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.
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
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?
