When in 2000, the palaeontologist Paul Sereno went to look for new dinosaur bones in the Sahara Desert, he did not expect that he would return from there as an archaeologist. Arriving in the northeast of Niger, Sereno and his colleague’s day after day sifted through the sand of Tener, one of the most inhospitable deserts in the world, which even the nomadic inhabitants of the Sahara call “desert in the desert”.
There were practically no finds. In the evening on the last day of the excavation, the scientists were about to leave, and most of them went to the camp, but Sereno still insisted that his team get to a distant hill, promising their employees that the expedition was on this hill.

HUNTED WOMEN '22/'23
During a local summer festival I ended up with my friend in a theater show where two young women created a performance about the historic witch hunt. It started out with humor and some funny lines but it gradually moved to a more serious and even painfull show. The witch persecution we know from the past was slowly moved to the present. Even though the cruel witch persecution is a long time ago, there is a lifestyle in which women and girls today are so often are sexually & mentally abused. Gender equality and freedom is still a painful theme. The reality is that women need to live in this society where men are still dominant. The female empowerment movements came from a long way, equality, dignity and mutual respect is key to a better life for women and girls around the globe.

There are three series that were made between 2019 and 2022. The high sea level and with it climate change create many problems that threaten many countries and islands. People are losing their homes and places to live while other societies see their entire island slowly submerged under water. Governments and administrators hardly talk about climate change, it is a painful subject for people who already have to pay the consequences.
LENSCULTURE AWARD WINNERS EXHIBITION, NEW YORK Chelsea Art Scene
According to LensCulture, 'We were completely delighted to welcome hundreds of photographers and photography lovers to our big exhibition in New York City this past week. It was amazing to meet so many of you in person — and to experience the stunning prints and brilliant large-format projections of super-talented photographers from the LensCulture community.
The exhibition featured the work of more than one hundred award-winning photographers who we discovered through the LensCulture award programs. Many people traveled from far away (including Europe, Asia, Central and South America, and Australia) to participate in the reception and party and to meet and network with fellow visionaries.
We were reminded again about how great it is to be able to connect in person, and to share insights and enthusiasm for the medium of photography and this wonderful visual language that we all share'.
