As a youth I used to play drums in garage band. When I discovered photography and began to study, I gave up actively playing music. After moving to Berlin and being inspired by the Jazz scene of Berlin, I started to pick up playing drums again and also, to visit Jazz concerts whenever I can.
Photographing Jazz musicians is kinda special to me. I do not know any other music style (apart from classical music maybe), where musicians are so intensely into it. Almsost in an meditative state of mind, where they forget everything else around them but music itself.
