2021 Schauspielhaus Zürich

In collaboration with the company of Schauspielhaus Zürich, a series of photographs was produced that was meant to represent each individual and yet portray a sense of cohesion and community. It is an elaborate and detailed photographic study on the subject of the group portrait, dealing with ideas like closeness, intimacy, presence, and absence. The resulting series is an experiment as such and at the same time a statement of resistance.

Crowdfunding Campaign

Ongoing Independent

My roots often take me back to nature, to the alpine areas of Switzerland where I was born and raised. But it is only now that I am beginning to realize how close I was to nature there, how utterly beautiful it is and, how essential it is to appreciate, nurture and highlight this beauty.


2021 Paulina Muenzing

Paulina Muenzing is a fashion designer based in Berlin. On the occasion of her master's degree show at UDK Berlin, I photographed her collection SIMULACRUM, which is inspired by the overpopulation of digital images that we manipulate through copying and sharing. The collection explores how the hyperlinked network structure invades our identities and questions our emotional relationship to the internet.

2021 Annabelle magazine

Annabelle, the oldest women's magazine in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, repositions itself and takes a stance. The magazine remains „belle“, but it gets louder, more political, more critical and it shows that these terms do not contradict one another. In collaboration with ROD agency, we photographed 6 individual women who stand for exactly that - Modernity, a critical attitude, coolness, and beauty!


2020 Johanna Gauder

The new collection by Berlin-based jewelry designer and goldsmith Johanna Gauder highlights chain elements and brings solid, larger silver elements into play.
