Carla Kogelman’s vision of childhood

Merkenbrechts is a small, rural village in Waldviertel, Austria, with a population of 200. It has a fire station, a church, and a large stretch of water where the village’s 35 children spend their summers swimming, climbing trees and playing hide and seek.

Carla Kogelman originally visited the area in 2012 while working on a documentary about the region for a commission. During her stay she met Sonja and Roman Liebhart, who invited her to come and photograph their children on their farm in Merkenbreacht.

Visiting the village, Kogelman found its residents were very conscious of how they produced and consumed resources. They powered their homes using solar panels, resisted using chemicals on their crops, and had community gardens in which children could learn to grow their own vegetables and herbs. “People over there, they just care about the soil, about the earth, about each other and the animals,” she says.

Daniel Gebhart De Koekkoek’s jumping cats keep him on his toes

Cats may have nine lives, but since curiosity killed the cat it’s probably a good thing. All these cats have been caught mid-jump, flying through the air by photographer Daniel Gebhart De Koekkoek. These seemingly acrobatic feats see our agile pets leaping across entire rooms, suspended before they come back down to earth. An entertaining series that taps into the popularity of the jumping photograph phenomenon.
