About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Combine my passion for science with my passion for photography and design

ABOUT ME

I'm a chemistry grad student at Cornell University. The way how I like to get to know cultures and people is by eating together and trying new food, that's why I pay a lot of attention and money to food when I am traveling. I probably would rather sleep in a car and get an amazing dinner than sleeping in a Hotel and having a fast food dinner.
Besides that I experience the world through my camera. I usually have my camera on me! I used to take photos of architecture and urban-scapes, now I'm getting more and more into portraiture and experimental photography.
My favorite photographers are the German snapshot people like Juergen Teller and Martin Stoebich, the Düsseldorf School, i.e. Thomas Ruff, and the Japanese school around Nobuyoshi Araki and Daido Moriyama.

I love architecture and to hang out in cafes reading or talking about all kind of things.

I could add much more, but I suggest you should find out yourself.

PHILOSOPHY

Mens agitat molem (The mind moves matter)
