Über mich / About me

 

I am a self-taught photographer (born in 1953) and living in Ratingen, a neighboring city of Duesseldorf (Germany).  Photography is my passion since 2011. With my mostly minimalist photographs, I try to focus especially on shapes, colors and structures. I also try to find and create art in our everyday surroundings.
Several of my pictures were awarded at national and international Photo awards. For example:   

Sony World Photography Awards 2021 London, Open category winner "architecture"; shortlisted "object" and "architecture"

Ich bin Autodidakt (geb. 1953) und lebe in Ratingen, einer Nachbarstadt von Düsseldorf. Fotografie ist seit 2011 meine Leidenschaft. Mit meinen zumeist minimalistisch ausgerichteten Bildern möchte ich insbesondere Strukturen, Formen und Farben im urbanen Raum festhalten. Ich versuche auch, Kunst in unserem alltäglichen Umfeld zu finden und zu kreieren.

 

Zahlreiche meiner Bilder wurden bei nationalen und internationalen Fotopreisen ausgezeichnet
