Biography

Born and raised in Germany I started to take photographs by the age of 16. Since than I abandoned photography for a long time in order to focus on other creative projects. Quite some time has past and only after getting my hands on a film camera, my motivation returned. 

I value unaltered nature the most, which is the reason why I look for the things in life that are real. Even tho if real is just a matter of perception and time a matter of semantics.



Influences

My home town was once a mining town and I still remember the time where roof tiles were often times black and the ground covered in coal dust. That's probably the reason why I like black and white images the most, aswell as grain. What also influenced me quite significantly are black and white movies like The Lighthouse (2019) or M (1931).
