intuitive - spiritual - exclusive
There is nothing more rewarding than creating work that is not only meaningful to you, but also brings joy to others. As a photographer, capturing moments and impressions and turning them into perfect art prints is a fulfilling task. These prints can then be hung in a special place and bring joy to others.
It is very important for me that a picture, a fine art print is not meant as an exact reproduction of what was "really" on the spot. It is about what I felt in contact with the animals and the sensations in nature, or even what I imagined.
Photography is a great way to draw attention to wildlife. It is a way to show them in their natural environment to create compassion and interest in them. With my pictures I try to convey to the viewer the precious life of each individual. The main focus of my work is to show the animals in the context of their environment.
Being in nature, observing *wildlife, being out and about in pristine landscapes are spiritual experiences for me that I want to capture and share. My concept is that the *wild animals react to my presence, they can see, hear or smell me, and then capture this spiritual moment. In doing so, it is important to me not to disturb or endanger the animals. I will follow certain rules of behavior and only observe from a safe distance. I like to portray how differently *wild animals, even of the same species, behave and how individual and remarkable each one of these creatures is.
