Born in Germany, I developed my love for photography when I was a kid. My grandma used to give me her rangefinder camera to take family pictures. That was fun!
Being a teenager, I bought my first camera and within a few years I developed the necessary technical skills for serious photography. I made a living as a typographer, graphic designer and as a digital photo retoucher… eventually documenting real life became my passion.
Coming to New York City in 2003 was a great inspiration and I started documenting every day people in the urban jungle with my Leica – I would roam the streets for hours, longing for the next great photograph. There are many different types of photography, but eventually documenting real life through street photography became my passion.
During the past few years my love for photography has grown, my work evolved and became multi-faceted, but I always stayed true to the original picture, as candid as it can be!
now, take a seat and enjoy my galleries!
