Taking pictures is not just snapping


Photography has long ceased to be a subordinate artistic genre. When it was developed in the early 19th century, it was already serving as a quick and easy way to make a portrait instead of using a brush and paint.

Photography was also the appropriate medium for capturing a situation and thus documenting it for posterity.

The aesthetic appeal of such historical documents is undisputed.

Just this simple creation of pictures, where a picture composition is combined with a lighting situation by the artist, has inspired me from the beginning.
So it was that I took my first photo in 1975 at the age of 12. I quickly expanded my possibilities of image design by starting to develop my own films and photos. Medium format cameras with a light well complemented my desire to create a photo. Today, with digital cameras, on which you can check the finished picture before the shutter is released, this is much easier to implement.
