A little bit about me: I am a photo - artist based in Berlin, and I like capturing the ambience of the world around me through my abstract, simple-colored, and dream-like photographs. For me photography is like painting. Instead of a brush I use my camera. My main focus is on experimenting, not knowing what the outcome will be - I call it photographic painting. I have always had a strong interest in science/experiments that guided me through my degree in astrophysics.
I received my training in Vienna and in London, and my work has been shown in various exhibitions in London, Stockholm, Berlin and Austria.
Quote about my work by Wilhelm Huber: Wer genau hinsieht, kann in Mekuls Bildern entdecken, dass das Sichtbare in seiner prägnantesten Gestalt hervortritt, sobald es unscharf wird und dadurch Abstand und Umriss gewinnt.

I have a little sausage dog. His name is Ballon and he is my little helper and mood booster. But enough about me, get in touch, so I can get to know you!
