I am Sebastian. I live in Cologne and am on the road in the Rhineland between Aachen, Bonn and Wuppertal. I was born in the year of the Wende and so I have three lives.I am a research scientist at the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment, Energy and research on sustainability and renewable energy systems. Before that, I studied physics of the earth and the atmosphere with a focus on climate dynamics and statistics at the University of Bonn. My master thesis focused on the polar jet stream and its changes over the last decades.For some years I have been active in the organization of the climate camps in the Rhineland. For this we go to the Rhenish region, where the highest CO2 emissions are recorded in Europe, and point out alternatives. What distinguishes left utopias, how a world without economic growth can work and what a good life for everyone means.
And I am also a photographer. Since I was given my first analogue 35mm camera as a child at the age of eight, I have been fascinated first and foremost by documenting experiences. In the meantime, my focus has shifted to reportage, portrait and concert photography with a reduced and documentary style.Mostly I try to tell stories with my photographs. Often about change in the small as in the big. Sometimes in color and sometimes in black and white and grayscale. Of love and resistance. Here in the Rhenish region and elsewhere.
