Already at an early age I was gripped by a faszination for photography. I bought my first camera with 16, second-hand Canon AE-1. At the age of 18 I started to work in the photo studio and arranged my own small studio incl. a darkroom in my small 1-room apartment in Cologne. Since that time I focused especially on portrait black & white photography. I did a lot of experiments with double exposures and in the darkroom. From the very beginning, I was interested to explore the different facets of the humans and their interaction with the environment and with subjects.
Despite a different main field of professional activity, I followed by dream and realized a number of exciting photographic projects over the years.
Each photo is a unique story whereas I want to capture emotions and record memories of the special moments from different perspectives. Life between the cultures is the main inspiration of my photographic projects.
Creative challenges in creating an image, authenticity of the photo, symbiosis between the human being or a mannequin and its environment, space are the core of my work.
