  7. Crown Heights. November 2010.It’s my fourth day of lying in bed trying to recover from sickness that – if I’d be really honest – I have been struggling with for the past couple of months.
And while I see the sun playing outside I dive into archives, tell myself wanderlust stories and think about bygone times. 
(Like the times when we photographed our daily life in New York City, where this picture is reblogged from.)
But enough of dwelling on what has been, let’s focus on what is going to come. And on that notice: I’m Syndikat Artists new girl.

  8. Grandfather, April 2014.
A couple of years back I had pretty much lost myself. I had lost the idea of who I am. I had lost the idea of who I’d become. And I had lost the idea of where I’m actually coming from. I went on doing things. Most of them I need people or photos to remind me of. I went on inhaling and exhaling. I went on for months and had made sure that in the end I would come back to an idea of myself. 
Today something happened that made my heart stop for a second. And that made me think back to these days when with shaking hands I was wandering through life not knowing the importance of, well, basically anything. But mostly the importance of companionship and trust.
I missed out on saying ‘I love you. And I trust you.’ way too much in these past years. I still do, sometimes, but I promise, I’ll be trying harder not to. And so should you. (And thank you, Granddad, for letting me take that picture of you earlier this year. For letting me capture a moment of ease and joy even though I know you disliked me for insisting. I love you.)

  11. Wilhelm Schürmann for MONOPOL. Aachen 2014.
Right before I packed up my things to move to the north of Germany I was asked by the german art magazine MONOPOL to take portraits of 8 local art collectors for their special ‘Rheinland’ issue.

Can’t deny that meeting all these wonderful people with their very own way of thinking about art was extremely inspiring and made this assignment one of the best I was lucky to have taken on so far.

Exactly three weeks ago I moved to Hamburg and I have been falling in love with this city every single day since.
I started working on a new project and I’m looking for people who’d like to help out. Please get in touch if you’re interested in handwriting things down for me. (Instructions will follow.)
Before there’s going to be some free work, check out a little spread I shot for NIDO Magazine earlier this year (click through for more):

Aus Liebe zum Kochen

Okay so, I made a book. Most of you will know that already because I’ve bragged about it a lot. On Facebook and Instagram and everywhere else I had the chance. And I’m sorry to admit that I probably will keep on doing that.


But really, I made a book. With my wonderful friend Yvonne who in a way I was meant to meet and who became such a big part of my life already. Why that? Because we sought out to make this book. A book, that since yesterday is available in (hopefully) every bookstore (in Germany at least) and which is full of pictures I took over the last year. Which we poured so much of our hearts in and that is filled with stories of inspiring people. It’s about love and food and making the world a even more wonderful place by  something we used as a working title for months: conviviality.







I could tell you more about how truly wonderful everything turned out. About the people I met. About the food I ate. About the amazing feedback I got already. – Actually, I won’t. Because in some ways I just don’t know how to describe it after all.
But before I encourage you another time to buy that book (german only, though), I want to let you in on a little life lesson I’ve learned while doing this project: You’ll come across people who will tell you that you made a worng turn at some point. They will tell you that what you’re doing is nice and you’ll instantly will hear the ‘but’ in their words rolling towards you. And they will tell you that you need to be different than what you appear to be. Most of them mean no harm, really, most of them just don’t know it better. (And the ones who know better are just evil people and you need to get away from them immediately.) Anyhow: They are wrong! As long as you trust your gut and something I would call your inner truth, you’ll be just fine. You just have to keep going. It might hurt. But being honest to yourself and your dreams will pay off. I promise. And now: Buy the book!
(There are already some write-ups running on a lot of lovely blogs and you can enter to win copies. So you might wanna try this first: Lykkelig and Gourmet Guerilla to start with.)
