Living in Aachen

Since 2012 I work with photography, exploring various aspects of culture and nature in our urban environment.

Before, I ran a youth art school for many years until 2016.
In addition to my work, I have always been involved with art.
At the age of 20, I already started drawing.

..."This series of photographs transported me back into 80s/90s visual culture (MTV flashed in my mind). Saturated color, chaotic compositions, and the visual disturbance from photographing a screen, all blend together to enliven a kinetic energy in the work.

A true success in your approach is conveying a sense of vibrance through both words and images. I first review portfolios without reading the supplementary text as a way to compare my own reactions with the artist's intent. Here, "color" was a keyword in my first impressions that you clearly expressed as a major point of focus through your statement. Message received!

Urban Green 

"The first thing I was drawn to with this project was the sensitivity paid to design and composition. I appreciated how your perspective of these scenes gives equal visual weight to plants and the architectural spaces they are located. This is a major strength of the work. The obvious visual commentary of how we "beautify" or adorn our structures is ironic and calls into question why we feel compelled to bring nature back into spaces we have intentionally removed nature from. (...) Your concept is strong as are your compositions."
