Profile

My pho­to­graphs cap­ture mo­ments in the lives of un­der­priv­i­leged peo­ple in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries. I strive to com­bine the aes­thet­ics and ex­pres­sive pow­er of pho­tog­ra­phy with the goal of lett­ing the world know about so­cial, ecol­o­gi­cal and eco­nom­ic in­jus­ti­ces.

Since 2005 I have pro­duced proj­ect doc­u­men­ta­tions and re­port­ag­es on so­cial and ecol­o­gi­cal themes in ­Af­ri­ca, Asia and La­tin Amer­i­ca. My cli­ents are aid or­ga­ni­sa­tions and so­cial­ly con­cerned me­dia.

As a ge­og­ra­phy grad­u­ate with a spe­cial fo­cus on de­vel­op­ment ge­og­ra­phy and a for­mer aid work­er in Pa­ki­stan and Af­ghan­i­stan, I am par­tic­u­lar­ly fa­mil­iar with this field.

Together with the Journalist Sandra Weiss I am running the cross-media agency Weko Media. We produce features about social topics in Latin America. Besides photos and text we include cross-media tools such as audio, video and webdesign to tell our stories. We got nominated for the renomated german Grimme Online-Award 2015 for our feature about reconstruction in Haiti after the earthquake: "Auf­er­stan­den als Ru­ine - Ge­win­ner und Ver­lie­rer des Wie­der­auf­baus in Haiti".

If you have fur­ther ques­tions, are in­ter­est­ed in work­ing with me, or would like to com­mis­sion pho­to­graphs, please con­tact me via e-mail. I would be hap­py to hear from you.
