Soy Susannah – Limited Edition of 3 ▪ Price not yet determined
I never can say NO, but I know how to spell BABY. I am Susannah. And I never cry; cause my tears will never dry. Scratched is my soul, lifeless the eyes. My lips are passionate, but never they kiss. Soy Susannah. The silence is in my body, as I was too young when I turned from a girl to a woman. I don’t wear a crucifix, as it will not suit me and burn my skin. Instead I wear the marks of all the men who ‘taxi-girl’ me. On my arm. And in my heart. Sadness, beauty and isolation. All in one place. All in one face. Soy Susannah.
A visual reminiscence to the cinematic masterpiece Soy Cuba, a 1964 movie covering the imperial colonialism leading to the Cuban Revolution; especially dedicated to Maria, starring in one of the movie’s feature stories. And also a reference to the image ‘Bar Girl’ by photographer Eve Arnold (Havana/Cuba/1954).
The Mechanix – Limited Edition ▪ Edition number, size and price not yet determined
Soft hands, million dreams. Is this not the identity of a child? So much to learn. So much to accomplish. But not given enough time! Never do anything complicated when something simple will serve as well. It’s one of the most important secrets of living. Keep things at arm’s length – if you let anything come too near you want to hold on to it. And there is nothing a man can hold on to. From the satirical black photo essay MASH War No More
The Kid – Limited Edition ▪ Edition number, size and price not yet determined
For whom the hammer tolls. All Quiet on the Western Front? It’s only terrible to have nothing to wait for. It is very queer that the unhappiness of the world is so often brought on by small men. I want to think and at the same time that’s the last thing in the world I want to do. We are not youth any longer. We don’t want to take the world by storm. We are fleeing. We fly from ourselves. From our life. We are forlorn like children, and experienced like old men, we are crude and sorrowful and superficial – I believe we are lost. To forget is the secret of eternal youth. One grows old only through memory. There’s much too little forgetting.
From the satirical black photo essay MASH War No More, the metaphorical story of a seven years old, who is stationed as a young serviceman at a ‘Mobile Army Service Hospital’ (MASH) during wartimes. And a hospital alone shows what war is. For this reason he raises questions over the war.

Her tears are not allowed to cry. A photograph should talk. Over and over again, varying each time it is viewed. Sometimes I use a title to give a hint, but solely leave it to the viewer to analyze. I believe the interpretation also depends on age, education, experiences of life, culture area, origin or sex. I do not really care ‘how’ my work is seen, as long as the photograph does interact at all. Lack of time seems to be a status symbol nowadays for many people. Therefore, the ideal viewer is the one who has time to peep! A fine art print on a wall still can’t be beaten. There it rests and can talk whenever the owner passes by and likes to ‘listen’.
Steam and Steel – 1/1 Limited Edition (+1 AP) ▪ 80 x 53 cm / 31 x 20 in ▪ Price € 4.500.-
In the shuffling madness of the locomotive breath runs the all-time loser headlong to his death. He feels the piston scraping, steam breaking on his brow. He sees his children jumping off at the stations one by one. His woman and his best friend in bed and having fun. He’s crawling down the corridor on his hands and knees. He hears the silence howling, catches angels as they fall. And the all-time winner has got him by the balls. He picks up Gideon’s Bible open at page one. Old Charlie stole the handle, and the train it won’t stop going. No way to slow down!
Inno Saint – 1/1 Limited Edition (+1 AP) ▪ 80 x 53 cm / 31 x 20 in ▪ Price € 12.500.-
First impressions can be wrong. So let me clear what’s going on! I’m not who you think I am. I need to feel some lips on mine. So pulling you across the line! You think I’m the fragile one? One slip, the damage done! I’m not made of china, I’m not made of glass. Would it shatter your illusions if this angel had a past? If you want my future – forget my past!
Don’t wrap me up in cotton wool. Upon a pedestal. If you touch me I won’t break. Don’t think of me that way. I’m not such an innocent girl! I’ve got a secret rose tattoo. I’m dying just to show you. I’m not as shy as you think I am, oh baby! Don’t be scared you’ll break my heart. Not gonna fall apart …

From the series ‘El Degüello – Detroit’s Last Ride’. You have to take the photo that wants to be taken. And if the photograph will be too difficult ‘to be taken’ by others, then you take it for yourself.
There exists an unwritten contract, a form of a codex, between the photographer and the viewer. A photograph must reflect the truth. A photographer must be credible. No lies. Raw and honest.
