I recently traveled through Ghana and visited the Fishermen at the Port in Nungua, Accra early in the morning. This place gets busier with every hour. A great place to take photos and to feel people, their culture, their work, their life.


I have been two nights at the famous Pulverfass Cabaret in St. Pauli. I had a wonderful time spending a couple of hours with the La Grande Olivia Revue backstage, documenting the transformation and preparations, sharing an unique moment before the show. They have a big heart and a lot of love and respect for each other.

The Pursuit for Happiness – A Smile can change your World

In late 2013 I saw a documentary about Vanuatu, a country which I had never heard of before. A country that was voted twice the happiest place on earth according to the Happy Planet Index. From that moment on I knew I wanted to travel to Vanuatu to find out what it is that makes people happy.

The King
The heavy and beautifully handcrafted wooden door to a modest home in Ludwigshafen opens and The King greets me with a warm and friendly smile.

Welcoming and down to earth – Togbe Ngoryifia Cephas Kosi Bansah invites me to come in and have a coffee in his kitchen.

Circus Roncalli – Good Times

The flavor of Popcorn is blowing through the historic circus wagons – probably every other text about the visit to a circus starts with these words. I am smiling, but it is the first thing that I am sensing, too.

24 Hour Shift

A while ago I had the opportunity to join the Fire Station ‚Feuer- und Rettungswache Innenstadt‘ on their 24 hour shifts. Although I did not stay the whole 24 hours, I gained insight into the amazing work these guys do.

Shangri La Streetphotography

It is a different feeling to walk the streets of Shangri La – less touristy than Lijiang Old Town and people are actually living more in the open. More visible to people like me, wandering around to capture the daily life of people living in the city.
