"My diploma thesis as an illustrator was a children's book.
After graduating, I illustrated over 120 children's books, all of which were commissioned works for publishers.
I have to honestly confess: Only two of them were really drawn the way I wanted.
That's one of the reasons why I worked almost commercially only as a photographer for 20 years after that, but I only took pictures the way I myself thought was right.
In the meantime, I also illustrate from time to time again (so far exclusively my own projects).
But I rarely draw on paper anymore. Most of it is actually done on the tablet with drawing programs like Photoshop or Procreate, and again, I rely exclusively on my own style."
- the poetry of being...
A project about the dreams of grieving people.
For over twelve years I have been working as a photographer with parents who have lost their child before or shortly after birth, and for over two years I have been working on an art project for them (and with them).
In this work, over the years, I have now met well over a hundred women who have talked to me not only about the loss of their child, but also about what they dreamed of (and in some cases still dream of) in the time before and after.
I am amazed at how similar these dreams often are.
To my happy amazement, they contain not only sadness, but often comfort as well.
Sometimes it seems to me that the lost children can really talk to their mother.
I don't know if that's really the case, but wouldn't that be wonderful?
In the next few months I would like to show you here the pictures that were taken during the project and at the end also tell you what wonderful things finally came out of the project.

Older couples who have spent many years together probably know a lot about love.
By that I don't mean the love you know from a fleeting infatuation, but what happens when you grow together over many years together.
This growing together has many facets:
Some share with enthusiasm(!) a seemingly monotonous life, some experience the most exciting adventures.
If you look closely, you realize that it doesn't even matter much that all this is really experienced together(!).
Much more important are tolerance, respect for each other's needs and loving appreciation.
Couples like this don't care what other people think about them. For them, the living growth of their partnership comes first.
If they were to ask one of these loving people:
"How do they still manage to love the same person?" that person would probably answer them with a wink:
"Why? It's not the same person anymore."

- the legendary grannie gang.
Welcome to the legendary Granniegang!
Muscle-bound superheroes saving the world?
That was yesterday!
This is one gang that doesn't want to mess with individual bad guys.
These life-experienced women have realized what this world is really about:
If we want to change the world, we don't have to punch fictional criminals in the face, but actively stand up for disadvantaged people.
Often, it is women and children who are at the forefront of these people.
The Goodham Grannies want to change that.
They are an organization of globally connected women, some of whom live in nursing homes, but have formed a secret organization that meets whenever the nursing staff or strict children aren't looking.
