I started to take pictures with my grandfather's camera when I was 12, developed and printed in the lab self-taught, experimented a lot also during art-school and at ICP and still enjoy using photography as a main medium. Therefor I consider myself more as an artist than a photographer. And since I'm teaching photography I still learn new ways of perception through my students, which is very inspiring as well.
My way of working with the medium is not merely a classical one, but I'm interested what lies behind the surface of a plane picture, what photography as a medium inhabits, what is possible and where the limits are.
Since photography in itself is a rather limited medium I often mix medias and explore boundaries of imaging combining digital photographs from the web with scanned cut-outs from magazines and analogue images either from my archive or found images from flee markets.
