7 years ago, I received a little replica of an iconic Volkswagen minivan from my parents and it was love at first sight for the young 60's obsessed teenager I was. The tiny car stood on my shelf for quite some years, but on a sunny Sunday in May, I took it out to the garden and took pictures of it. I shared an image of that van with a Paddington bear, and the feedback on Instagram was really positive, so now, for the last 5 years, I continued taking that minivan and a lot of new model cars everywhere I would travel.

This made me catch the Wanderlust bug. I can never stay in one place, I adventure all around my homeland Switzerland and Europe whenever I could for the last 5 years. The car photos became my little escape, nothing was quite comparable to the feeling I got (and still get) when I get my photo ideas just right.

Each little car has got its own personality and face, and they're all unique characters. The process of creating these miniature world images is a sort of self-therapy for me, enabling me to enter my bubble and forget everything around that worries me, I just fall back into that innocence of childhood and everything is so easy. I love to play with water in my car photography especially, reflections, out of focus areas.

It’s the moment and the emotion I want to share with everyone. So when people tell me that my car images made them happy too, there's no better feedback for me.

    A bit odd to see a surfboard on top, but then this car travels far, eh?
