Born in Wiesbaden, 1984, living photography, currently in Stuttgart.
What does a picture taste like?
My pictures must have gravitation and color. Take you along into their own world.
What I love? Marginal situations, extreme cold, storm, hail, snow, rain, twilight. Enjoying chilly winds on top of the tv-tower, chasing flashes of lightning at nighttime. I like to create the feeling of being in the heart of it, yet keeping enough distance to the subject. How does an object or human being act towards its environment? Does the contemplator become the object and the lightning the subject?
Would I prefer being invisible as a photographer? I invite others to take place in my view, show them what affects me: manipulation is being created through reality itself - I just display. Try to take away what you show and point out what you are. The camera doesn’t create the picture; the picture emerges in your head.
Open your eyes. Dream.
