I grew up in Switzerland and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area as an adult. Despite the many years I’ve lived here, I’m still surprised and intrigued by my surroundings – the light, the topography, the culture, the architecture. Since 2005 I’ve been working on a project to chronicle visually my emotional response (as opposed to a more documentary approach) to the community where I now live, the mid-Peninsula region that extends roughly from Millbrae in the North to Redwood City in the South. The project includes four themes: Castles (where people live), Main Street (businesses), Relax(leisure) and Vignettes (visual impressions isolated from context).

The full portfolio can be seen here. A broader selection of my work can be seen on my Flickr account
