I'm born in 1974 in a small town in southwest Germany. I'm married and have two daughters. With the birth of my oldest daughter I started taking photographs. Since 2004 I'm working only with film and mostly mechanical cameras. My work is autobiographical and intuitive. I try to investigate the force and meaning of the photographed image and my personal connection to people, places and my surroundings. I see my work as a search for my own view on life.
