One year after my father passed away, I decided to go alone for a few days to a small danish island west of Jutland.  

My parents spent their first vacation together on this island. They were eighteen years old at the time.  
For as long as I can remember, we went to this place as a family every fall.  

freedom, wind, sea, comfort

westlich vom Jütland is an attempt to connect the past and the now, loss and acceptance through the medium of photography.
Whenever I feel the need, I return to this island. I combine the photographs taken there with the archived images of my parents that they made during their youth on the island.


The project has been ongoing ever since.
