Info and Contact


I am a photographer and sociologist based in Strasbourg and Berlin.

Growing up at the border of France and Germany, I was soon interested in the way people of different cultures live together and find a common place where they feel they belong. While studying Cultural Studies and Urbanism in Frankfurt (Oder) and Santiago de Chile, I started to use photography in order to investigate urban spaces and the way people use them. I am a co-editor of Berlin. Stadt. Religion (2012), a book about experimental research in religious spaces of Berlin. In 2013 I graduated from Goldsmiths, University of London, with an MA in Photography and Urban Cultures. Since 2014 I’m teaching a class in creative methods of urban research at Humboldt University in Berlin.

For my own projects I use mostly analogue film cameras (medium format and 35mm) as I like the technical part of photography and am also interested in the different processes involved in taking a picture.
