Into Life We Go…
I am a film photographer, writer and PhD candidate currently based in Germany. Like many people I know and treasure, I’m never content with only one project on my mind. As a photographer, I use the effects of film photography and analog cameras, combined with the digital possibilities of our globalized world. I have been working as a writer since 2011, sometimes for the academic world, sometimes companies, newspapers, charities, start-ups, magazines, artists and festivals. As a PhD candidate in the area of cognitive literature at RWTH Aachen University, I do research in the field of trauma, narratology and artistic expression. All of these projects combined make the essence of who I am and what I’m doing here.
Pirate at heart, with a rabbit soul and a mind that has difficulties combining both.
Mint & Copper is an independent website, where I publish texts and analog photography about themes and topics that I’ve been working on. That includes academic thoughts, photography tips, travel reviews – anything that triggers an inspirational idea. I hope to bring new ideas to mind about the essence of art and photography, the impact of human interaction and the substance of how our experiences shape us – and how our experiences are reflected in what we make and create.
