Entering the world of photography twenty years ago, I’ve noticed a strong change in my perception. Any kind of different moments and impressions, everything capable being captured by photography invoked the desire in me being caught and let those experiences live on. Chased by emotions and haste, like a little child exploring a totally unknown world, there wasn’t any plan or vision where this journey would go.

For the next ten years, this chase led me to countless styles and various influences. photography has become an integral part of my life, a way of expression without using any words.

Influenced by a multitude of artists and philosophical ideas, my style of photography gained focus and clarity. By reducing the content down to a certain point, I’ve started developing an intense fascination for simplicity. The point, where the true essence of an image appears, awaking deep feelings and thoughts.

While as a photographer he strengthened his skills and widened the possibilities of visual expression, he got honored multiple international photo award contests, including the title of best swiss photographer at the sony world photography awards in the year 2014.
Influenced and impressed by visual arts, martial arts and philosophy, it has become an integral part of his life to express himself through images and to make a statement in this fast moving superficial world. His photographs shall decelerate his viewer and open a moment of contemplation.
