Rest in Peace!

Roland was unable to beat his long illness and sadly passed away on 26 October 2022.


I am a retired chemist living near Zurich, Switzerland.

As a teenager I was an avid photographer with my own darkroom, which was rare back then for a teen! Later, work and sports demanded my full attention. In preparation for retirement, I decided to revive the hobby of my youth - or at least try it out in the digital world. 

I don't specialize in any particular area of photography. I started with travel photography, but now I'm doing more and more studio work, a trade-off for growing age and waning physical abilities.

It's nice to see the different conclusions we draw from our life experiences. I am fascinated by the great diversity and many inconsistencies that our lives bring. I try to show some of this diversity in my gallery, while others try to create uniform styles and closed themes. Intelligent people can have different opinions - and bear them! 

The great thing about living in a free country is having the freedom - within legal limits - to put together our own individual set of preferences from a huge stock of possibilities. And this without being overly exposed to the danger of being unduly defamed by others (unfortunately, there are always exceptions), nor feeling the need to defame others. We all love to collect Likes yet we don't have to give Likes, we may!
