With 12 or 13 I got from my parents a simple Agfa photo camera with built-in lens. Since that time I have been photographing. In the 80 years I worked as a photojournalist for different publishing houses (Herrhausen, Schleyer, Berlin Wallfall, Kurdish refugees in Germany). Later as a photographer for various advertising agencies. Today, as an artist, I relate my work to the times in which I live and also document them photographically (example "mensch. not wanted" - example "transformation" - example "escape children" - example "nueva esparta / venezuela").
