The first seed of what would later become my passion for photography was planted during my childhood. It was in my father’s darkroom, between developer, enlarger and negatives. I remember vividly how enchanted I was. The very moment when the images would slowly appear on the photo paper was mesmerizing to my younger self.
All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.Richard Avedon
It must have been between 2010 and 2012 when I held my first own photo camera – A LUMIX GH2. Not having much money for lenses, I adapted old Canon FD lenses – 50mm 1.4 and 24mm 2.8. It was with this equipment that I gained my first experiences.

A few years later, I switched to a Nikon D800, gradually adding more lenses. A Canon AV-1 from the flea market soon opened the world of analogue photography to me. At some point, I added the Canon F-1 and the A-1. So today digital and analogue photography complement each other. Currently, I am predominantly working with a Sony A7RII.
