I started to take street pictures in March 2011. Since then i´m addicted to it, i can´t go out without my camera anymore. I want to show you my everyday surrounding, the people i meet, the situations i see and i´m involved in. Not all pictures are taken without permission, sometimes i ask for a shot, because it is interesting to see how people react. Most of my pictures are taken in the cities Dresden, Görlitz, Zittau and Liberec (Czech Republic).
