Statement

I grew up in Bremen, Germany, where I was trained as a classical singer from an early age. After starting my career in Europe, I moved to New York City in the late 90’s, hoping to expand my professional ambitions beyond the fairly restrictive confines of classical music. However, while performing Opera, I found myself more and more frequently drawn to photography, as a necessary outlet for my vision.

Today, I live and work in NYC, where my artistic interests lie predominantly in the endless opportunities available within the most ordinary subject matter, deconstructed, created afresh, transformed at every moment by the simple magic of light. The camera as paintbrush, endlessly pursuing the possibility of creating new realities.

My response to a visually over-saturated world that leaves little room for individual imagination is the somewhat minimalist approach to my subject matter, and the driving force in my work is a profound belief in the transformative power of abstraction and its potential to liberate the mind. 

 

Shortly after dedicating the majority of my time to photography I was a grateful recipient of the prestigious International Photography Award’s honor awards for my series “My Song in Color” and “My Song in B&W”. Followed by another IPA Award in 2010 for a single image 'untitled'.
