Welcome to my homepage!
This website contains a selection from the 1500 or so photographs that I took during my stay in Paris from May 1996 to May 1998 and my subsequent visits. I am ordering them into rather arbitrary themes and hope to add more in the near future. So if you're interested, please return now and then to see what's new.
