I’m a portrait and documentary photographer based in Munich, Germany. My photographic work mainly deals with socially relevant topics and social issues. People in their environment and the question of identity are at the center of my work. Currently, my research focuses on the consequences of the transformation of post-socialist countries in Eastern Europe.



From 2017-2022 I studied photography at the University of Applied Sciences in Munich and since 2024 I am attending the Masterclass at Ostkreuzschule in Berlin.
