The feeling of Nostalgia crashes down upon me with an unpleasant force. \r<\/p><p>All my life, I have been someone, that bloomed the most in situations, which had a lack of familiarity, a lack of certainty. Being solitaire within such an environment, my emotional perception was always the strongest.\r<\/p><p>I thought, I recognized the back of your head up north in town. While strolling through the night, my stay here feels fragile but irretrievable at the same time. Every night as I come home, I cling to the memories that never existed.

I may never get back, this free unattached feeling of solitude.

He is currently studying photography (BA) at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Dortmund. In his work, he seeks to use photographic images as a visual-lyrical language that negotiates primarily emotional states, existential questions, and elemental experiences. In his photographs, which are usually neither time nor place bound, his work moves non-linearly through imaginative worlds and attempts to create clusters of contradictions. Using associative imagery, he targets the viewer's subconscious perception to create an individual link to his or her own world of thought. Guided by uncertainty, the question arises again and again under which conditions the author needs his images to process experiences and emotions and in which relationship the recipient relates to what he sees. His photographic works have been shown among others at the Rencontres d'Arles, the Biennale of Contemporary Arts Dortmund and the K\u00fcnstlerhaus Dortmund. He was nominated for the Portfolio Prize of the Imago Lisboa Photo Festival 2021 and is currently nominated for the Kassel Dummy Award 2022.
