Personal

I have always been an observer. Photography made me a reflective and analytic person too. I passionately love to create with light and in case something can be produced without Photoshop I will do so, as this is what I understand as mastery of the basics. 

Motivation

I hope to encourage people to look deeper. It seems important to me that my art affects the viewer in a positive way, because – as Richard Avedon mentioned – images of the bad, the ugly, the violating only bring up more of the same. 

When portraying scenes in the great outdoors, nature and the power of its elements lead me to recognize a bigger picture. I observe and experience the laws of nature: change and balance. Much more than showing the actual place itself my aim is to reveal this power to the viewer.“
