Social documentary photographer / photojournalist born in Berlin, Germany in 1987.

In early 2015 I graduated from Humboldt University of Berlin, where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Southeast Asia studies and Philosophy.

During these days I started to make my first serious photographic attempts and fell in love with visual language and expression.

After graduating my focus turned solely on photography.

Currently I am focussing on a personal longterm project about the lives and societies in  Zomia (upland Southeast Asia / China / India) entitled „Mountainland“.

Represented by Redux Pictures and available for assignments worldwide.
