Lamm & Kirch is a graphic design studio focusing on the creation of books, visual identitys, and exhibitions in the broad field of the cultural sector. We mostly do printed matter. Our approach is defined by continuous cooperations in shifting constellations. We like the old and the new, the obvious and the hidden. The studio functions as a research facility to explore various ways of visual language. Our idea of working is defined by working “with” instead of “for” somebody.

Thomas Friedrich Schaefer had the opportunity to observe different social and familial environments within distinct communities. Since moving back to Germany, he has tried to assess his memories and his past within his images. He recently finished a long-term photographic project creating and documenting elaborately staged environments that play on the essence of fragmented childhood memories. The project required him to construct staged rooms using technical skills which he obtained early in his studies while studying architecture and engineering.
Thomas continues to stage images in his studio in Berlin. His work includes hyper-realistic sets that provide the narrative framework to moments of interpersonal relationship. What seem like irrelevant and forgettable moments take on an importance and poignancy.
