‘I miss you’ – Ralph Mecke photographs retro soccer for the editorial collaboration between FAZ Mag and Achtung/Sepp, post-produced by RECOM

Soccer in the good old days. The smell of summer in the air everywhere, friends on the soccer field, playing until it gets dark… and all wearing the jersey of your hero. All summer long…. 

“We discovered something. Boxes with jerseys collected by Fabio Quaranta since he was a young boy, fifteen at the time, Rome in the 80s, bargains picked up at the flea market, of all sizes, colors, cuts, patterns, stripes. You can wear it all now – and Grace Wales Bonner shows you Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, worn under a blazer or alone. Good pants, a jersey, … the rest is but a dream.” SEPP Magazine.

In charge of creative retouch for the editorial photographed by Ralph Mecke, created in collaboration between FAZ Mag and Achtung/Sepp, was RECOM.

Designer Fabio Quaranta is the head of his own label, named after him and founded in 2010, and is also a fashion and design lecturer at the IUAV University in Venice, Italy.

BMW M Hybrid V8 – the 20th Art Car by Julie Mehretu - studio visuals, artist portraits and CGI shots on location with creative retouch via RECOM

Ethiopian-American artist and New York resident Julie Mehretu is the 20th artist to have designed a BMW Art Car – and she has transformed the BMW M Hybrid V8 race car into a performative high-speed work of art. And RECOM had the pleasure of going to work with creative retouch on no less than two projects with BMW’s brand-new Art Car #20 by Julie Mehretu. For one, captivating studio visuals of the BMW Art Car were created together with Tereza MUNDILOVA c/o SHOTVIEW featuring portraits of the artist. And the other was creative retouch for the BMW Art Car together with photographer Andreas Hempel and the CG vehicle on location.

As visual consultant, Ena Aichinger supported both productions: “Creating these exceptional PR images for global communication together with photographer Tereza Mundilová, who is super-talented and easy to work with, as well as client Christiane Pyka was both a fun experience and creative challenge. I really do love great teamwork for this kind of project, and it was definitely one where everyone worked together beautifully throughout the process.”

For the design of the 20th BMW Art Car, she transformed a two-dimensional image into a three-dimensional representation for the first time, with which she succeeded in bringing dynamism into form. Julie Mehretu used the color and form vocabulary of her monumental painting ‘Everywhen’ (2021 – 2023) as a starting point for her design. The work is currently on view at the artist’s major retrospective at Palazzo Grassi in Venice and will subsequently become part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, to which it has been gifted.

The Art Car celebrated its world premiere with an unveiling on 21 May 2024 at Centre Pompidou in Paris and will now compete in the upcoming 92nd 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race next week.

This co-op between BMW and Julie Mehretu also includes a joint commitment to a series of PanAfrican Translocal Media Workshops for filmmakers, which will tour various African cities in 2025 and 2026, and will culminate in a major exhibition at the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) in Cape Town.
