ABOUT ME

I am open for everything what attracts my interrest. I guess thats why I became a photojournalist. Mainly its people with special experiences. I love to lern to know new people which are living their lives in very different, special ways.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I just did a one and a half year long photography project named "couchsurfin' the world" for reporting about online hospiltality networks. Therefore I travelled with different couchsurfers in five different parts of the world to document in pictures how hospitality networks work. Check out my website for updated news about it:

The project is ment to be presented in a book. One of the images just won a prize at the world press photo awards of 2011. Check out wich one here:

Furthermore there will be an exhibition on the topic in Berlin!
The opening celebration on about 500 sqm will take place on the 5th of January 2012 @ Aufbau Gallery, Moritzplatz, Berlin, next to the first floor of "Modulor". I hope to see you guys around!
