VIEW IN MY ROOM
The dragonboat festival in Guangzhou's old town starts with a parade of the boats navigating the canals of Liwan district, drummers playing on the boats and the teams wave their flags. They are greeted with flags and music and firecrackers. This focus is not about the cultural value, I am really not qualified to document this. It is entirely about the intensity and excitement and how I experienced this. In Black and White to emphasise this.

I am a family doctor from Germany and have lived abroad working as a physician since 2006. Previously I have lived in Vietnam, Uzbekistan and Vanuatu and now I reside and practice medicine in Guangzhou, Southern China. Over the years photography has developed into my main interest aside from medicine. In my photography I try to portrait ordinary people and everyday life, the lights, moods and colours of Asia. I do most of my shooting in and around Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Singapore- places that are full of life and energy and amazing opportunities for capturing “real life” scenes. In my photography I try express my subjective experience as a foreigner, as an alien living within an unfamiliar world. My photos are essentially mood pieces or slices of life rather than documentary or travel shots. Unfortunately I never had time for any formal training in art and photography although it has been a passion of mine for years. My interest in photography was awakened by the work of the war photographer Henri Huet. However as I prefer to avoid wars and problem zones this influence may not be obvious. The most notable influences may be from the street photographers Saul Leiter and Jay Maisel, whom I deeply admire and try to emulate.
