ARTIST'S STATEMENT //
I am street photographer living and working in Basel, Switzerland. Growing up within my family's mask making atelier in Basel, an early curiosity developed surrounding what lies beneath any facade. Storytelling in many forms, especially photography and cinema, would fuel my passion for narrative and point of view. Without professional background, I picked up a camera and started walking the streets, on the lookout for an interesting scenery. With a growing interest it feels natural for me to explore my city. I am drawn to the use of colour, perspective and light as a vehicle for emotion and storytelling. In my country, Switzerland, the genre of street photography is not established as a form of art yet. In Autumn 2020, with four other swiss photographers I created the first collective in Switzerland for street photography - the Swiss Street Collective.
