about ...

 

I was born in Vienna, Austria where I grew up and studied. When I was 22 years old, I went to Spain where I spent over 10 years and experienced a different way of life. In 2015 I returned to my hometown  where I currently work and live.

 

statement

I take pictures of what I see, and how I see it. As I perceive this world as a chaotic one, and my work reflects my personal interpretation, my photographs basically express disorder, confusion, overload...madness but also beauty. Beauty in it´s  obvious presence or hidden behind a veil. You can feel an aesthetic attraction - even in scary subjects.

After studying and trying out a lot of photographic genres, I found out, that experimental photography fits me the best. To express myself, I rather trust in my intuition, spontaneity and in coincidence than in technical perfection. My art is influenced by almost only painters like Kandinsky, Picasso, Miró and Dara, my father. I feel especially attracted to multiple exposure besides infrared, long term photography  and combinations of all of them. The playful use of technical means stands in stark contrast to the seriousness of the topics I choose, by which I want to catch attention as well as offer food for thought.

"The camera is my tool.Through it I give a reason to everything around it." André Kertész
