We made it to 3.000 portraits and ANDERSRUMportrait® goes international!
After three wonderful photo shoots during the winter we now actually photographed 3.000 people, who present themselves each with individual ANDERSRUMportraits and set a mark against homo- phobia!
We´re really happy about this great response and support and look forward to a new ANDERSRUMportrait® exhibition.
ANDERSRUMportrait® is your personal contribution for more diversity and against homophobia.
Best wishes Alexa Seewald & Team

1. Previous photo shoots
Photo shoot at New Year Reception in Hamburg town hall
ANDERSRUMportrait® was invited to have a photo shoot against homophobia at the queer New Year Reception at Hamburg town hall for the second time. Spirits were high and the atmosphere familiar, while the magnificent historic ambiance encouraged extraordinary motives- like group portraits with racing bikes or "bare facts".
Photo shoot at Chicago Cultural Center
In December 2013 ANDERSRUMportrait® had two big US photo shoots in Chicago, one of them right beneath the world's largest Tiffany stained-glass dome at "Chicago’s Cultural Center".
Among the participants were numerous guest of the Chicago Fashion Congress, taking place in Chicago at the same time. Due to their professional fashion sense many splendid motives with a high quality touch were created.
Photo shoot at Chicagos biggest LGBITQ-Center
In the middle of Chicago the "Center on Halsted" offers dozens of recreational activities. The imposing multistory building contains within its huge walls e.g. an own gym, a concert hall and even a stage for shows and theatrical performances.
On a sunny winter day numerous interested people passing by on their way to the gym posed for ANDERSRUMportrait® in sporty outfits.
2. A schools project: Gender education with ANDERSRUMportrait®
Gender education with ANDERSRUMportrait® at US High School
ANDERSRUMportrait® was invited to "North Shore Country Day School", a private High School at a Chicago suburb, by its equality officer to present the ANDERSRUMportrait® art campaign and to discuss questions of gender and sexual identification. A vivid discussion with great contributions commenced among the students.
Artist talk with two photography classes
Additionally, an artist talk with ANDERSRUMportrait® took part in two photography classes at "North Shore Country Day School" in Chicago.
Students were able to ask everything about professional photography, job perspectives and get advice for their own art projects.
The day came to an end with a relaxed game of ANDERSRUMportrait® "matching pairs game".
