I was born in 1967 in Iserlohn/Germany) and studied Fine Arts at the academy in Enschede/NL. From 2004 onward I continued my education in documentary photography at the Fotoacademie Amsterdam. Today I am freelance photographer living with in Delft/The Netherlands.
I am dedicated primarily to long-term documentary projects and contemporary historical issues as well as genocide and the consequences of war. I have worked as a photographer on long-term projects in countries such as Bosnia, Russia, Lithuania and Rwanda. I published four photo books so far.
