A Rebel Fighter against the state usury interest
Trotz Nullzinsphase stellt der Fiskus säumigen Steuerzahlern sechs Prozent in Rechnung – und kassiert Milliarden. Nun wehren sich die Betroffenen - im Fall von Hans Rieschel nötigenfalls bis zum Bundesverfassungsgericht.
I am very happy to see such a big Portrait of mine in the current issue of Wirtschaftswoche Ausgabe 10 2/3/2018 of Hans Rieschel in front of the Finanzamt in Witten.

A few weeks back I got a surprising email that lead to one of the most interesting assignments I have ever been called to photograph. I was send to Gelsenkirchen to cover and portrait Yusuf and his family. Yussuf, a now 17 year old radical islamist, is responsible for setting off a home-made bomb in April 2016 outside a Sikh prayer hall in Essen and is ever since then in prison. It was a challanging task but I was still able to make some nice Portraits of his mother Neriman durling a very late night shoot. Can't say I am not extremly proud of the outcome of this.
