Where are you living?
Stuttgart, Germany
How old you are? (if you don’t mind answering)
41
What inspires you?
Gustave Moreau, meditation and history books.
Tell me about what you do?
I’m a photographer interested in all things mystic, surreal and occult.
Actually I’m trying to take images of things that are invisible to the eye.
What’s the structure of a typical day like for you?
It depends on the weekday. From Monday to Thursday, I’m earning money with my
day job to support my photo journeys.
Friday to Sunday I spent most of the time on reading, watching out of the window and
improving my photography.
What are some of your favourite sources for information?
I’m pretty old school … besides some online-magazines, mainly museums and
libraries.
How does social media influence your life?
I like to use social media. Nevertheless I appreciate the approach of American author
Jonathan Franzen. Social media should serve us to start conversations in real life
and widen our perspective. Not to replace it with some kind of digital mirror, where
we constantly stare at ourselves.
