Born in Cologne, Germany, in 1977. The development of his photographic work is strongly connected with the influence of his parents: his father was a film-maker and his mother a child therapist. At the age of thirteen he followed in his father’s footsteps, picking up the camera and experimenting with all sorts of “magic tricks”. Later on he moved to London, graduating in the Theory and History of Photography from the Surrey Institute of Art and Design. He was the director of Young Photographers United; founder and director of Photodebut; and photography director of the journal Diva and the Pocko agency. In 2007 he founded the collective The photographer’s office. That same year he received the PhotoSpain award for the best book, for Dreams of Flying. In 2010 he was nominated for the Joop Swart Masterclass.
