I bought my first mirrorless camera (a Samsung NX300) in 2014 but for three years, I had no clear idea of what to photograph. In early 2017, a friend of mine posted a portrait of a girl carrying a mannequin on her Instagram. She had met the girl in the city and took only one shot of her. This portrait appealed to me much more than all her other - more staged - portraits.
I asked myself how this kind of photography might be called and suddenly the term 'street photography' popped up in my head. When I googled it I saw all the stunning pictures of the genre and instantly knew what I wanted to do...
I started to do some black and white pictures. But in May 2017, I went on a trip to New York City. Since I wanted to catch the unique colours of the city I turned to colour photography and I sticked to this focus since.
I am based in Düsseldorf and many of my pictures are made here. Apart from my hometown so far I also enjoyed photographing in Hamburg, Berlin, London, NYC, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Bangkok and Chiang Mai.
