photographer I became a photographer because of a good friend of mine. My plans to go to France as an au pair failed, so I asked her advice. Become a photographer ! she answered. And she was right. It was soon clear to me that I would become a stillife photographer. Until today I love everything about it. I love objects, light, colour, composition, texture, teamwork and timing. The concentration of everybodies energy on the decisive point, knowing when it feels right, fascinates me. I like the sound of the shutter and the flash. I like to work with silent daylight, soft and crisp at the same time. Everyone must be present and decisive. I like to work in a huge dark studio, the light from the HMI’s pointed on our set as if it would be the only thing that matters. I work, live and travel between Paris, Milan and Germany. I like airports, being nomad, discovering, communication, design, exhibitions, minimalism, fashion, small things, food, family, friends, the desert, the sea, the horizon, simplicity and every colour. I love being a photographer.
