"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
Marcel Proust's quote expresses what my photography is all about. Focused on motifs of San Francisco, the Bay Area and California, my images show familiar landmarks from an unexpected point of view as well as every-day settings in a new light. For me, photography is the path to those "new eyes", for both the hidden treasures of daily life and for the beauty of structure, architecture and landscape. Depending on intention and motif, I choose between black/white - occasionally in a very graphic style - and color photography.
Enjoy your own voyage of discovery!
