The challenge is, to find your niche

My fascination lies in the relationship between humankind and nature, climate change, and the footprint we as humans are leaving behind on our planet. In my artistic practice, I attempt to build a bridge between sustainability and art. I want to engage people by visually acquainting them with subjects that are difficult to understand, but are nevertheless ubiquitous. My field of interest is the biggest global problem of the moment: climate change. I try to teach people in an intuitive way by inviting my audience to enter a photographic world where different aspects of climate change are displayed, sometimes as plain facts, sometimes in a poetic way. I try to communicate in a stimulating and not so much of a condescending manner. My work is future-oriented because however I depict negative climate oriented change, I also focus on the positive impact that people could have on this global phenomenon. I think retaining a positive world view is essential in order to envision a constructive and sanguine future. My work is the ideal combination of culture, art and politically relevant issues. People tend to turn a blind eye to climate change, but I am convinced that this subject belongs on the artistic agenda.
