festivals and events



I took portraits of women, trans and non-binary people at this leather fetish festival, which is mainly visited by gay men. My FLINTA* pop-up photo studio was in collaboration with FOLSOM Europe and supported by Other Nature Shop. Our aim was to give space to the underrepresented individuals at this male-dominated event.

FOLSOM Europe asked me to shoot a photo reportage of their street fair. They wanted a female take on their event.

CSD Berlin


“Society is becoming increasingly tolerant when it comes to sexuality, but if you are in a wheelchair and have a different sexuality from “the norm”, it is almost seen as a double handicap.” -Hanna

In collaboration with Inklusion Muss Laut Sein, a non-profit organisation that stands for barrier-free festivals and events, I captured portraits of differently-abled bodies at CSD Berlin and wrote down their story.

Hanna has always thought she was bisexual, until her child (17-year-old transsexual) explained to her that she is pansexual – she falls in love with people, not genders. 

Hanna is diagnosed with SLE – systemic lupus erythematosus – when she was 16 and has been in a wheelchair for 8 years.

I met her at the wheelchair podium at the side of the CSD main stage, where she was watching the programme with a friend. When I asked her what she thought about accessibility for people in wheelchairs during large events like this, she told me that, unfortunately, it often fails to provide what is needed. Despite a protected area for wheelchair users and a translation of the stage programme in sign language, it is still not barrier-free enough, in Hanna’s opinion.

This was proved when she had to go to the toilet. She managed to navigate through a crowd of waiting people to get to 1 of the 2 handicapped dixies, which was almost too gross due to the use of the many ‘normal’ visitors.

Eva suffered a stroke in 2021 and is therefore dependent on her rollator. She has come to the CSD to support a queer family member who is walking in the parade. She herself comes from a small village where she grew up among narrow-minded people therefore she feels that it’s important to show up as an ally for the LGBTQIA+ community; especially as there recently is a global rise in hate crimes.

In the protected area for wheelchair users at the CSD parade I photographed this wonderful little family.

Jessy has been dependent on her wheelchair since 2009 due to a kneecap injury (patellaluxation). Unfortunately, after 16 operations, there is still no improvement.

Jessy and Elisa met in 2015 and got married in 2018. That same year, Jessy developed her first herniated disc in her cervical spine and required surgery.

In 2019, they lost their first son Noah in the 5th month of pregnancy. In the middle of the pandemic, Mads was born extremely premature at 26 weeks. He is small in stature but is developing wonderfully!

In December 2022, Jessy underwent a second hernia operation, when everything just seemed to be going better she suffered her first two strokes last February and a 3rd one in April. After examination, Jessy was found to have the autoimmune disease APS (antiphospholipid syndrome) and in addition she was diagnosed with SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus).

However, this does not stop them from participating in life and enjoying the CSD parade together.



I was asked by CJP to capture festival visitors wearing their coolest outfits at hiphop festival WOO HAH!

Boerenrock Festival


This farmer rock festival is all about tractor pulling, cross, enduro, music, fairground and camping. This photo series at BRF was commissioned by RTV Drenthe.

Circus Charivari


During the Circus Biennale in Berlin, I took portraits of circus artists at Villa Kuriosum. I built a pop-up studio behind the circus tent and photographed the diversity of this international community.



Inklusion Muss Laut Sein is a non-profit organisation that stands for barrier-free festivals and events. I had the chance to go with them to the Superbloom festival in Munich, to raise awareness that everyone should feel accepted and respected and can participate equally.

Galerie Yes. Baby


To capture the visitors of Sommerfest in Essen, I created a Pop Up photo studio at Galerie Yes.Baby.
