"When I Grow Up" is the main title of this long term projekt - shooting with Tabea and Timon the two kids from our neighbourhood ( and our dogs). We started this wonderful project during 1st lockdown in April 2020 and it grew into something that was so much fun and excxiting for all of us! For this image we had a permission for shooting in an old train in Wiesbaden, Germany, where we spent a great time all together.

I started photography in 1994,with a Nikon FG 20.I loved textures, lines and geometry.I also trained other skills like painting, silkprint,collage.In 2009 with my first Digital Camera and my little dog Molly,I started with Photography again,but I had to learn that it was difficult to bring a story into an image.Until today,I prefer the mood in images.Every good Photographer knows his gear very well and there is some technical perfection in every good shot.But what really hits me is the creativity,spirit and a certain mood of an image even if it is not perfect.That's what drives me until today.
