I am a visual storyteller and multimedia producer at the Bombay Flying Club, mainly working on my own long-term, in-depth, documentary photographic projects around the world. Currently am working on a set of multimedia documentaries about the global commons water, seed and land: White Gold investigates the social and environmental effects of global cotton production, while my new visual research project Landrush analyzes the impact of large-scale agro-investments on rural economies and landrights around the world. Both series are part of the collaborative art and research project Supply Lines: Contemporary Resource Ecology.
In 2011 my Film Texas Blues won the German Reporter Award for the best German web-documentary and in 2012 I served on the jury of the Lumix Award. In 2010 I founded the German Multimedia Non Profit Spill The Beans! and Aggreys Dream, a project supporting a school in a slum in Mombasa, Kenya.
Besides my photographic practice I am teaching photography and multimedia storytelling at the Henri-Nannen-Schule, the Akademie für Publizistik in Hamburg, the Fachhochschule Bielefeld as well as the Freelens Multimedia Workshops.
Here I am featuring some of the videos from the workshops as well as some of my own stuff.
