When and how do you start to create?

I blame it on the little plastic toy camera my grandpa gave to me as a present when I was about 10 years old. I remember my first photo beeing a view from our balcony onto the snowcovered fields of Bielefeld...


How do you learn and work your skill?

Everyday practice... learn from others..


What are your favourite subject(s)?

Landscapes, Cityscapes - in general I'm into sparse and minimalistic photography. I like bad weather, fog and so on. Helps to keep pictures simple.


What are your prefered moment(s) when you create?

I take photos all times of day but I especially like the hours just before dawn.


What are you trying to share via your art?

Most of the time a certain feeling of melancholy I guess.


Who are artists that fascinate or give you inspiration? (links)

Too many to mention!


What equipment and/or technic do you use?

I use analogue and digital cameras in medium and 35mm format, Nikon F801, Nikon F301, Holga 120, Hasselblad 500C, Nikon D80. Often tripod, almost never flash. I do prints in my own darkroom.


What are your plans in the future?

Take part in exhibitions, create new work.
