For the past 5 years I have been sharing my time between Germany and Namibia.
And while living in Germany has its advantages, I'm feeling stifled here. And so, by the end of this year, I won't be dividing my time anymore: I'm going home.
Africa has always felt like my spiritual home, while Europe has always felt like a transit lounge.
In Windhoek I shall be building a daylight studio – for which I shall post the build-log here – and a lab in which I will be able to process everything from 35mm negatives to large sheet film and collodion plates. In personal projects, my emphasis will be on examining the desert, its wildlife and its people, although I will obviously be open to new creative paths as opportunities present themselves.
And unlike in Germany, I'll be in a position to accept commissioned work.
More details as they emerge.
