About

About me: 1. I am not a full-time photographer, I have a time-consuming day job (in fact a day and night and weekend job …). 2. However, I am not an amateur (amateurs take shitty photos and/or have stupid beards). 3. I learned photography the hard way (color slides and photochemistry are expensive and/or strong smelling). 4. I hate talking about pixels and resolutions because photo art is not coding. 5. Born and raised in Cold War West Germany, I now live and work in Berlin, because Berlin is so cool and everybody here is so cool. Get the point? 6. I am happily married to artist Janine Wolff (website soon to come).

About photography: With a billion images taken by cellphone lenses every day, photography is rapidly losing any form of artistic relevance and is just about to become a means of visual pollution, rather than being a branch of visual arts. Only a few years ago, every single photo had to be paid for and therefore demanded careful consideration. Right after the digital imaging revolution, maybe there was a kind of charm in explicitly going the new, the opposite way: Shoot ’em all, let mob sort ’em out! Today, these days are over and left us drowning in an ocean of irrelevant images, mobile-edited in pseudo-retro style or unrestrained overfed with disgusting visual effects. From that point of view, I would be happy to be recognized as an old-fashioned photographer, although I am not immune against the blessings of digital wonderland. In the end, it’s all about the photo and that you like what you see. I hope, you do.
