"Stranded" series is an homage to the balance between humans and nature. The individual pictures symbolize the four elements of life: water, air, fire and earth. The way of storytelling is inspired by philosophical and psychological topics. A protagonist is the focus, embodying the connection between the soul (inner world) and the outer world in a metaphorical and otherworldly sense. This series was taken in the lava landscape in Iceland. The model is Melanie Gaydos.

I’m a fine art photographer based in Germany. My ways of storytelling and imagery move between surreal and mystical worlds unfurling in cinematic and dystopic themes. My imagery is often inspired by philosophical and psychological topics. A protagonist is the focus in most of my works, embodying the connection between the soul (inner world) and the outer world in a metaphorical and otherwordly sense. Light plays an important role in my imagery. Sometimes I use it very subtly inspired by the old masters or I use dramatic cinematic light. I prefer to work with available light.
