Social Issues, Identity, Minorities
Social documentary photographer / photojournalist born in Berlin, Germany in 1987.
In early 2015 I graduated from Humboldt University of Berlin, where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Southeast Asia studies and Philosophy.
After graduating my focus turned solely on photography.
Currently I am focussing on a personal long-term project about the lives and societies in Zomia (upland Southeast Asia / China / India) entitled „Mountainland“.
