Since 2019 Thomas Krempke has been working on the photographic-literary long-term project "Ëndërr! - On Trying to Become Albanian." For this project he received a grant from the Landis & Gyr Foundation. "Ëndërr" is Albanian and means dream, meaning the dream of leaving and travelling, in both directions, their dream of migration and ours, the touristic one. Where these two dreams cross, the project "Ëndërr!" explores the world of imagination and images.
From 13th January 2021:
NEW FACES IN SWISS CINEMA - a portrait study for the "Solothurn Film Festival"
"Zurich based filmmaker and photographer Thomas Krempke is the guest photographer of the 56th Solothurn Film Festival. In November and December 2020, he traveled through Switzerland in search of the still unknown faces of Swiss film. He introduces them with his portrait series accompanying the new competition "Opera Prima". By creating triptychs and statements about the role of cinema, he approaches the personal side of the directors behind the films. Thomas Krempke's photographic work for the 56th Solothurn Film Festival will be featured before and during the festival in the magazine of the new Solothurn Film Festival website and on the Film Festival's social media (Facebook , Instagram ) will be extended daily until Tuesday, January 25, 2021."
