I am a visual artist and fine art photographer from Hamburg, specializing in abstract and atmospheric landscape photography of the North: Norway, Iceland, Greenland and beyond.
My artistic approach revolves around slow, conscious travel. Capturing stunning landscape photographs in the North requires patience due to the rugged terrain and unpredictable weather.
I have always been captivated by the North. Exploring the cold, raw beauty of its landscapes has become a meditative experience for me, with photography serving as a means to preserve those fleeting memories. My personal photography projects serve as a visual journal, offering a glimpse into my imagination. It is within these moments of quiet contemplation that some of my most distinctive work originates.
For me, landscape photography is not about capturing sunrises and sunsets, but rather about revealing the raw and powerful essence of nature and its abstract details that often remain hidden at first glance.
My focus is on capturing remote and rarely seen locations and perspectives.
During my photographic journeys, I typically spend several weeks in each location, engaging with locals and uncovering hidden spots and unique narratives. I am truly fascinated by the periphery, where people have settled amidst seemingly impenetrable landscapes. The vast expanse, dotted by remnants of civilization: abandoned houses or remains of long forgotten industries.
The stark contrast between the natural and human-altered landscape - surreal and mesmerizing.
I have worked with numerous companies and agencies from around the globe, including Apple, AETHER Apparel, Atlantic Airways, Bosch, British Museum, Desenio, German Maritime Museum, GQ China, HTC, Icelandair, Møblér, Ogilvy & Mather, Patagonia, Penguin Books, Radisson Blu Hotels, Visit Faroe Islands, Weber Grills and Xiaomi.
