Being a photographer mostly shooting outdoor and landscape I often find myself struggling with the consequences of my action. Not only do I and my team travel and access areas and landscapes that would be better off without us. The pictures I take make people want to go out and search for adventure and beautiful, untouched nature. Saying ‘This is a sensitive planet, nature needs to be protected, better don’t go there – but look how pretty and amazing it is!’ has never worked so far. I’m struggling to find a way to justify my actions (Haven’t found one yet) and give my work a purpose that goes beyond the obvious reasons. Any ideas welcome! So as a first step now I’m launching my long term project


*by future generations

I am starting off with a calendar for 2020 and an exhibition at Bosco Gauting opening on 21.04.2020 till 18.07.2020.
As part of the exhibition there will be a panel discussion on sustainable and responsible travel. 

In 2020 I am going to reach out to Iceland again for a documentation about sustainable trekking adventure tourism, as well as Greenland to discover how the melting inland ice is challenging the Kalaallit people and their way of life.
