I have completed a master’s degree in communication studies and was a film critic before entering the world of photography. I have been writing about photography and photographers since the 1990s and have been editor-in-chief of fotoMAGAZIN in Hamburg since the beginning of this year.
fotoMAGAZIN is the oldest and most renowned photo magazine in Germany (since 1949) and it is published monthly. Once a year (in September) I produce the XXL - Fine Art - booklet fotoMAGAZIN EDITION.
A great action and adventure sports photo shatters our habits of seeing or imagining and shows us the action from a new, surprising perspective. The image is supposed to dynamically enhance the sport shown.
On how to win Red Bull Illume: "Think out of the box! Get inspired somewhere else and don't copy stuff. Go outside with your camera and try new things. And stick with it; don't get discouraged when an idea doesn't work out and the job gets frustrating."
