“Being born in Berlin 1986 and growing up there, as a teenager my life started to pivot on three passions and desires: travelling to please my restlessness, reading and learning to satisfy my endless curiosity and photography to observe and to expose all this visually. For me, all of them are closely related to each other and I could not imagine to do one of them without the others somehow involved in it. Most intensively I pursued my passion for photography in the last years while I was travelling through the Middle East, the Balkans, the Caucasus, Europe and South-East Asia.
My photographic work focuses on documenting human life in a globalised world’s postmodern society whose only meaning seemingly faded to the abstract idea of continuous modernization and progress. One significant common denominator of those social transition processes – urbanisation, the transformation of man-altered landscapes – arouse my main interest here. On one side, as physical hubs of worldwide networks, (mega) cities predestines a heterodox amalgam of locality and globality, of tradition and innovation, of different cultures, ethnics, religions, lifestyles etc. Social conflicts such as gentrification and marginalization accompany those developments on the other side and are expressed through the structural and architectural features of the city and its neighborhoods.”
