This is a selection of my portrait work.
2019 – 2022
LADERAS una pintura cotidiana (Hillsides an everyday painting) deals with the current situation of civil society in the comunas (the outskirts) of Medellín (Colombia) The newspaper cuttings have a versatile function. They give context and disturb the narrative and do reflect the history and trauma the population of these districts did and still does experience.
2013 – Ongoing
„It goes on like this". My grandpa always says this sentence when I come to visit him or ask him on the phone how he and Grandma are doing. My grandparents are 94 years old and have been married for 68 years. This work shows how they still live almost completely self-determined and in love with each other. Teresa and Christina take care of them because they need more and more help in everyday life. They both live in Poland and take turns every two to three months with the care of my grandparents.

„In many ways what I want to do is say: ‚Let me take you on a walk.‘ And we’ll start here and then as we’re walking I say: ‚Oh look at that, look at this over there.‘ And then the walk ends. That’s the experience.“ Henry Wessel
Commissioned work for the magazine of the Staatstheater Darmstadt, which celebrated its 50th anniversary. I wandered through the labyrinth of the whole building looking for signs of all the five centuries of the house.
2017 – 2018
With Love — Drag Queens are like the greatest divas on stage. They blur the boundaries between man and woman. With their hyperfeminity, they often seem to step out of their human shell. With Love shows the in-between moments and the highs and lows of the transformation process.
El sueño de la realidad
Dejamos nuestro refugio y comenzamos a caminar. Parece un sueño pero es real.
Cimas cubiertas de nieve con palmeras en sus faldas. Abre las cortinas que te impiden la vista.
Habla y sonríe con tu corazón.
Quiero ser tan honesto como pueda.
Una sonrisa cálida puede abrir el mundo y el cielo.
Simplemente una parte pierde más despacio.
The dream of reality
We leave our shelter and start to walk.
It feels like a dream but it’s real.
Mountaintops covered in snow with palm trees on the bottom. Open the curtains that block your view.
Talk and smile with your heart.
I want to be as honest as I can.
A warm smile can open the world and the sky.
No one wins.
One side just loses more slowly.
Commercial work for Mammuts „Do what you can’t” campaign. I documented Tom Belz and his crew ascending the famous Kilimandscharo.
