No Man’s Land will be published by Till Schaap Edition in autumn 2020 with a book launch at the Bildhalle. The publication shows pictures by someone who has both travelled the world and stayed at home. Deserts, cities, oceans, bullfights, birds and elephants have caught the photographer’s attention while roaming the planet.
"It is not the instantly striking pictures that are interesting but rather those that are more retiring, that are hidden somewhere within the larger whole, and want discovering. These are pictures that don’t exist until the camera captures them."
