Photography

With my photography I try to show the breathtaking diversity of nature's shapes and human's ways of life. I hope thereby I can contribute my tiniest part to mututal understanding and acceptance. This is also why I focus on motives that explain how we are all connected, no matter how far apart we might seem to life and how different we appear. Therefore my images as such might be nice, their full story, however, can be better grasped when they are viewed in the context of one of my blog posts or with an explanation. Don't hesitate to ask me about the story behind any of my pictures. Rest assured, there will be one ;-) In the future I want to shift towards photojournalism in order to improve the value of my images as tools for telling stories and for giving voice to those who find it hard to make their voice heard. See my first steps in this direction: Photostories.

What follows are some galleries showing what I consider the best images I have taken so far.

Check out my photography on 500px, SmugMug and Flickr for more :) On 500px and SmugMug you can also license and buy my pictures helping me to fund my future explorations and the creation of more beautiful images. Even though, if you consider buying or using some of my photography, please get in touch directly. Instead of donating half of the revenue to big websites, I would rather like to send it directly to the people depicted ;-)
