born 1968 in Mainz (Germany), ethnologist and visual anthropologist.

“The last few years my work as a photographer and visual anthropologist centers essentially on the relation between man and the sacred. I
conducted fieldwork and research in South Korea, India, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines and China. My topics are
Asian spirituality, shamanism (especially in South Korea) aesthetics of rituals and altered states of consciousness (trance, ecstasy and spirit
possession). My photography revolves around connecting and capturing the essential human spirit with the perception of an ethnologist and the
heart of an artist.”
