Street Sans Frontieres is coming up in Paris this weekend and some of my photographs will be featured in the exhibition as part of our guest appearence with The Street Collective. Street Sans Frontières is focused not only on classic street photography, but it aims to give a wider view of what happens in the streets of the world, a glimpse on human condition in the urban environment. The opening at "Espace des arts sans frontières" will be on Friday, May 18th, at 6pm. Entrance is free.

On August 24th Rheinwerk Verlag published the book "Streetfotografie - made in Germany". I'm among the authors of the guidebook - together with Mario Cuic, Siegfried Hansen, Torsten Köster, Marco Larousse, Christopher Reuter, Max Slobodda, Nicole Struppert, Kay von Aspern and Martin U Waltz - and contributed 15 double spreads. The book gives insight into the workflow of ten German street photographers. It shows their work plus background stories to each photograph and offer tipps & tricks on how to deal with certain situations in the streets.

In mid-April 2018 I'll be involved in the first edition of "Italian Street Photography Festival", an event dedicated to street photography, which will take place in Rome/Italy. Besides being part of the jury of the international singles and series competitions, we'll be presenting the results of "oktoberfesta", a German-Italian street photography group project, realized in cooperation with Goethe-Institute Rome during Oktoberfest 2016. More information on Facebook.

On Thursday, Oct. 5th, the exhibition "Via! - Street photography from Hamburg to Palermo" opened in Munich. The 82 pictures will be shown in the Cantina and bar of the cultural centre Pasinger Fabrik until November 19th. "Via!" is a German-Italian longterm photography project in cooperation with Goethe-Institute Rome, which involves 5 street photographers from both countries that documented every life in their home region for one year.

48 Stunden, 6 Fotografen, 1 Mission: Im Rahmen von „oktoberfesta“ nehmen sechs Straßenfotografen das sogenannte „Italiener-Wochenende“ zum Anlass für die Bestandsaufnahme einer Stadt im Ausnahmezustand. Beteiligte an der in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Goethe-Institut Rom entstandenen deutsch-italienischen Koproduktion, deren Verlauf vom 16. September bis 1. Oktober auf dem Instagram-Kanal des Goethe-Instituts Italien mitverfolgt werden kann, sind neben Kurator/Fotograf Fabian Schreyer die italienischen Straßenfotografen Giacomo Vesprini (Florenz), Matteo Sigolo (Venedig), Davide Albani (Mailand), Lorenzo Lessi (Cecina) and Riccardo Cattaneo (Mailand). „oktoberfesta“ dokumentiert 48 Stunden lang mit den Mitteln der Straßenfotografie den ebenso ungewöhnlichen wie gewöhnlichen Wiesn-Wahnsinn.

I'm among the 10 selected open-call-winners for the project "StreetProjections", which is carried out by PhotoWerkBerlin - in collaboration with EyeEm and KommunaleGalerieberlin: "The project StreetProjections presents different realities from around the world displayed by night through projections on the sidewalk of the Kurfürstendamm. The best-submitted works, selected by an international jury will be projected in the very heart of Berlin, in the central boulevard of Kurfürstendamm during night time. Duration of the exhibition: September 9th–Oktober 8th, 2017" 10 of my photographs will be showcased on the sidewalk for one months.

Unter dem Ausstellungstitel „SCHWARZ AUF WEISS” zeige ich ab dem 4. August (Vernissage: 19 Uhr) in der „Schwarzen Kiste” am Königsplatz/Augsburg eine Auswahl an Schwarzweißfotografien. Bis zum 11. September sind dort Aufnahmen aus Amsterdam, Augsburg, Barcelona, Florenz, Miami, München, New York und Rom zu sehen. Die im öffentlichen Raum aufgegriffenen Motive zeigen kleine Alltagsbeobachtungen – eine flüchtige Verabschiedung, einen sehnsüchtigen Blick, das Zusammenspiel geometrischer Formen.

After Palermo and Venezia the travel exhibition "Via!" moves on to La Spezia. Opening is on June 8th. "Via!"-photographer Umberto Verdoliva will be present to talk about the project.

Finally the „Via!“-zine is available! The catalogue contains all pictures from the exhibition in Rome. If you want to grab a copy, please send me an e-mail to
