Hometown: Kamp-Lintfort, Germany (travelling full time for the last three years)
Capture moments that capture me
Trying to find my way. A great accurate answer, isn’t it? But it’s really the best way to describe it. My partner and I have been on the road for over three years now. We have travelled through Central Asia and China, through South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. This time was eye-opening for me and my photography, and it still is. I know, now, what I want to do, for the rest of my life. I only have to find out the best way for me to do it.
Some time at the end of July
On a trip to Elfin Lake, a beautiful mountain lake, two hours north of Vancouver
Take a frame at first light
Waking up in our car Rusty.
Shoot your favourite tree
Take a self-portrait outside
The best mirror I could find.
Shoot a space you feel creative in
The outdoors, surrounded by nature. A place where I can feel the little movement in my mind, the wave of calmness and peace, that shows a deep, instinctive familiarity. A reminiscence, not so much in your intellect, but in your body, your DNA, that this was once something, we called home. Before we withdrew ourselves into cities.
Shoot the weather
Is there something more beautiful than rain?
Photograph someone you love
Someone I love and admire for her patience. Do you know how boring it can be to travel with a landscape photographer? Or how often you hear the words “One more shot…”.
Shoot a stranger
A mother teaching her son about the fish in the water. We need more of that.
Shoot your backyard
No patio, but the view compensates for it.
Something that makes you happy
Sitting in an unknown place and reading. What a great luxury.
Shoot the contents of your bag
That’s my stuff.
Shoot the last light
Good night trees.
Shoot yourself before bed
Well, you asked for it.
