About me

I am a visual artist and fine art photographer from Hamburg, specializing in abstract and atmospheric landscape photography of the North: Norway, Iceland, Greenland and beyond.

My artistic approach revolves around slow, conscious travel. Capturing stunning landscape photographs in the North requires patience due to the rugged terrain and unpredictable weather.

About 03

My focus is on capturing remote and rarely seen locations and perspectives.

I have always been captivated by the North. Exploring the cold, raw beauty of its landscapes has become a meditative experience for me, with photography serving as a means to preserve those fleeting memories. My personal photography projects serve as a visual journal, offering a glimpse into my imagination. It is within these moments of quiet contemplation that some of my most distinctive work originates.

During my photographic journeys, I typically spend several weeks in each location, engaging with locals and uncovering hidden spots and unique narratives. I am truly fascinated by the periphery, where people have settled amidst seemingly impenetrable landscapes. The vast expanse, dotted by remnants of civilization: abandoned houses or remains of long forgotten industries.
