The power of images is mighty and leaves no one unaffected. I am
pretty aware of that. Hence I am seeing my photographs first and
foremost as a document of our planet, of a culture, of a moment I
captured by the help of digital celluloid. Techniques putting a photo’s
touch with reality at risk, like tone ,apping or excessive retouching, I
am refusing categorically as they are nothing but a tool for artificial
sensationalism. Suchlike work is nothing but a computer created picture
that barely bears traces of the photography trade.
Is there a difference between McDonalds and watching photos? Well,
photos surely got fewer calories and you don't get fat when looking at
them, but nowadays, in times of the internet and digital photography,
most of the people are only consuming images like an everyday lunch
meal. As soon as they are continuing browsing/reading/whatever they are
all-too often simply throwing away what they've seen without thinking
about what they were allowed to witness without leaving their comfy
Photographically I do what I want and what I feel like. That includes
the portrayal of a person the same way like taking a finely adjusted
capture of a swimming pool inside an abandoned Soviet military base.
However my biggest passion are volcanoes, their massive power, their
creational potential plus the everlasting fight between hot and cold,
fire and ice, the death bringing forces of the earth and the ever
reviving nature. That philosophy takes me around the world, that
philosophy stands behind my photos, that is my driving force.
