Entry Description

It was my first time in Dubai and I was fascinated of this modern, unreal and pleasant city. Unfortunately the wind was always blowing the crystal water and ruining the skyline reflection. I had to visit this place three times very early in the morning and on the third day I saw this picturesque fascinating scenery of a unreal floating city.

About Photographer

I’m 50 years old and I live in Tirol/Austria. I think this beautiful surrounding and the fact I was working in tourism and love to travel have affected me to show people the beauty of nature not only in words but also with my own personal images. So I started to photograph in 2010. To perfect my hobby I attended the Prague School of Photography in Austria (2012 to 2014). I attended workshops by Julia Anna Gospodarou, Joel Tjintjelaar and Michael Levin and started a mentorship programme by Joel Tjintjelaar. With my images I don’t want to document buildings and things as they actual are - I’m trying to create an emotion and touch the viewer with my personal way of seeing things. I am convinced this is the right way to show my inner world of seeing things in the world, my personal feelings, my origin and my way of thinking.
