The sound of the camera makes the photographer happy and fuels his passion.
The 39-year-old autodidact, who has taught himself how to take pictures since 2010, manages to confront objects with an unusual view, giving them a wholly new perspective. His favourite motif? Architecture! Amazing sights!
What is the story and thoughts behind your work?
It’s about self-discovery, finding something new or to interpret it differently, change the own point of view, leaving the rhythm and the usual paths. It’s about time, places, moments, but also technology. My photography is not about showing the reality, it is always my personal subjective view.
“The reality of which we can speak is never the reality itself, but a reality designed by us.” – Werner Heisenberg (german Physician, Nobel price 1932)
What is your inspiration?
Inspiration is everywhere: the internet, television, the subway, and even in the shower. Inspiration does not necessarily need a visual component. Sometimes inspiration is noise, maybe even a smell. If I want to be inspired specifically, I look at pictures of my contacts in the relevant photo communities. I like shooting with wide-angle lenses. It compresses the center but gives you really interesting results at the outer parts of the image. In combination with a contrasty retouch, (I really like to dodge & burn,) there are often almost artificial results.
