With the Photo Books from Schmolka, Poinsard and Babic, daab was already able to find new and young photographers with enough creative potential for coffee-table-sized books. Following the idea to support young artists, daab now discovered a new talent: Alexander Straulino, a young German photographer living in Berlin.Born in Munich in 1973, Straulino has lived in Los Angeles and Miami and had his first big photographical success in Prague. His work has appeared in many international publications including Vogue, Madame, Elle, Amica, Clam and Tush. Straulino's photography explores the elusive void between fashion and art. His work is a unique dialogue between the conscious and the subconscious and questions our inbuilt beliefs in what beauty and eroticism actually are.
