“Nothing is a mistake.


 There’s no win and no fail,


there’s only make.”


John Cage



“Art is for free”




I am an architect,


 since 11 years in UK and Switzerland,


and an active photographer.



The photography shown here has a content and a graphical identity.


I frame views not only from a content point of view but in a graphical approach as well.


Eventually one dominates the other.



I combine related captures.

I create a resonance, a story.


To me Photography is a balance.

It is a complement.

It is using another muscle, moving in another media.

It’s like walking versus swimming.

It is a mise en scène through perceived subjectively, a combination of content and graphical attributes.

It is a very intuitive approach.

So it is an addiction.


On fakeormistake.net, I share the products of this addiction.

Plenty of mistakes, but always a step further.


fakeormistake is an ongoing logbook.

It’s relating day to day experimentions and practice.


A conclusion to each step of my graphic curiosity.

It documents an ongoing experimentation.


It is the media which structures the material i produce.


Hope this gives an idea of who what and why.
