A generation of dwellers, burdened and anxiety-laden, soul-searching and ever-worried, is invited to unwind for a few precious moments. We take thankful advantage of the unexpected opportunity, with relief flooding our bodies as we turn our gaze toward the horizon’s sanctum. Ah, what power lies in the calm, the slowing, the constant and the steady.
Suddenly, a humanity stricken and downtrodden, with an all-encompassing, non-prescient and unshakable worry of what’s around the bend, starts to see its way again. The present, illuminated. Unforeseen inspiration is the joyful cure of many an ailment. Longing, searching for a more futile pace of life, it is suddenly rediscovered, the blindfold finally removed.
Hope reemerging, it is right here that we learn the lesson not how to escape from the inevitable anguish of our days, but how to live with it, and fully.

I am a fine art nature photographer based in Denver, Colorado. Originally from Germany, I have found a home in the rugged beauty of the American West by following the dusty trails of those hopeful souls before me who the West also lured with its unique promise of exploring beauty and character. That journey of finding “A Sense of Home” is the pulsating heart of my imagery, a homage to living a life of no regrets and the resolute pursuit of our dreams.
Where I grew up in Northern Germany, honesty, sincerity, grit and a down-to-earth mentality are guiding principles. These days, I take those innate traits and turn them into photographic artworks, into reflections of nature and our place within.
People from all walks of life around the world identify with finding that “Sense of Home” and have invested in my unique, timeless and intimate artworks. My award-winning images are being exhibited in galleries worldwide, including in major art hubs like Vienna, Athens and the Greater San Francisco area. They have also appeared in leading photography publications.
