When I published an explanation about the purpose of Berlin’s pink pipes in the beginning of last year, little did I know this was a question so many people were keen to find out. The post went viral through several blogs, facebook and twitter. Then the BBC decided to do a little reportage on the … Continue reading

May Day 2013

May Day march 2013.

On May 1st this year Frank, Philipp and I joined the Maifest and had a nice time walking the streets of Kreuzberg together. Just as last year once again the folklore event was a great opportunity to do some street photography. Enjoy a selection of pictures I took this year:  

60-second slices of present // Berlin 2012

Berlin, Straße des 17. Juni

Now that 2013 has just started, I’d like to present a selection of last year’s “60-second slices of present”.

What, out of … Continue reading

New 60-second slices of present

Some time ago I introduced my idea to a conceptual series I named 60-second slices of present. What had started as an experiment about two years ago has ever since been becoming a long-term photo project. Here comes a selection of last year’s results.

Out for adventure. Finding but the trots.

Monotony – booklet publication

monotony booklet

Regardless of time or place “monotony” exposes a phenomenon hundreds of thousands of people find themselves in the midst of everyday – commuting. Being accomodated in suburbs – often huge monocultural agglomerations of apartment blocks – their residents need to be on their way to the city centre to earn a living each and every … Continue reading

Monotony – reflections on working class’s modus operandi


About two years ago I created a little set of pictures I then named every day’s drab monotony. These couple of photographs were the result of a simple idea. The plan was to get onto the first train at 4 am that would take me to the huge satellite towns far out in the east … Continue reading
