I began to discover my fascination for the nature of light when I was about 12 years old. I experimented with my camera on a daily basis and started to save up for my own darkroom. Later I studied "Visual Communication" at Kassel University, with emphasis on photography and film. In 2003 I gained a scholarship in Fine Arts at Kingston University in London. My work has been published in various magazines, books and calendars since 1996, such as “Natur”, “Sterne und Weltraum”, “GEO”, “FAZ”, “Sky and Telescope” (USA), “Ciel et Espace" (France).
