"If you wanna take a look at people as a photographer, you´ll have to win their trust"

I was allowed to accompany the two extreme sportsmen Wolfgang Kulow and Stefan Schlett across the Takla Makan desert. Along the northern and southern silk road of the province Xinjiang I met mostly very pleasant Uyghurs.
Travelling like that I get an idea how fascinating life is. And that’s what I wanna show with my photography...

„Um Menschen fotografieren zu können, muss man ihnen Vertrauen schenken.“

Ich durfte die beiden Extremsportler Wolfgang Kulow und Stefan Schlett quer durch die Takla Makan Wüste begleiten. Schon das war ein Vertauensbeweis für mich. Entlang der nördlichen und der südlichen Seidenstraße traf ich dann in der Provinz Xinjiang die meist sehr liebenswürdigen Uiguren.
Auf Reisen wie dieser kann ich mir ein Bild machen, wie vielfältig und spannend das Leben ist. Das hoffe ich mit meiner Photographie weitergeben zu können.
