A generation of dwellers, burdened and anxiety-laden, soul-searching and ever-worried, is invited to unwind for a few precious moments. We take thankful advantage of the unexpected opportunity, with relief flooding our bodies as we turn our gaze toward the horizon’s sanctum. Ah, what power lies in the calm, the slowing, the constant and the steady. Suddenly, a humanity stricken and downtrodden, with an all-encompassing, non-prescient and unshakable worry of what’s around the bend, starts to see its way again. The present, illuminated. Unforeseen inspiration is the joyful cure of any ailment

I am a fine art nature photographer based in Seattle, Washington. Originally from Germany, I have found a home in the rugged beauty of the American West by following the dusty trails of those hopeful souls before me who the West also lured with its unique promise of exploring beauty and character. That journey of finding “A Sense of Home” is the pulsating heart of my imagery, a homage to living a life of no regrets and the resolute pursuit of our dreams.
