I must admit it: my favorite hobbies except photography, painting and creating jewelry are fleamarkets, antic markets, thrift shops, garage sales, etc. I’m a very visual person, I love to view a lot of details and to find extraordinary things. On fleamarkets there are so many crazy and impossible things combined which you don’t find like this in other places. Sometimes it’s really funny, sometimes even a little ambiguous, which I beg to excuse. I don’t mind that I have to get-up at 05.30 – 06.00 h every Sunday morning in order to visit one of the many fleamarkets in Hamburg that are not too far away. When I come there, I forget being tired, I’m completely absorbed by looking at all these thousands of little things. I have been a collector since early childhood and I’m still collecting a lot of things. I have been very lucky many times to make a really good deal for something old and extraordinary, and that’s why our flat looks like a museum. I re-use a lot of old things, specially in our kitchen. Everything I have collected reminds me of a certain place and it tells me a story. That’s very important to me. In the last months I have photographed some extraordinary things which I hope you will like.
