About

At my documentary photography work, I deal with places and spaces that have a social function.
I am interested in the interaction between people and the places that describe them.

Commisioned I have my main focus on architecture, editorial & reproduction photography from exhibitions, contemporary artworks, postproduction for web media and pre-press for art catalogues.
