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 Arts and Sciences in Dortmund, Germany.
I contribute to international publications like GEO, and get commisioned by NGOs like Unicef, GIZ and the like. I pursue my own photo projects, for which I received 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, Of Dung-beetle Messengers and Infamous Crickets, and “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. I also teach photography workshops.
