Photographers Ursula Sprecher & Andi Cortellini have been working together since 2007 in a beautiful series of photos called HobbyBuddies. As the name announces, these carefully staged pictures show groups of people who get together regularily and enjoy a common hobby.
In their series HobbyBuddies, they show arranged group portraits of people who meet regularly due to a sharedinterest. No matter what they call themselves – interest group, association, club, clique or league – the focus inthese groups is always on voluntary commitment and the joy of pursuing a common cause or shared idea.
These staged pictures were each taken at a carefully selected location, at a scheduled time, with scenery builtand specifically arranged to show a certain number of members of the group.The subjects of the group pictures come from all walks of life, age groups, ethnicities and religions.
This is part of a series in which we are featuring futuristic, alien-looking or just plain awesome images of landscapes, cityscapes, and objects. If you are a photographer with such work, please drop me a line here.
