Photos Dawin Meckel, Agency Ostkreuz, Berlin



The publishing company Bauer Verlag founded the magazine Horizonte with the intention to create a cultural, science, global magazine as a rival to top dogs in that area namely National Geographic and Geo. The first (and last) titles where sold out and published stories from famous writers Umberto Eco and Salmon Rushdie among others. Matthias Held created the concept, produced and wrote the story “Goldgräber am Rande der Wildnis”, a portrait about convicts on the run who are hiding out at the boarder of Alaska and Canada searching for gold. Darwin Meckel from famed agency Ostkreuz, Berlin created the photos.
