This website presents my work as an author and photographer.
For years, I have been exploring places and issues all over the world, mainly in the Middle East and in Central Asia.
This has resulted in several narrative non-fiction books that were published in Germany, the States, Britain, China, France and other countries. In my blog and my photography, I search for depth and beauty as I see it.
In my research, I’m now most interested in what is happening on the fringes of Europe. I love to explore multi-layered cities and often meet people with fascinating stories to tell. Therefore, my style is a mixture of reportage, narrative history, and travel writing.
Currently, I am writing a historical travelogue about the East Mediterranean, to be published in 2022.
