Travelling is my passion - photography has developed alongside. When I travel I have the leisure to wander around with an open mind observing the life around. Through my photographs I try to transmit the impression a certain place or atmosphere leaves on me  - deserted or with its people in their daily routines.


From 2014-2017 my home was in Tunisia where I had my first solo exhibition dedicated to the often neglected interior of that fascinating country in transition. After my return to Berlin, the pictures were shown in different places in Germany and a photobook was published in 2019. It can be purchased here.

 

Having the privilege to work and live in different countries, the focus of my work is travel photography, but recently I also experimented with portraits and story telling in my home town in Germany. here.
