I am a photographer
Because photography is my way of satisfying my hunger to create. And to connect. I believe that creating is a deeply rooted human longing, an expression of who you really are. Creativity comes in all kinds of ways. But is is always there. When I take pictures I am in flow. Do you know the feeling?
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.

is actually based on a missunderstanding.
My name has proven to be quite the tongue-twister in most countries I’ve been to. So I respond to almost any sound only vastly similar. The Burmese ended their attempts of pronouncing Kristin with a polite nod and the word Kinmara.
To put an end to excrutiating introductions, I quickly introduced myself with the new „name“. Back in the capital a few weeks later, we found someone who spoke English – Kinmara means nothing else but camera. That stuck.
