Neweinstein is a furry fan originally from Germany but now living in Colorado (USA). He is active in the fandom as a photographer, fursuiter and event organizer.

Involvement in the furry fandom

Neweinstein had his first contact with the furry fandom in 2009 despite his interest in certain movies and anthropomorphic animals since many years before. His real activity in the furry fandom started in July 2011 by contributing his photographic artwork on Fur Affinity.[1]

Also in the year 2011 he met furries the first time in real life at a small furmeet in Stockhom[2] during a two year period in which he lived in Sweden.

In May 2012 he was one of the main organizers for a large 2-day furmeet in Stockholm with more than 40 attendees (including 17 fursuiters) from 5 different countries.[3]

Together with Trax he started the convention NordicFuzzCon in 2013 and is one of the co-chairmen.[4]

For Eurofurence 20 (2014) and Eurofurence 21 (2015) he was running the fursuit photoshoot there as vice director together with Atkelar.

monoFURS project

Neweinstein runs a photographic project called monoFURS.[5] In this project he shoots, processes and publishes black&white portraits of fursuits. All the photos in this project are made on analog black&white film and not as converted digital color images. The typical equipment used is based on a medium format camera from Mamiya or on a Linhof large format system. All photos are scanned from the negative and published digitally.


Neweinstein's fursona Sven

Neweinstein's fursona is a snow leopard - lion hybrid character named Sven (maned snow leopard). The character itself is only roughly developed and is more designed as an avatar-like alter-ego with similar characteristics compared to his owner.

Beside his fursona he has two secondary characters: An inverted snowleopard called N'vert and one winged lion called Leonæris.[6]


Neweinstein's partial fursuit

He owns a (semi-) realistic partial suit of his fursona Sven. The suit has been built by Raereira. This fursuit had its debut at ConFuzzled 2012.

He also has a toony fullsuit of his character N'vert. This suit had been built by Templa and had its first appearance during NordicFuzzCon 2014.


Neweinstein has been attending the following conventions/meets:

Real life

In real life, Neweinstein's profession lies in the field of research and engineering. His main focus lies on materials science and semiconductor physics.

He spends a lot of time for photography. Beside his photographic activities for the furry community he also works on more general fields of photography. He really likes travelling.
