Once upon a time – after graphical work for fashion magazines in Paris – I worked in the area of commercial photography: studio work, press work, product photography. Editorial work was published in business and consumer magazines and in newspapers. At some point, I made a career move and found myself in IT business, taking me into the arteries of fabulous companies and exciting cities in Europe and the Americas. Today, technical creativity still plays a part in my life and it is a great foundation for my work as a visual artist. I have learned to let the expertises enhance eachother and to connect them to my own “wunderkammer” brain.

Topics in my photographic work you’ll see are often related to infrastructure, time and space. I like to interprete their existence and their history, and discover the balance which make them co-exist. In many cases, I shoot from the heart and in the situation as-is. “Everything is pre-destined, including my work”. But it’s not always complicated like that, sometimes a subject is just a subject, present in certain surroundings and available for notion.
