About me 

Photography has been with me since I was a child. I have been trough a phase of a journalistic approach to photography. Over the last years my work became more and more abstract. Photography is a way to express the more subtle elements of life: feelings, mental states and personal as well as interpersonal struggles. I use various experimental photographic techniques like intentional camera movement and double exposure on film. Recently I started to paint on my black and white negatives. These rather unusual techniques give me the means to visualise hidden aspects of life. I deliberately use blurriness, unsharpness, dreamlike styles to express and explore different psychological states.

I was born in Germany, spent much of my adult life in China and currently live in Berlin and Beijing.
