Vita

With my father being a photographer in his young years, cameras and stories told through images have always been a part of my life. I was creative from the start, crafting, drawing, and, finally, capturing what I saw from different points of view. My approach has always been conceptual.

Travels through India, and finally, my studies in Communication Design, including several positions as a photo assistant, led me to develop an even deeper understanding of camera, light, and motif, as well as design thinking and the principles of creation.

In this period of my life, I fell in love with the fashion world. Ever since then, I worked for international clients and magazines such as l’Officiel, Harper’s Bazaar, and Schön! and was the lucky winner of several awards.

As an expression of our time and age, I think fashion and photographs thereof are shaping society. With this in mind, I started lecturing photography in 2018 at several universities. Working with students of different fields and backgrounds is regularly giving me important points of view from future creatives.

Beyond my creative network and the fashion cosmos itself, interesting locations, rays of light, and remarkable details inspire my photography.
