When I was a little child, I received an analogue camera from my father. Ever since then, I haven’t stopped taking photographs. Today, after many years of experiencing, I have found my style and I try to convey my thoughts, fantasies, dreams, etc. by way of photography. What fascinates me in photography is the magic, the black and white effect and the contrast between light, dark and shadows. This fascination extends even further to old buildings and cars, objects, mystical places, nature, feminine forms and everyday things that are easily missed by the human eye. The chosen photographs undergo as little photo retouching or manipulating on the computer as possible. The result is a collection of authentic photographs. The purpose of my photograph are not only to awake someone’s senses and cause to think but also to tell a story, slightly provoke and even make someone chuckle. Creativity and implementation are more important to me than technical perfection. In a place very dear to me, I read a phrase as a child which had such an affect on me that it has, today, become my pseudonym and motto. Esse Quam Videri: Be real and not one who only appears to be. » Dates and Exhibitions October 23 to November 11, 2011 ArtEiss Art Exhibition at Ins August 10 to August 12, 2012 Art Position, Fribourg November 2 to November 4, 2012 Cré Art Corcelles-Cormondrêche May 25/26 and June 01/02, 2013 Fondation de l’Hôtel de Ville du Landeron November 8 to November 10, 2013 Cré Art Corcelles-Cormondrêche August 29 to October 5, 2014 Ecole Agricole Grangeneuve March 19 to April 19, 2015 Cafe Belvedere Fribourg September 11 to September 13, 2015 Art Position Fribourg February 26 to March 12, 2016 Galerie Hess Wabern Awards First place: for designing the official Lancia 2009 calendar First place: Motorpress Stuttgart, Germany, Category: Oldtimer-human being 2010 Tenth place: Digital living category for Childrens‘photography First place: Photo of the Year, The Bieler Newspaper Tagblatt“ 2012 First place: Johanson Design, Sweden Photo product launch for the P77 stool / chair
