Photo Editor for rethink GmbH. Freelance Photographer. Based in Berlin.
Video ergo sum.
New Order had just released their hit single „Blue Monday“ when I was born on a Tuesday. Some years later, I made my first attempts to take pictures of „Shiny Happy People“ with my dad’s old camera. I fell in love with photography, and when Snow Patrol were „Chasing Cars“, I finally bought my own professional camera in Tokyo. Now, countless songs and photographs later, I’m „Still in Love“.
