Born in Germany in 1982, I started my professional carrer as videographer and video editor in the age of 21 after a time of extensive journeys. In 2007, I started to study at the university of applied sciences in Hanover, Germany from where I graduated in early 2015.
Following the tradition of humanistic photojournalism, I feel strongly committed to Concerned photography and express my respect and empathy through this powerful medium. As good images take time and understanding, I like to work intensively on deeper-perspective projects to raise awareness and responsibility on specific social topics.
My work - both, single images and stories - has been published in national and international magazines such as "mare" and "stern", major newspapers and several online services.
