Friends of Friends: international online interview magazine

The German website Freunde von Freunden (FvF), which means “friends of friends” in English, is an international online interview magazine that portrays people of diverse creative and cultural backgrounds in their homes and within their daily working environments.

The magazine was launched in October 2009. In the beginning they literally worked with close friends and asked them if they want to recommend another friend. FvF’s focus is “on individuals who are inspiring and have a passion.” Over the years, the website gathered hundreds of interviews from passionate, authentic people from all over the world.

Reading about their lives and motivations is always a great source of inspiration and the photo series, which come along with all interviews, characterize these people and their homes in a very non-verbal and illustrative way.

About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
