Hello, My name is Carsten and I am a photographer and visual
artist based in Germany. I am currently working on a long-term documentary project about African Turkish heritage.
I also do portrait work and commissions. I am interested in all kinds of creative collaborations. Please feel free to contact me.
Due to my family's migration history, I mainly deal with diaspora, belonging, and identity in my work. For each project, I look for a suitable visual language and appropriate, respectful forms of representation. My projects focus on collaborating with people in front of the camera and letting them communicate with the viewers, rather than creating just narratives about them.
