The consciousness about ourselves is based on experiences and memories of certain moments in our lifetime. But those moments and their recollections are fleeting. With a photograph I can save them in a single frame, to remember and to share. It’s a way for me, to show somebody else, what I’ve seen and how I’ve seen, like telling stories without words. I’m still working on it.
In 2014 I discovered street photography as an exiting and versatile genre of art. From that point on I’ve seen scenes of daily life literally in another light. I try to capture and turn them into little pieces of art.
I don’t call myself a photographer, this term is reserved for the professionals. It’s like playing piano, what doesn’t mean, I’m already a pianist. I take it seriously, nevertheless I do photography for the love of it, for the fun, for myself. I take pictures or as we say in German, I make pictures, process and share them, that’s all.
