Biography: As a severely addicted amateur photographer I'm glad with every incidental moment packed with my camera. With my photography I try to provide places of rest, scenes of tranquility in this turbulent world. I just like to stop the time. Therefore touches of stillness and temporality frequently return in my images. I like to capture the contrast between solid and fragile or short-term natural structures and elements. Shape and composition are major components.
