CV

All of my projects are strongly connected with personal quests and longings.

After being a magazine/corporate photographer for over three decades, LA DRIVE-BY (1996-2001) was the initial project. Shot from the car the series focused on Central and Southern Los Angeles - the city of angels and cars, the far side of happiness, its vastness and the desert in the city. WALD /forest (2009-2012) - the beginning of investigating landscape - connects with my childhood safe places - the German forest. Published 2012 by HatjeCantz with major solo shows in Germany and abroad. Followed by FLUSS  /river (2012-2015) - images on the largest European river, the Rhine focusing on stillness in motion and order in chaos. The current work BERG /mountain (2013 - ongoing) is a study of the ephemeral and solid. The images follow the idea of transformation, of merging solid presence with elemental forces. They are a meditative exploration of our relationship with landscape.
