Born in 1959 in Cologne, I graduated in astrophysics at the University of Bonn,
a doctorate in particle physics I am working as a Software Engineer. After
various changes of location in Germany and after I had spent a few years in european
and asian countries I live and work since 2009 again in
Even as a child I had an interest in photography. My first camera was
an Agfa Box with 6 x 9 cm roll film. With the first SLR
I already experimented to compose larger images called
panoramas. The results were more than poor, even though I developed the proofs in my own lab in
accordance with the panoramic conditions (Keyword: slope exposure of the photo paper).
30 years passed before I again devoted myself to this concern. With modern
software today panoramic images can be created by "stitching".
This technical progress offered me the opportunity to create views of "experienced" , but
actually "nonphotographable" (simultaneous
looking forward and back).
Still unhappy to picture an object from a single point in
space and time I started to develop a special technique of multiple exposures.
This process lasts over one year
to the first maturity and is still not finished, though already
impressive results can be reported.
My work derives from the self-imposed question: How would the
world be like, if we were able to see it from different positions in time and / or space simultaneously?
The result is not an image of something, but is itself a four-dimensional space-time bubble
and the viewer himself can and has to move himself through this maze of a virtual-real world.
And sometimes it's like an illusion of a real object, it looks like a dream image; Because it is not a reflection of something. But it consists of exactly the same reflections of something.
Or he may simply be fascinated.
