I am a photographer, researcher and digital print maker, based in Berlin, Germany. I look at the cultural context of landscape and architecture in my photography. I am open for commissions, collaborations and book projects.

I make photographs. My subject is the cultural context of landscape and architecture. I am particularly interested in the traces we humans leave in our environment. Those are created indirectly through our global influence and at the same time directly through the local design of our surroundings. Although there are rarely any people in my photographs, they are always part of what is depicted as invisible agents.

My works are created as project series on a specific theme. My thematic focus develops in the examination of a place, whether it is a landscape, an urban area or a building. For the project work I use an ethnographic approach focused on observation. Photographs are created in the repeated photographic examination of the physical place, whereby I draw on a view trained by my studies of architecture. With the parallel research of the background of the observed landscape I can give my projects the necessary context in accompanying texts.

The outcome is a series of reflective images that approach a certain aspect of a place. I work out the photographs in my studio and often superimpose several digital files in one photograph to maintain better control over the quality of the presentation. Making my own pigment prints is an important part of my practice and up to a certain size I produce my works in signed editions myself.
