I am very much looking forward to exhibiting my new series about people living with HIV in this collaborative exhibition. Experiencing the pain and struggle of dear friends being diagnosed with HIV made me interested in the stigmatisation and discrimination related to HIV. Even though statistics show that new diagnoses have been declining since their peak in 2005, but coming out as HIV positive is still a massive step. My work is a collaborative multimedia portrait series which explores the personal stories of people living with HIV to create visibility and fight stigmatisation. Please come and join.

I am very happy to be the Senior Lecturer for Photography at the Mongolian State University of Arts and Culture. The university created a two year BA for Photography in collaboration with the Goethe Institute Mongolia. This is the first time one can study photography in this great country and I am very happy to be part of this! Looking forward to teaching my first course!
I did another shooting with the amazing organisation "Positively UK", which supports people living with HIV. Thankful for a day of good conversations and a lot of fun!
Great meeting with a bunch of passionated people to discuss the future of the Syria response. Thank you all!
Technology is amazing! Facilitating a workshop on "Positive visual language" with Syria Relief in Gaziantep, while photographers from Idlib participate via skype. Thanks to everyone for great discussions and collaboration!
(Due to the safety and security of the participants I will not publish images where they can be identified.)
And here it is! Refugees based in Berlin meet regularly to cook their favourite meals from their countries and enjoy them together - which allowed me to take pictures for this great collaborative calendar. I met amazing people and had the pleasure to taste delicious dishes from all over the world. Thanks to everybody and to Berliner Stadtmission! It was a feast!
As most of you may know, I am doing two pro-bono projects each year.
With this I will support NGOs and organizations that don't have the funding to create a wide visibility but do very important work.
And that's where you come in: send me an Email, tell me which NGO I should support this year and tell me why.
Thanks for your ideas!
I am really happy about the great article about me on the homepage of “Gründerinnenzentrale”. This network supports women on their way to establishing their own businesses. And it is an amazing space to meet and talk with interesting people. Thanks a lot for this support!
