About me

About me

apb_edited.jpg

Capturing everyday objects, picturing everyday things that the normal eye often misses, and showing it from a different point of view. This is what my work portrays.

 

For over 40 years I have been developing my love for photography and my own style.  It is my challenge to surprise the viewer through my work. 

Hopefully, little by little to train his or her eye to be more sensitive to normal things.

 

In 2003 I moved from Switzerland to Dalton, GA.

 

In 2012, nearly ten years later, I challenged myself with the project to show off some characteristics of the two 'worlds' in photos. Not as a documentary and even less as a comparison, but with snapshots showing the particularities I see here in the U.S. and the ones I was used to while living in Switzerland.

 

I rarely manipulate the photos digitally. 

I am sometimes using unusual photo sizes while using traditional and new styles of framing and mounting the photographs.

I look for unity between the photograph and its presentation.

 

I currently live with my wife in Dalton, Georgia where we formed, in 2003, Alrol of America.
