ABOUT THE WORK
Participation at the Exhibition SENSITIVE VIEWING HABITS | a preview to photo::vienna #1 (2014)

„I locate my photographic work at the interface between fashion and art, with strong attention paid to details and colour schemes. Places and structures are superimposed in order to visualise ideas

– the focus is always squarely on people. I love to collect moments, collaborate with other artists and travel on my own – it keeps the work-flow alive and broadens the mind.“
