His photos can be found on CD Covers, Posters, Magazines, countless Artist Biographies and of course in the portfolios of several modeling agancies.
Jeden Tag sammeln wir unzählige Eindrücke, aus denen am Ende 'neue' Werke entstehen, die letztlich ein Spiegel unserer Bewertung zu diesem Sammelsurium an Impressionen sind. 
We collect countless impressions every day from which 'new' works emerge in the end, which ultimately reflect our assessment of this  hodgepodge of impressions.
