The story behind the image
In 2006, I worked for BenQ Siemens, the joint venture between BenQ, the Taiwan electronics manufacturer, and Siemens mobile phones, the (former) German mobile phone giant. These were fun times, because the new management from Taiwan introduced new ways of working, including a general ‘can do’ attitude.
As money was tight, the PR team asked me one day to shoot a couple of images of the brand new EF81 phone with a map application on the screen. Back in 2006, this was a really cool feature. Sadly, you needed an external GPS decoder to make it work seamlessly as a sat nav.
Anyway, I agreed to do several shots, and we had a really good time. And they were quite happy with the results. 🙂
