hip hop as a cultural art form makes up a big part of my life for about 10 years now. in my work N°5 I developed my own visual hip hop, an imagery of my hometowns hip hop-culture. the work illuminates the staging and construction of identity and authenticity within hip hop.
a critical view of my environment and my reality helped me realize my visual aesthetics. the focus of N°5 lies on staged portraits as well as the places, where hip hop emerges, develops and is performed. in this way I also try to deconstruct clichés in the context of hip hop culture. I want to show what community and unity means to me and the subculture of hip hop.
apart from photograpy I‘m active in an hip hop artists-collective named noedge, we organize and stage free open mic events, where young musicians can perform and express themselves in constant feedback with the audience.
