What am I doing ?
Sometimes I answer: I’m making every day black and white images to earn my life. I’m a radiologist by profession, a physicist and physician by graduation.
Beside scientific research I always felt attracted by music, literature, painting and art.
After times of painting in watercolor, oil and sketching I restarted photography in 2005 with my first digital SLR, a Canon 350D. After a couple of years of poking around in the dark I discovered astrophotography in 2010.
Physical properties of lenses, telescopes and of sensors had to be understood. I became familiar with technical details of image acquisition and editing under a cosmos of conditions.
And I found a way back to the light at daytime. Only recent with a friend we combined digital images of photo sensors and x-ray sensors to get beautiful results.
The sky is the limit.

What's important to me
Ever since I undertook any image related efforts: there’s always something to show, the naked eye wouldn’t see without.
It’s just normal in my profession as a radiologist.
It’s likewise in astronomy.
And in good photographs, too.
