my art speaks where words are unable to explain
nice to meet you
Walking through the ashes of time, flaring up the dust that once was. Being aware of the energetic life that once embraced this place. A passion for abandoned places.
That moment when I feel the warmth of the sun embrace me, even on the coldest winter days. Walking towards this ‘new’ beauty who was lost and forgotten by time. This doesn’t just warm up my body, it warms up my mind. It gives a certain sensation which is incomprehensible.
A warm welcome to my website!
have to be experienced
Thinking back …… it all started back in the eighties with an innocent visit to a desolate French church. I was young, crawling through the brush and there I was. Standing in front of this desolate and decaying church.
I had no idea what I was doing at the time…..but looking back that is where I found my passion, that is where my journey begun.
Capturing the deserted, portraying a story.

The stories of the past
Narrative photography is the idea that photographs can be used to tell a story. Allen Feldman stated that “the event is not what happens. The event is that which can be narrated”. Because photography captures single discrete moments
Through the lens of my camera I’ll take you to a world that is unknown to many. A world that used to be full of life, energy and experiences, yet one that has been abandoned for decades
A world that became my Urban Art, my way to narrate, my way to capture discretely.
kings & queens
According to legend and stories from ancient times, a wooden country house owned by Count von Strawitz would have stood on this spot 500 years ago. What was later converted into a larger and larger complex, eventually into a beautiful castle.
