Born and raised in rural southern Germany in the 1980s, I have been living and working in London for the past 15 years. My first contact with photography was through my dad and grandad, both photography enthusiasts, who documented everyday life in the communities close to them.

A friend once said “You are not a street photographer, you take photograph of streets.” I am interested in the street as social space and the individuals and groups shaping it. Public spaces and their communities, often transcultural in nature, are increasingly threatened by gentrification and marginalisation.

Working collectively and collaboratively is as important to me as documenting public space in the city of today. My practice is characterised by community engagement linking documentary photography with social exchanges and dialogue. These activities feed into public interventions, workshops, events, community records, exhibitions and publishing.

I currently divide my time between art projects, photography and archiving commissions and facilitating workshops, often working with social enterprises, charities and cultural organisations. Most recently I have facilitated workshops with Chat’s Palace Art Centre in Hackney, the University of East London and Interaction Leipzig. My work has been exhibited internationally and my photographs have appeared in Time Out, The Sunday Times and The Guardian. The Ridley Road Market book project was nominated for the European Art Graduate’s StartPoint Prize 2018.
