I was born in 1967, studied Computer Science and European Ethnology, and received the PhD in Computer Technology in 2001. I took my first pictures in 1980. 6 years later I managed to get a simple dark-room equipment and experimented in black and white during my university days. In 1999 I decided to upgrade my computer in order to digitally process my pictures. Even though photography accompanied me all over the past 24 years I did not exhibit my works until 2002 when I decided to provide my pictures and those of other photographers to the public via the online picture agency www.pixcopia.com.
