About Me

I am a multidisciplinary visual artist based in Addis Ababa. I use photography as one of my artistic media to express myself and my surroundings. I believe photography allows me to observe the world in a unique way. What I am particularly interested in is that moment in time where a decision has to be made out of several options to capture a certain image. I am always fascinated by the power of a single frozen image to provoke memory and all sorts of emotions as well as becoming a historic document.


I also work as a freelance photographer. I take assignments to document local and international seminars, workshops, NGO development projects as well as art exhibitions. My clients have included the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), the African Union (AU), the Goethe Institute as well as museums and art galleries in Addis Ababa.
