carne vale
2008 – 2009

These selected photographs from my early works show my raw fascination for the inexplicable life on this planet as a human being and deliberately, yet in a playful manner, evoke the question: has this gone too far?

farewell to meat – carne vale
literally translated means “no meat” from the Latin (carne=meat, vale=remove/eliminate)

Miss Piggy’s Happy Meal was one of the first series of photos that I have created. It reached over 20’000 views within a couple of weeks, on flickr.
