I'm a photographer and architect from Germany, based in Brooklyn, NY.
I work with both, digital and analogue. Here on mm I'm mainly looking for models and stylists for analogue large format photography projects in wet plate collodion techniques on aluminum and glass plates. This historic process is slow and cumbersome - patience is key.
I'm not looking for commercial, outgoing, fun, crazy or upbeat but for the profound, contemplative, subtle, quiet ...
My plan is to use the photographs for submissions to art-magazines and galleries and not to sell them in the first place. To work intensively on each photograph and creating something relevant and intense is the main goal.
I'm frequently cooperating on fashion, beauty and editorial assignments with LILY QIAN, my partner in life, making art and photography.
