ABOUT THE EXHIBITION: “Urban Ballads“ shows a series of 56 photographs, made in 2010-2013 in Berlin, New York, Paris, London, Shanghai and Tokyo. Many of the photographs show strangers, they are unposed, they are street photographs. They could be film stills, they could be part of a movie. They evoke stories in the beholder, who invents the before and after.

Dark“. He received 2nd placement in the “Brennpunkt Award“ and 1st placement in 2 photography competitions of the renown photogallery C/O Berlin.
