Soon midsummer will come in Scandinavia. I have been in Finland a week ago where midsummer announces itself. The sunsets take longer, the light is warm and the mood is easy. I love it.

A flight to Tenerife and back is as climate-damaging as a year’s driving a car.
These residences are located at the main road leading out of Bielefeld. On the other hand, visitors who are returning or passing through are given a broad impression of the East Westphalian, civic comfort and are attracted to this place.

I produced a clip for UNICEF Germany. My mate and collegue cinematographer Daniel Gerlich shot it with Topmodel Eva Padberg in Iraq on the Sony A7S Mark II and I had the pleasure to cut and colorgrade it. Eva Padberg is good will ambassador for UNICEF.
I am working on a serious and dedicated photographic portrait of the Baltic Sea. The Baltic Sea is a small and young ocean which arose 10.000 years ago. It extends from Germany to Finland, Sweden and Russia. The Baltic Sea is very popular with tourists who love sailing, swimming or eating fresh seafood. But there is also an unpopular story about it. The sea is quite polluted and carries some irregular and critical cargo since it is surrounded by highly industrialized countries. I want to tell a story of the hidden dangers and secret dumping grounds in the Baltic Sea. A story of human beings who didn´t and don´t care about questioning their habits in order to preserve wildlife and nature. How can we forget about it? Because the trash is invisible. It is hidden in the sea. Out of sight, out of mind. I want to show what people do not like to see. But I won´t dive to muddy grounds or slippery caves. I stay on the surface at the coast and watch out for a special picture. A picture in your mind.
