Grown up in the sixties in a small town in the Lower Rhine Area, he has been influenced by the Lower Rhine landscape and also by industrial heritage and architectural diversity. This affected previously his work as painter. Later on, with the coming of the digital age, he swapped back to photography, which he had performed occasionally before with analogue cameras alongside the painting.
His main topics are expressive and high-quality photographic images out of the subjects architecture, landscape from many different countries and derelict industrial heritage.
He was successful in taking part in several competitions, of which is outstanding the participation to the renowned Sony World Photography Awards as a finalist in the category “Architecture”.
His works often do not correspond with the apprehended reality, his aim is to reveal the mysterious, not tangible. Digital image processing is his way to visualize this layer of perception and to raise emotions.
