I am a German photographer, artist and author currently living in Seville, Spain. I lived and worked for 10 years in Egypt and seven in Turkey and hold a Master’s degree in photo design from the University of Applied Sciences in Dortmund, Germany.
I contribute regularly to international publications like GEO, and get commisioned by NGOs like Unicef, GIZ and the like. I also pursue my own photo projects, currently a long term project about artists in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya, for which I received two photography grants.
I am the author of three photo books: Coptic Life in Egypt, focusing on the religious traditions and social life of the country’s Christians; and a previously undocumented portrayal of daily life in Myanmar/Burma, Of Dung-beetle Messengers and Infamous Crickets, which was supported by a project grant from the German institution, KULTURWERK, and currently “Schuhgröße 37”, a book about women’s football in Egypt, Palestine, Turkey and Berlin.
My work is frequently shown in exhibitions internationally, in places like Kestner Museum in Hannover, HOST Gallery in London, Kreuzbergmuseum in Berlin, in several Goethe Institutes among others. I also regularly teaches photography workshops.
