I am a self- taught photographer and living in Ratingen, a neighboring city of Duesseldorf, which is located in the western part of Germany. Photography is my passion since 2011. With my mostly minimalist photographs, I try to focus especially on shapes, colors and structures.
In my series “pole vault” I’ve tried to show this aesthetic sport differently as regular sports photography. I’ve chosen a very minimalist, artistic composition.
The movement of the pole- vaulters is captured as their bodies are flying through the air and gracefully seeming to defy gravity. Without ever showing a full body or an action, I try to stimulate the viewer’s imagination.
