I'm an amateur photographer from the centre of Germany. I have pursued photography since my teenage years and landscape photography in particular for more than ten years.
I’m mostly drawn to the kind of places that people have always told stories about. Forests, mountains, moors, water. There’s always a sense of the unknown, of darkness, mystery and danger. These places can be frightening, but they are also alluring and often necessary, because they provide shelter or nourishment.
In legends, fairy tales and modern fantasy these kind of places always play a major part, sometimes even as sentient beings. Photography gives me the means to explore the relationship between humans and these fabulous places.
My intention is not a realistic portrayal, but the capture of an emotive and ephemeral moment full of mystery and mood.
