As Creative Director at plainpicture, I am responsible for the photographic profile. After studying photography and film in Bielefeld/Germany I studied arts at the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg. For several years I worked as freelance Art Director and Art Buyer for different agencies. In 2001 we founded plainpicture, together with Astrid Hermann and Valentin Alscher.
plainpicture has established itself as an alternative source for photography right from the outset. With a credible and unconventional portfolio plainpicture steers away from the current photography mainstream and focuses on targeted editing to develop its ambitious and challenging collection. Through collaboration showcasing a diverse spectrum of different and individual photographic styles.
plainpicture conceives itself as an inspirational source for all creatives from the advertising, design and publishing fields by developing special collection as «Rauschen», dedicated to book jacket designers.
plainpicture has an office in Hamburg, Paris, London and New York.
