Lives and works in Siegen, Germany. Studied art, sociology, politics and economics. He was a visiting professor of art photography at the University of Giessen. Always worked with experimental and conceptual photography, pinhole series, frame and impressions in alternative techniques, cyanotype, saltpaper and others. Seeks to find the strong visual language combined with layers of content.
He began work on European monuments in 1997, using the contact method and “Deconstructing architecture as a visual language.” The buildings appear to be esfacelarem, dancing and remind us of the vulnerability of our values and creations.
