BEEN THERE DONE THAT (TRAVELS / PROJECTS):
Westbank in early 2012:
In a one-day-trip we visited the village of NABI SALEH in the Westbank and documented the reality of the residents.
Like every Friday there has been a protest against a nearby israely settlemet. Like every Friday there has been clashes between the protesters and the IDF.

Aleppo, Syria in December 2012:
The civil war has been waging for just over a year, as we entered syrian territoriy in late 2012.
Each day rebels told us that the war will be won and will be over soon. The sheer destruction and madness was unbelievable.

GRAFFITI & STREETART:
Some of the Photos i took during the last decade:
"Just's breathtaking photos are dramatic documents of daring graffiti artists in action.
Through them you can vicariously experience the danger and thrills of rooftop writing."
