Fashion close-up, yet challenging conventional perceptions, outflanking limitations to raze sociocritical topics and find new approaches to existing themes.

After a serious accident as a child, the three – year old had lost the courage to speak and had to struggle as an outsider for years. During this time he found sanctuary by interpreting cloud pictures, their endless variability giving him space to dream. His father gave him a camera for his 12th birthday so he could preserve the impermanence of these impressions. From this time on he compensated his lack of words by pictures and thus developed his personal mode of expression. His images are characterised by technical aspect, exerted control, balancing subjects and surroundings that gives his work harmony. This he combines with creativity as an infinite process, presenting the facets of objects and making their imperceptible structures visible to the eye. In realising his concepts he is striving for new unconventional interfaces of different media in order to bring perfection to his work.
