"The difference between a snapshot and a photo is the time it takes."


Welcome at Der Landgraph!

I'm a passionate landscape photographer from Düsseldorf, Germany. I fancy wild ragged landscape sceneries, in full splendid colors or in expressive black & white. Another focus of my photography is the industrial heritage of the Ruhrgebiet, at its time the biggest urbanized industrial area in Europe. Self-explaining that my photo equipment is an inherent part of every vacation trip I do. In the galleries below you can find a collection of my favorite photos.

 

Enjoy and have fun!
