Madeira is a Portuguese island in the Atlantic Ocean, a few hundred miles off the African cost. This is a small gallery with black and white pictures from the 1990s. Analoge work.


Both photographs are showing the same flower. The first one fresh and blooming, the second one a week later. Arranged and shot on my kitchen table in March 2009.

'Kunsthalle' (Museum of Fine Arts) and replica of 'Final Wooden House' by the Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto. The original building is located in Japan close to the city of Kumamoto. Since 2012 an artist authorized scale true replica is part of the sculpture park in front of the 'Kunsthalle' (Bielefeld).

I have been traveling India several times between 1995 and 2005. Most of the photos are analoge work on negativ film and color slides. Only a very few are converted to digital files at the time. Here is a selection of black and white photographs.

Most small school children won't know their school like this. And don't want to. It's the entrance gate of the 'Fröbelschule', a primary school in Bielefeld (Germany). Analoge work shot on a winters night, heavily pushed in the darkroom and digital processed.

The island of Sri Lanka, located in the Indian Ocean close to the Indian mainland, is famous for its beautiful beaches, tropical landscapes and the nice people living there. A holiday paradise. Less known is, that large areas of the country are designated as protected areas and national parks - seen in relation to the land area, much more than in most western countries. I had the opportunity to visit a few of the many interesting nature spots including Talangama Wetlands, Wasgamuwa National Park, Uda Walawe National Park, Ruhunu Yala and the Bundala National Park.

It was planned as a short walk around a little lake in the neighborhood in early October 2011 and I really didn't expect to find a blooming poppy on my way that late. Even if it doesn't look like - shot outdoors!
