My name is Peter and I am a visual storyteller based in Hamburg Germany.
I always loved walking through cities for hours exploring urban environments and studying those individual habits that characterise a city. Photography became my perfect creative tool to capture those moments and tell urban stories.
I started taking photography seriously back in 2017 during a trip to New York City. I always wanted to capture the spirit of this unique city the way I feel it by telling it´s little everyday stories that make it so special to me. All this ended up in a private project called „New York State of Mind“.
My style is inspired by neo-noir movies playing in the gritty New York City of the 70s and 80s. I like the moody atmosphere in those movies. Therefore, I shoot mainly when it´s foggy, raining or snowing.
After starting to post my images on Instagram and building up a decent following I started to engage more with the community. Taking over street.grammers one of the leading hubs for street und urban photography and co-founding the.commuterstock were additional meaningful milestones to me.
