“Z. Z. besteht meine Kunst aus Kreativer, abstrakter Fotografie, die zum großen Teil durch Zeichnungen, Scherenschnitten, Folien, Lichtquellen entstanden sind. Abfotografiert und im PC bearbeitet. Daraus mache ich Serien und erzähle damit kleine Bildgeschichten.”

"I love colors and non-colors. Now I thought to portray it in a series of pictures. That's how I see nature. The beauty there is in the abundance of colors, but also the beauty in the melancholy of the non - colors. This is how my pictures were created and designed in abstract forms. Now everyone can decide for themselves what like better."
