I am interested in artistic photography of people, places and landscapes. During my travels, I collect moments, impressions and notes which form a series of my photographs. An important thread in my photographs is the relationship between man, environment and technology, whereby the environment is to be understood as a space that includes the urban and suburban areas. The strong influence of man on the landscape, technological dependence and desolation in a modern urban world is my favourite artistic research topic.

You can also meet me in Berlin theatres, art galleries, concerts and other events with my photo camera. Among others, I did photo projects in Komische Oper Berlin, Abgeordnetenhaus Berlin, Volksbühne Berlin, Heimathafen Neukölln, LAS Light Art Space, Kraftwerk Berlin,  Axica Berlin, Artist Homes and others. 
Currently, I cooperate with EXBERLINER magazine.
