Born in Germany, I spent many years in France and the UK, where I studied at the University of London, before settling in California. I’ve dabbled in various art forms—music, writing, theater—but somehow found photography to be the perfect medium of self-expression. As a translator by trade, I think of taking pictures as rendering one particular perception of reality into another. A good translation preserves the essence of the original while fading into the background itself—I believe the same holds true of a great photograph.
