The work "Weltreise" (World Tour) is dealing with the perception of everyday spaces in a wealthy society shaped by digital communication. Gentle social criticism and a good amount of admiration for the world go hand in hand, and lead to dry images full of subtle wonders. A world tour - mostly photographed in Berlin and it's surroundings - sure there's a bit of irony in it. But the title is also raising sincere philosophic questions: Where's the everyday ending and where's the journey starting? Isn't "the world" around here, too? Can and should something only be fascinating if it's unfamiliar and exotic?
