Photography Extended

Experimental photo laboratory with natural materials

Photo lab without chemicals? What do black tea, beetroot juice and photography have in common? Here are a few impressions from my last photo workshop: Photography Extended - Experimental photo lab with natural materials. 


The focus of the workshop was on experimenting with "analogue photo filters" that are developed with the help of natural materials. Together we have also treated unique photo creations in a sustainable way and experimented the different techniques.

The workshop was realized in the framework of KUBI - Cultural Education Remscheid.

"Homeland - Europe" - A book project with refugees from Ukraine

In November and December 2022, the Wilhelm Fabry Museum hosted a photo workshop entitled "Homeland Europe". A workshop for people from Ukraine who had to leave their homeland for a time or maybe even forever...

In the course of this workshop, a book was created, which is now presented.


Hardly anything is better suited than photography to capture our homeland in all its differences and similarities and to show what makes it worth living and loving. This is another reason why the multilingual medium of photography was the linchpin of the "Heimat" project in Hilden.


The focus was on photos from the personal past that have a deep emotional meaning: Photos that can recall an entire history in memory. Originally intended as a personal memento, as evidence of what has been experienced and for communication, they now become ciphers for what has been painfully left behind. Countless of these images were brought out, discussed and finally selected for a collaborative book.


The book is published by Morisel Verlag, Munich, and will be available at the book presentation.

The project was realized with the help of the funding program "Sonnenstunden".

Stranger Things

A workshop together with photographer Max Slobodda in the framework of NEXT Festival of Young Photoscene 

This workshop was about a special walk with unusual discoveries and with many opportunities to experiment! 



This time it's not about a mouth and nose protection, but the creative "face disguise" inspired by the African masks, superheroes, comics and anime that take you in another world. In the world of transformation!

A cooperation with artist Daria Zabolotskaya and with a great team of 10 children and teenagers.

The project was developed within the framework of Kulturrucksack NRW at the Remscheid Music and Art School. Credits for the first four pictures by the wonderful Shirin Nazarova:-)

An ongoing artistic project with women. In the context of the meeting place of the music and art school Remscheid.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      It is a participatory, process-oriented course in which various topics are discussed and artistically implemented.

Something personal about me

° What do I like to deal with: reading, daydreaming, endless research... 

° What interests me besides photography, art, film, music and literature: astronomy

° What else would I have liked to become: astronaut

° How to move: I have been practicing Ashtanga Yoga for eight years 

° What I always miss: The eternal summer at my grandparents' house in Guria, in western Georgia 

° What am I doing secretly: writing

° Guilty pleasure: Some musical sins of the '80s and '90s and "Mon chéri"

° The love of my life: Luka and Shio

° What else matters: Friends who know how I am and still love me 

Anything else

° I love to communicate with people, to develop ideas together, to connect different cultures

° In my workshops, seminars and portfolio reviews I prefer to pick people up where they stand and support each individual to go their own way

° I'm especially interested in artistic and documentary photography. The topics of origin, emigration, young positions and women in photography and art are especially in my focus

° My artistic works are mostly conceptual, partly autobiographical, at the moment a mixture of text and image. I like to work with analogue technology and experiment with the alternative process
