What’s It about?

It’s about seeing the stuff around you…

Beauty is out there in the streets. Eventhough the streets may be dirty, over crowded or completely empty, there is always something there to look at. Often too matter of fact to stand out. It’s the secret language of unmeant things and combinations that coincidently occure.


During walks and wanderings through a city or an area, my eyes are often drawn towards the ‘stills’ of a scene. They search for the serene simplicity amongst the often dynamic or even chaotic surroundings.

My desire is to capture this still life, as I found it. Nothing was staged and the light is as it was.

And ‘what’s it about’ furthermore..? About getting you to fall in love with my work and wanting ‘a Rittershaus’ in your house, restaurant, office space, shop, gallery or hotel! Or maybe to talk about something you think I can help you with..

So let’s get in touch:)
