Haiti: People with disabilities

In 2012 and 2014 I visited Haiti to document the

work of the local non-governmetal organization

L’Arche Haiti. L’Arche is engaged in social projects

for people with disabilities.

The organizations runs two rehab centers where

this very special target group finds workshops,

small schools, living quarters and a welcoming

home. The engagment of L’Arche is a major

stepstone for the acceptance of people with

disabilities in the Haitian society.


Kola-Peninsula: Life in the north

Since 2012 I visited the Kola-Peninsula three

times in order to learn about the local life

under harsh and frosty conditions.

Observing reindeer races at the festival of

the north, taking part in hard physical labour

or observing indigenous handicrafters -

every trip brought different encounters and

insights. How ever there was one linking element,

the ever present cup of tea.

Which of my photographs is my favorite? -

The one I’m going to take tomorrow.

My mission

Since 2016 I am traveling the world with my camera. Thirst for

adventure, curiosity and fun are my drivers. I am curious about

new countries, new people and new impressions. My goal is to

capture experiences and encounters lively and at the same time

respectfully.

With my pictures I would like to build bridges. Often, apparent differences

are ultimately just of little importance. A hearty laugh

and mutual interest are universal.

In my work, a look behind the scenes is important for me. This

look does not necessarily have to be directed into the distance.

Even everyday occurrences are exciting and seemingly ugly

objects and situations also have beautiful aspects. Patience, creativity, openness and careful

observation reveal undiscovered worlds and meanings. A step off of the beaten path opens up

completely new perspectives.

And who knows, maybe that is where the perfect picture of tomorrow is just waiting?
