Born in 2001, I have been facinated by history and learning about the past from a young age. Reading stories about medieval sieges and roman cities as a child, history and the past remained one of my primary interests and hobbies into adulthood.
Another major passion of mine was technology, particularly computer programming. Starting to teach myself HTML and Visual Basic at the age of 12, I went on to join the Section I at the Lycée des Arts et Métiers, where I obtained my higher education entrance qualification with a specialization in IT and Communication in 2020.
Already before graduation, I realized that I no longer wanted to pursue a career in software engineering as originally planned. I instead opted to prioritize my interest in history and joined Heidelberg University. I now intend on specializing in modern history, using my background in IT to work on processing the wave of digital sources for use in historical research, which began flooding the world since the late 20th century.
Since I was 12, I've been interested in photography. Starting out with a point-and-shoot digital camera, I moved on to a Canon PowerShot SX50 Hs in around 2016, with which I took some of my best photos. in 2022, I moved on to old professional DSLRs and took my photography to a new level. This also kickstarted my interest in camera gear, and I began collecting vintage lenses and early DSLRs.
Recently, I also started getting into film photography - first with my polaroid autofocus 660, and then with 35mm film.
Although I mostly focus on architecture, street and landscape photography, I am shooting almost every type of subject: wildlife, nature, people (portrait & event), and even for research purposes (e.g. historical building survey of the Worms cathedral).
