Diwali, Carnival, Eid Mubarak, Dia de los Muertos, Christopher Street Day… people celebrate together here. These surreal visions were created in MidJourney using artificial intelligence and Photoshop.
Admittedly – it’s a bit cliché. However, the skull series is intended to pose the question of individuality: Who are we really, is individuality only on the surface?
The images are rendered using Midjourney and Photoshop.
Torn and pasted, destroyed and embellished – this project is supposed to give the inevitably two-dimensional medium “photography” further levels. For this purpose, several photos were taken, edited, and put together with objets trouvés. The compilations follow certain aesthetic and substantive logics, have similar colors and shapes, similar themes or fit associatively. They often combine staged and documentary photographs.

Urbex, short for „Urban Exploration“, describes the exploration of lost places in mostly urban space. It is a genre for adventurers and nostalgics: One feels transported back to distant times, experiences how nature reclaims, overgrows and covers up what has been created by man, how time finally wins. Urbex locations are places of silence. In them one feels like experiencing a place outside time.
