“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
— Aaron Siskind
The philosophy behind
When you are exploring this website and its collection of memories, impressions and stories, I hope that you will get carried away, from your daily struggle, easily. This place is meant to create a space where photography enthusiasts, travelers and story lovers come together for only one reason: to get carried away.
To me, this is also one of the reasons why I love photography so much. It carries me away as a relief of stress sometimes, it also shaped and is still shaping my senses for aesthetic and is leading me to enjoy and appreciate every single moment, more and more, as well as giving me the possibility to capture and create what I am seeing in this world.
Some of you might know, what it feels like to push the shutter of your camera after waiting a long time for the right moment, hiked hours for the spot or carried around ideas for months or years in your mind. This, for some reason, means freedom to me. It is my freedom to capture what I want, to capture it where I want and to capture it when I want, to create my own memories.
For all of you, who want to follow me on a journey through photography, traveling, story telling and thoughts about life, feel free to stay on my website, to discover it more and more, and to get in touch with me about what you want to hear and read.
