Artist Statement

Born in East Germany, my parents decided to apply for departure to West Germany when I was 13. My whole life changed. So many different impressions and experiences which enhanced my life immensely. After starting out in the portrait business over two decades ago I decided to change the course. Being out in nature and enjoying sceneries which always lead to a story was my first attempt and still is one of my favorite genres to photograph. The city, not so much different, also a landscape, that has its own character, is also one of my preferred subjects.

Through reading I discovered the beauty and art of architecture. “The Fountainhead” by Ayn Rand got me started in architectural photography. Old, new, elaborate or plain, tall or small; these constructions reflect people and their personalities. It is their artwork, their legacy. They express their personality and life in those buildings. I am using the architect’s creativity combined with my own to express what is important to me with enough room for the viewer to find his own meaning and vision.
