"I'm beginning to know myself. I maybe do not exist."In this work I deal with the questions "Who am I?" and "Am I at all?"Self-portrait, 2017, Germany.

I am a photographer and visual artist from Germany. Mainly I work with self-portraiture, with different cameras and techniques, analog and digital. I am sometimes also creating collages and mixing painting with photography.

My primary focus is on subjective documentary, conceptual and fine art photography.
In various series and projects I deal with personal questions about identity, reality, perception and various forms of remembering. In the process I am expressing internal processes: The aching, disturbed and traumatized parts of life and identity are of particular importance in my work.
