People often tell me things like: “Are you sure, you want to take a picture of me? I always look strange and ugly on photographs!” So did this young beauty. Beside that, for me, the strength of a face, the most intense feeling it may emit – you won’t get it by common faces. Therefore the strange ones are walking this earth. And therefore I love them!
My Brother Martin. I like this picture very much. Only thing I am pissed off is not having enough money to spend it on a glass and camera which puts the focus exactly where I fucking measure it. Anyway, I like it. Very
In November I planned an exhibition and together with the dear members of Schneeweißchen & Rosenrot we got supported by eyes-on and bmukk. Bad thing about is, that the choosen gallery ran out of money a few weeks ago. Now there is no space, where I can show my work. Everthing is booked out because of eyes-on. So there will be no exhibition in november. I will use the time to work it more out, to set the layout for a book and do a even bigger start the next time.
I want to give you a little something at least
It’s about one year, one life, one portrait. 2010 I had to go through some chemo therapy for the second time in my life. This time I decided to document it and with a lot of help from my dear friend and colleague Michi Mejta it worked out, somehow. Watch the Trailer to learn more about it.
Last Summer i visited my hometowns carnival and took some shots of the kids dooing what i did something like 15 Years ago. Still the same old cars still the same people. The only difference is, that both of them seem much more used now.
Shot on a Canon AE1 Programm with 50mm 1.4 on some 400 film.
I met this boy during a barbeque at a good friends home. Taking the picture was incredible easy and real. I want to thank this young man for his patience and the time he was willing to share. Thank you very much

Summertime, a beautiful lake next to my hometown and a friend of mine made me take this picture. For the first time in my life I was happy to have some mosquitos around. This one is related to my slowly growing “Personal Portraits” series.
This music video to the song “Under my Skin” from Pann Bay Bastards has been produced with no to low budget by Viral Video some time ago. We had the opportunity to shoot it in an old sugar facility. Maybe you have some fun watching it
For helping pulling the full net of some moroccan fisher men out of the water, they invited me to lunch, dinner and a couple times of drinking tea. They also gave me a lot of fish. It took me the whole day eating, to get rid of it. This one i did first. A natural beauty and very tasty.
After some time of driving along coasts and mountains I arrived again in my beloved hometown. Throughout my journey I took a couple of pictures. They are all black an white because I decided to only shot with my favorite camera and leave my electronic flagship at home to give us both some rest. In Morocco I realized, that some color films would be really really nice, because really colorful scenes just don’t look that colorful at all if you shoot them black and white. You live, you learn. The camera i had with me is a Canon AE-1 Programm with a FD 50mm / 1.4 and a FD 24mm / 2.8.
For me the essence of a character is the nature of itself. There is beauty in every person and every moment, as soon as they are allowed to be natural and real. This picture is part of a series, devoted to non manipulated beings in an everyday moment.
I met Ben at Praterstern in Vienna to go for some slack lining. As we walked, I asked for a picture. He is carrying our beer
