 Photographers bio 

I’m a student and like it most to walk around with the camera in my spare time. I gained my first photographic experiences at the age of five with the camera of my parents. In the course of time, I have put my focus on landscape and travel photography. About four years ago, I became interested in lost places and since then have been documenting these exceptional locations in pictures. I think HDR is essential to reflect the special atmosphere of these spots adequately, because it strengthens the sense of decay.
