I am fascinated with Surf Culture. Although there is a competitive element to surfing, my focus is on the soul in surfing. The meditative aspect: the escape, a surreal feeling of joy, and an opportunity to become “one with nature”.
Poolside – A hommage to the West Coast lifestyle in the ’60s…an idyllic world of leisure, bright light, and utopian spaces in which it seems it will be afternoon forever, everybody will be beautiful and nobody will need to work.
In the Nineties, in pre-digital times, I was experimenting with infrared film. One of the few possibilities to create surreal images in-camera, as photoshop was not yet on the horizon.
The images in the series Magic Carpets originate from a light sculpture I create by placing LED strips along the signature lines of iconic cars to generate these mysterious, transparent repetitions, which then as a whole create a new, phantom-like car- built of light.
This image is from the series Big Skies, which is an ongoing series of seascapes focusing on the sea and its horizon as a motif.

During my career, I had the opportunity to work with a variety of celebrities. Almost without exception, these were very delightful and memorable encounters.
The images in the series Phantom Cars originate from a light sculpture I create by placing LED strips along the signature lines of iconic cars. Cars like the Lamborghini Miura epitomized the glamour and excitement of the Swinging Sixties. They were the cars of choice for the international jet set, movie and rock stars alike, and the stuff of dreams for a generation.
In the series ‘Me, Myself & I’, I explore the more private and quiet spaces where people enjoy the freedom to slip into other, uncontrolled identities, or hidden facets of their personalities that do not conform to the social norms of society.
Last summer, I decided to revisit the iconic sites of New York to capture these scenes in a new, unseen way. I set out on an overcast morning and photographed this series throughout the course of the day.
In this video, I share how I shifted my creative focus to explore new possibilities within abstract photography. After years in big productions with increasing dependence on circumstance and personnel, I longed for simplicity in the work process. I found this in my new and intuitive way to be creative with the camera – Jazz with a Camera!
