My passion for photography developed in a very
specific way: through the pleasure I experienced
in tinkering impetuously with camera lenses. This
cannot be called reinventing photography, but
it did shape me into the photographer I am today.
My photos are still indebted to these early days.
My "lenses project" was also the basis for my
Master’s thesis in Visual Arts in 2010. One of these
lenses was a 45mm Tilt-Shift in which the rubber
is folded in such a way on the lens that in certain
places the image loses its characteristic sharpness.
With the right subject and the right perspective,
the miniature effect quickly makes a realistic scene look orchestrated.
This year, I focused my lens on life in New York;
often from rooftops, bridges and observatories,
the best places to get a bird’s eye view of the city. Not a single photo
