Plants, flowers, macro work, some landscapes and also abstract-experimental photography on nature subjects. Pictures taken in the field as well as in my 'kitchen studio'. Mostly color photography but also some black-and-whites. The nature collection is not very big at the time but still growing. If you are looking for animals, please visit Animals & Wildlife on this site.
Living in a big city is not the best way to operate wildlife photography. But from time to time I use to get out of my living room for shooting some small-animal macros or a visit in the local zoo. A little bit more real wildlife is stored in a gallery with photos from a journey through Sri Lankan national parks I have made a few years ago.
'Urban & Cityscapes' means urban life, street photography and architectural photographs. Things that can be seen in places, were people live. There is no special concept, just a mixed selection. Most of the photographs have been and are taken in my hometown. Especially for people not coming from Germany, it might be interesting to have a look here. Color and black-and-white photography.
This is a very personal project. In the 1990s I have been experimenting with pinhole photography and self build 'camera obscuras' made of small film-cartriges, cakeboxes and postal parcels. Film developing and printing was done in my 'bathroom lab'. Times have changed and having a regular job time has gotten shorter and shorter and I have closed my personal darkroom years ago. But the idea of a 'pinhole camera project' showing places of my hometown Bielefeld from a personal point of view remained. So this is digital work now and it might be not everyones taste...
Pictures from outside of Germany. A little bit of Europe and much more from different asian countries. India, Vietnam, the Philippines and Sri Lanka at the time. Hopefully more to come. All photos have been taken on personal private journeys. A mix of color and black-and-white photographs.
