I was born in Austria, grew up on the black continent Africa, lived in Australia & Indonesia and had the opportunity to study in California. As you can see, I was on the road pretty much straight out of the maternity ward.
"There is so much to see in the world, so don't waste your time, because we only have one life."
I got familiar with foreign cultures at an early age and therefore I also developed a very precise photographic eye for details and colors. Travelling & Photography is more than just a hobby; it's my passion and it's what keeps me going.
Since I have been travelling from the early 70’s, when all those modern gadgets were not yet invented, travelling overland through remote and unexplored regions of the black continent was a privilege for only a hand full of people.
“It’s what made me continue travelling the world all through my life.”
Today a lot of regions that I explored by 4×4 truck with the simple method of a compass and map, are no longer accessible, at least not without an unease feeling. Back then, with Nisa in tow, the little white girl opened doors to the grimmest police officer just with her smile.
