Shaped by my first 2 important men in my early years
My father was a painter and painted all his life. He taught me to „look closely“ on various occasions in company with other people, but also in nature or wherever.
It was through him that I received the gift of seeing many things that remain hidden from others. In addition, he sensitized me to the “right” view of a motif, so that I can quickly decide whether this or that makes any sense at all to be captured photographically.
My grandfather, who ironically called himself “the most beautiful man in the world”, passed me on the propensity for fantasy. He tirelessly showed me the diversity of nature during extensive walks in the summer holidays in the country side, so that not only pictures but also a variety of smells in and around the summer villa remain indelibly in my memory. Apart from that he was great shokes at telling wondrous adventurous stories, which i as a child in my near surroundings always tried to realize by means of sensory impressions.
