About Photographer

About the Artist: Due to my fathers work I had the privilege to travel around the world from early ages on. Supposed to be born between a job in Brasil and Switzerland, i rather decided to become Swiss like my mum. Before my graduation at Woodstock School in India / Mussoorie in 2007 and after I have been travelling all over the world. What I believe in is that there is no better way of learning than by travelling and getting to know different people, cultures, habitats and manners to really be able to see the world from different angels and to differenciate from what we hear in the media. From history we know that history repeats and the key to freedom in any way is what Nelson Mandela always proclaimed: Forgiving instead of oblivion, forgiveness instead of hate. With this text and photographs I would be delighted to trigger of a discussion, one coming from unprejudiced interest instead of concluding judgement.
