The photos visualise the development of the relationship between my adult daughter and me. Due to the corona crisis we had the possibility to spend the longest time together after almost 8 years, as my daughter usually lives in England and I live in Germany.

The crisis turned out to be a case of luck for our relationship as we now have enough time to experience the development of the other again, and that in real time and not just virtually via digital communication.

I have been a freelense photographer for over 25 years.
Photography has given me a good life, valuable encounters with people and places that I would never have known without this profession.
