Introducing Franz Grimm – “In Between Tries”

franz - inbetween tries

We would like to proudly introduce our newest columnist Franz Grimm! For those who follow our moves, Franz is no stranger, we met him last February in Paris while we were out there working on the Paris/Paname issue. In that issue, he had one of the most beautiful pictures and ever since that trip we stayed in touch. Born in Berlin, raised in Paris, an “In Between” kinda guy. Thus it felt only logical to call his column “In Between Tries”. Franz is a person who is German in France and French in Germany. I could give more examples but let’s leave something for the viewer to find out. So without further ado, we are happy to Introduce our newest columnist and column “In Between Tries” and as for this first column called “If My Mind Was A Laptop.” I will let Mr. Grimm explain that one.

A few years ago, my brother Tibor was told he looked like Evgeni Plushenko, a famous Russian figure skater. I googled the name and watched Plushenko’s footage on Youtube and I found out they do look-alike.
At first sight, I thought figure skating is really badass. Absurd skills, fluidity, creativity and speed. These performances on the ice seemed like lines in skateboarding to me: some flowing moves with tricks and rotations in between.
Anyways, a couple days back it all came back to me and this is what my mind would look like on a laptop since then.
