Human, female photographer based in Bielefeld, Germany and the presents.
Currently I explore phototheory as source for my visual practice. Which means I read a lot of thoughts other people had about photography. The words evoke ideas on how I can experience photography in a different way. The output are rarely classical photographs but rather performative experiments.
My applied (magazine-) projects are based on a journalistic approach. Typically I get as close as possible into communities with an alternative lifestyle, spending time and living with them. To convey atmosphere and emotions into photographs the light, colors and materiality are important to my photographic style. To reflect the role of the medium and myself as a photographer I combine (personal) text with the images in artists' books and exhibitions.
