I am an artist & photographer originally from Germany, now based in Zürich, Switzerland.


The term artist refers to one's urge to holistically integrate events, dimensions, perceptions and understandings into a form of expression.
The simple human and the artist are not two separate identities.
They are one and the same.
I was born in 1990 in Bonn, Germany and I have always been concerned with the question of belonging and identity. I studied at the University of Fine Arts in Saarbrücken, Germany from 2009 to 2015 and deviated from my original path of painting almost immediately. In search for a new medium to explore, I developed a practice between performance and photography, using film as my new canvas. The tedious work in the darkroom is far from a romantic experience. It is an important part of my process, providing me with non-intellectual understanding of time and honesty.
