Photography Projects

In my artistic work, I deal with rupture and resilience.

My focus lies on the rupture in the relationship between humans and nature, and disruptions from the daily routine as a consequence of strong impacts such as pandemic, terror attack and others. And I observe the human responses, the adaptability and resilience of both, people and nature.

I use the power of photography - often with colour and blur - to draw attention to ephemerality and resurrection, to traumatic events and potential healing.

Art is particularly important in times of crisis. Art produces arguments, critical views and emotions. A positive aspect of crises is that they bring about a kind of soul searching. Artists develop their visions, feelings, questions and answers. The artistic expression develops thoughts and perspectives which help everybody understand when we cannot simply trust the world as we know it any more.

Our world started to reveal shortcomings. In this project, female artists were portrayed and interviewed to find out how they got through the crisis of the pandemic and how they grew through the difficulties.

#womenartists aims to understand the power that lies within us, no matter how hard life can be at times. Experiences, worries, hopes and ways out are shared and show that we can recharge our batteries from our intellectual and creative freedom.

The project was conceived in 2020/21 and the photos are exposed in Nuremberg in July 2022 and in Nice in Sept/Oct 2022.

Our everyday life is full of habits. And full of plastic. Habitual plastic.

Habits often run unconsciously. They are fixed points in our daily routine. Just as we often unconsciously surround ourselves with plastic and it is part of our daily routine. We don't really question our use of plastic.

I look for the everyday objects of our habits on the beaches. Each of these fascinating but also horrific objects in our everyday life has its own story. And each one reminds us that little habits can take on big dimensions.

The ecological grief I felt when I came to Morondava on the west coast of Madagascar in 2019 is huge. I found a desert with tree stumps in which a new hotel complex was built.  The local youth saw it as particularly successful and progressive, as they all passed the hotel at sunset. They do not know my solastalgia, they are understandably happy about the long-awaited development. They cannot know. And, happily, they watch the sun go down.

#notafraid is a photo report about the similarities and differences of commemoration after Islamist attacks in European cities between 2015 and 2020. Exhibitions, an illustrated book and workshops will provide insights into European sensitivities in the very different ways in which the consequences of terrorism are dealt with.

#notafraid wants to support a European position that is neither intimidated by Islamist terror nor populists.
