Light on the mountain


It was a magical day. I woke up early. The night was still on. As I walked upwards on the mountain’s side, the sky started to clear up. I already knew where I wanted to witness the sunrise, high above the clouds. 

Even after the sunrise I was stunned for hours by the beautiful game of lights and the frozen forest. After I filled myself with sunshine, I walked back down into the grey ocean of clouds. Soon I was greeted by the frozen creatures of the under cloud world. It was a great day.


Cameron Highlands

I had the luck to discover this beautiful place together with my good friend, and fellow photographer Sanjitpaal Singh and his biologist wife Ravinder Kaur. Probably this is the last place what I have time to visit in Malaysia. I am heading back home soon. Good times again. Malaysia is still one of my favorite destination.

Touched by the jungle

Every time i visit a jungle i am deeply touched by it. The smells and sounds. The amount of life thriving all around me. The chaotic connection of life all around. Human mind hardly can grasp it. It touches something much deeper. Primeval state of mind. Serenity. It pulls me in. Come, stay here forever...

Zhangjiajie mountains

Zhangjiajie. Breathtaking tablemountains, what gave inspiration for so many chinese arts. Paintings and poetry.

More recently it was also the inspiration of the floating mountains in James Cameron's Avatar movie. The chinese tourist industry didn't need any more... All around the park, hotels are popping out from nowhere and the prices are skyrocketing...

The sea of bamboo

Shunan Zuhai. A vast bamboo forest near the border of Sichuan province. These bamboo forests, are one of my favorite places on Earth. You can just sit for hours, listening the wind, as it brushes the seren bamboo sea around you. Sweet smell of wet soil and leaves. Frogs, and cicadas giving concert every day. The peace in these bamboo forests is palpable. Peace of mind.

Personal (r)evolutions in photography


Lets' celebrate my new website with an overview of my photographic journey. From the beginning until now. 


In the same time I also wanted to shoot highest possible quality. But I never had the money for a medium format back, so I stayed with film. I also feel like its a more poetic medium. This is the current state. On this website you can see my recent works.

However I always try to keep in mind the only constant thing in the world, is actually change. So who knows what is next. In me, in my photography. I am waiting curiously. 


The spring has come


Finally! The real spring has arrived. Trees are sprouting, cuckoos are calling for mate and nightingales singing at night. What a beautiful life. With the spring I also started my new website. Solely for black and white photos. If you would like to see my older pictures with colors, check out my Facebook page, or my Instagram
