First there was a inherited camera.

Soon after making my first experiences with the hard reality of photojournalism during my studies, i turned the focus on the already existing images to work with this amazing ressource.

So i started collecting and selecting lots of material. This leads inevitably to my profession in a renowned international picture agency (akg-images).

Working with more than 10 Million images day by day. I am sure you know what that means! I had no other choice...

My main topics are still the ubiquitous human ability to create and destroy, and the other way round. For me, collages are the perfect technique to reflect these human characteristics.
