straight photography with a personal view // long-term photographic documentations, reflection on social identities within the private and public spheres. My artistic documentary photography develops in tension between commissioned and independent productions in the contexts of media and art. It is connected to the question of the individuality of a human being. It explores the relationship between the individual presenting his / her personality and the society to which he / she presents it.
My photography primarily intends to translate an individual impulse on life into images.
Working with photography's ability to document, I transform views and impressions
which I perceive into single photographs that aim to reflect on universal human
experiences through a sequenced accumulation. The significance of each image is
the result of a long-term working process.
