Curiosities

- About the make-up that Tobias used in the photo session

Tobias commented: "This was not planned…it happened since during the photo shooting of the album there was a make-up specialist who was bored since she had nothing to do…since I’m a very curious person, I checked the make-up box and suddenly there was the idea to try this out…I liked the look and wanted to keep it. Everyone around said to me that I cannot do this. I’m a person who does things especially when everybody tells me that I cannot do it, so these photos happened."
