“ Munich, Istanbul, Rio or Venice”
When I walk through the streets with my camera, whether in Munich, Istanbul, Rio or Venice, I can switch off incredibly well and be in the moment. Do everything I can to tune out what's around me and put myself in the situations I observe. I have time to myself and time to think, organize my head and tidy up a bit. Like a retreat that is not a place, but always in motion. The camera itself literally supports me, it acts as a tool for communication, but sometimes also as a deterrent. People come towards me or deliberately turn away, this constant exchange, be it just a glance or a conversation, which develops from it, opens the door to cultures that would otherwise be closed to me.
