About me
I am a London based photographer and writer, originally from Germany. I have studied Fine Art at the Rijksakademie Amsterdam and Sheffield Hallam University.

    Faces of Mustang ‘A snapshot of a nation captured via an American classic’These images are part of the Faces of Mustang (FoM) – ‘A snapshot of a nation captured via an American classic’ project. I’ve set up FoM pages on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to share and publicise the project. I was photographer, writer, planner, organiser, art director, fundraiser, marketing director and driver and by the end of it I was very tired. A Kickstarter campaign and my credit card put me on the road in the summer of 2016 while Ford and GTB were kind enough to loan me a Mustan
