The Ghetto Tarot

is a project of my heart, which combines three of my passions: photography, Haiti and tarot.

It is a new artistic interpretation of the well-known traditional Rider-Waite-Smith deck. Set in the Haitian ghetto, these fresh scenes were inspired by those originally created in 1909 by the artist Pamela Colman-Smith.The photo project aims to reach beyond cultural boundaries of prejudice and ignorance to achieve a much-needed transformation of the collective conscious perception of the ghetto whilst discovering the power of our own thoughts.Therefore the Haitian slum is presented in another light and the pictures highlight the creativity and strength of its citizens.


I directed my first documentary AiDependence together with cameraman and co-director Frederic Biegmann in 2014.

My goal was to offer a different perspective on the doings of the aid industry using Haiti as an example for the happenings in many other developing countries. Infos at

I have been working as a professional photographer since 2007. Here, you’ll find a selection of my favorite works from all around the world, but especially from Haiti – a magical place. My documentary photographs from Haiti are fairly well known and have won me several awards including the Unicef Photo of the Year Award 2008.


Combining photo with sound makes the experience more real.
Here are my favorite Multimedia Videos that won me the 3rd prize Multimedia Portfolio Award in the contest POYi in 2011.
