IF YOU LIKE TO SUPPORT MY WORK

As an independent PhD candidate, I financed my research myself and never received grants, stipendia, subsidies or government support. Same for the translation of my book and my war photography projects. It can be difficult, but I love to be independent. But somehow my financial resources tend to be rather stretched. You can support my work by purchasing my limited edition prints.
