documentary filmmaking & reportage photography

I make photo or video reports, documentaries or entire documentary films for magazines, print and online media. In reportages, I try to tell stories through photos – to create images of people and a topic, a culture or a social situation and to bring them to the center of our attention. In documentaries, I focus on people and their stories. My references in documentary film. I work independently as a photographer or filmmaker on documentaries in Berlin and abroad, from the idea, the dramaturgy, the shoot, to the final cut/edit. You can find my documentary films here.
