Behind the Camera:
Born and raised in Basel Switzerland, photography became my obsession after a trip to Australia in 1989. For several years I dived into the otherworld of lenses and shutters and soon was fortunate enough to receive several national and international awards.
In 1995 my big dream of moving to Canada came true. Over the next few years the passion of photography got taken over by a new one, designing and building furniture and sculpture (bornartifex.com). Photography had changed to a more physical way of expressing and creating.
In 2011 the passion returned, and is today part of my professional and personal life. I appreciate the diverse fields of photography as a artistic or documentary way of expressing my views on life and its many facets.
