As a self-styled Visual Arthropologist I'm on the subjective path of documenting my life, travels and environment in a creative approach through analogue photography.

After several studies and living experiences across Europe, I found myself to be an artist with anthropological background, settled down in the vibrant city of Berlin.

I fell in love with old soviet cameras, the same I got a huge interest in DDR cameras. Probably it's a nostalgic feeling towards family roots because I was born in DDR and my wife in the Soviet Union. We are the descendants of these no longer existing countries - a lost generation. But I want to keep something of this past life alive through using those cameras.

Analogue Photography, for me especially Lomography, offers the opportunity to catch the moment in a very special way - you can manually manupilate the camera, film, developing process etc. With this I like to preserve and present my own perception of the world and document through my photographic/artistic approach the nowadays life, culture, architecture, nature, etc. - and either display sometimes the "reality" or, like in most cases, my own world - my own universe - the universe I see through the lens, the universe I create, which I create with every single action and modification I do with my hands, the materials and the camera.

I'm on the way to develop and improve my style in "Visual Arthropology" (Visual Anthropology + Art), an artistic way of a storytelling, documenting, photographic diary of my environment, travels, experiences and observations - sometimes complemented with articles, too.

Furthermore I'm an active member of the analogueNOW! Team who organizes the analogueNOW! Festival in Berlin.
