Every city has its own unique history and personality. My city portraits want to combine the diverse impressions, discoveries and events of a place into one picture. The compositions are inspired by vedute of the 17th and 18th centuries, but in a contemporary reality that includes objects of street art, art in public space, advertising signs and shopping areas etc. as symbols of everyday urban life. Through digital merging and collage techniques of a large number of my individual images, current cityscapes result between documentation and staging.
