A photo-essay about the eponymous Captain Flint.

It is a Sunday in April. A strong, gusty wind on the Canary Island of La Gomera. I am sitting in a dark living room. Time seems to stand still. Around me furnishings in the style of "Rustic German" dating from the 1970s. Hunting trophies, a skeleton, a treasure chest, swords and books. I am not alone. With me is Captain Flint.

TWO WAY LENS – project

July 2009 an interview with Oliver Weber has been added to the TWO WAY LENS – project. Two Way Lens is a project of interviews with international, contemporary photographers. Their answers to three simple questions about their career paths, presented in this project, should help, inspire and inform emerging photographers. The tips and advice provided will be of value to every young photographer. A new photographer/ interview is added to the project every month. The list of photographers already included is like a “whos who” of the contemporary fine art photography scene. As a reflection of this high value, Two Way Lens is added to recommended reading lists as a reference source for photography students at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. Two Way Lens is published and edited by the German photographer, Michael Werner. Oliver Weber is the first German Photographer who is included in Two Way Lens.

Oliver was invited to take part on several international “solo” and “group” exihibitions including his work, like the DOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel, Germany (one of the world’s most important exhibitions for contemporary art) and the PHOTOKINA (2012) in Cologne, Germany (the world’s largest trade fair for the photographic and imaging industries).

November 2015 he received his Professor of Visual Arts at California University.
