Born in Leipzig in 1950 I grew up close to the mountains of Bavaria, studied in Munich and Berlin where I live until today. Kreuzberg, the part of Berlin where I have my studio, is a very vital, multicultural hood. I love this part of the town because it has many nice, small shops, restaurants and cafés and I know lots of people here. When I came to Berlin in 1976, I started to work as publisher in my own company. Later I began my career as an architectural photographer. Since the beginning of the new Millennium I emphasized more and more on art photography.
