I am a German photographic artist living and working in Yorkshire, England.

 

My passion for photography, especially the traditional processes, started when my aunt took me to her school darkroom after photographing me and her cat on a snowy day. I was only 5 years old, but the smell of the chemicals, the red light and the magic of the photo appearing has always stayed with me.

I studied Photography and Digital Imaging at Buckinghamshire New University and graduated in 2009. I continued working as a commercial freelance photographer for a few years and learnt essential tricks of the trade from some very successful photographers.

 

I have been working at Leeds Arts University since 2011. Here, I follow my hearts desire and teach darkroom techniques to students of all ages and backgrounds.
