I am a Berlin-based photographer from Germany and in my conceptual as well as documentary work I focus on the exploration of human boundaries and environmental phenomena with an emphasis on the Nordic and Polar regions (especially Iceland and Greenland) and particular regards to climate change.

2014 - Prix OBLICK, 2013 - gute aussichten – new german photography 2013/2014
New ice crystal formation below the surface of the Greenland Ice Sheet.
The photo was taken during an international scientific expedition to analyze the earth´s history of its previous 130,000 years.
Extract of a dark-light line-scan of a 3,000 meter long ice core dating back more than 125,000 years in time.
The image shows bubbles of air that are conserving the atmosphere of the past over thousands of years and the deformation of the ice under high pressure in the deeper areas of the ice sheet.
The image has been created with support by Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany and is part of my longterm project It´s All WHITE.
A large iceberg is floating in Jakobshavn Isbrae, the fastest moving glacier in the world, in Greenland.
Located north of the Arctic Circle, this place seems so far off from the rest of the world. Yet, the effects of climate change are first felt here and in return will have a worldwide impact on sea-level rise due to the increased melting of the glacier.
The image is part of my longterm work Where the Air Smells Like a Thousand Years Ago, which is currently in progress.
