A wise man replied once to the question: „Who or what are we?“ “We are the sum total of everything that went before us, of all we have been seen done, of everything done to us. We are everyone everything whose being in the world affected was affected by mine. We are anything that happens after we are  gone which would not have happened if we had not come.” (Salman Rushdie)

About me

To tell anything about me…omg, this couldn’t be any more difficult; some say you have to explain, what you are doing, to make people understand, that you really love photography – Yes, of course I do!

But, to be honest, isn’t it something totally different? For me, it’s about the idea of being connected to the pictures in a specific way; the idea, that pictures give certain things back: thoughts, feelings; they are taking me on a trip, a trip that seems to be honest and pure – as if this reality is getting real; delight, pain, happiness, fear – every single emotion; everything starts to exist, starts to be as it is.

Surely, some may think: „What the hell is he talking about? Is he able to take great pictures or not?“ In some moments I am aware that this is not essential!

In the end it’s the pictures themselves pictures that present a feeling – maybe my feeling; pictures which tell something, which are taking me by the hand; and sometimes I am delighted if they take other humans by the hand, too.

If someone asks himself now:

„Is he experienced?“ I would reply:“ I’m in an age, where you give your kids money to make them tell everyone you’re 40 instead of 50“ :)…. I only have to become wise now 😉

Indeed, there are some experiences: for more than 20 years my camera has been on my side like a good friend;  my jobs guided me to various areas; whether fashion- or people-photography, I had the chance to learn and to see interesting things everywhere; but there us one thing that has been even more crucial: getting to know a lot of different people from different cultures, and the interactions with those people changed my view on life… I had the possibility to learn and to comprehend things!
