown on a rooftop terrace high above the Spanish metropolis

ANKE LUCKMANN stands for international transportation productions, strong portraits and artificial landscape or architecture projects, but also surprises us once in a while with thrilling sport reportages. At the moment, she presents us ‘Barcelona Boxing’ on GoSee, which was photographed during the first corona wave in the cosmopolitan capital of the Spanish region Catalonia.

“During the lockdown in Spain, rooftop terraces all of a sudden became the only personal space anyone could stay outside. They were used more frequently and diversely than ever before. People came to play music, to sunbathe and, of course, to do sports on the roofs. I accompanied Alfredo and his friends during their daily boxing training – the boys are lucky to have a rooftop terrace like that.” the photographer tells us.

Post production of the motifs was taken care of by Jenny Cremer.
