As a small boy I found my safe space through a lens. I found a way to open up towards the world. After many years I noticed that the world was opening up towards me. Nobody told me what to do and I could just stay silent. Thats why I enjoy to travel and discover "through the lens". There is poetry, creative connections that runs through my work. My curiosity only grows while I walk further and further away. Just like a journalist I also have the need to understand the truth. Once home, I dive into my inventory on a daily base, to make sure I have been able to get the most out of my work.
