Biography

 

I was born and grew up in Germany's Ruhrgebiet - once the country's industrial heart. When I was 25, I relocated to Australia and am currently based in Melbourne. Coming from a story of movement, I am interested in our physical and emotional connection to place, and our relationship to environment. Based in still photography and the moving image, a lot of my work is an inquiry into these themes and has at its core the idea of returning to things. 

I regularly exhibit my work in solo and group shows both nationally and internationally. In July 2016, I launched my first book Astres Noirs [published by Chose Commune] at Le Bal, Paris. I have won a number of awards including the Conscientious Portoflio Prize and the Daylight Photo Award.

I am a former Editor of the Australian PhotoJournalist Magazine and currently lecture at Photography Studies College, Melbourne.
