Vita

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 Cologne.
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 object.
Or he may simply be fascinated.
