About

I’m a young author and photojournalist from Germany, and based in Hanover. Having picked up my camera in 2006 to mainly shoot concerts, I developed a love for available light photography which stuck with me when I shifted towards more general news and documentary photography. I got a Bachelor’s degree in Chinese Studies, Islamic Culture and Arabic from the University of Münster in 2014 and am finished my Master’s degree in Middle Eastern Studies at Lund University in 2016. Since then I started studying photojournalism and documentary photography in Hanover.

Photos and texts of mine have been published and used by: Abifestival, Allianz Kulturstiftung, dpa, EL Kurier, EMCO, EMP, Festivalguide, KATAG, Lingener Tagespost, Meppener Tagespost, Pålså Ängsblad, politikorange, Semesterspiegel, Stern VIEW, Tidningen Lundagård, Utrikesperspektiv

Don’t hesitate to contact me for any kind of inquiries.
