Hi and welcome to my gallery!
If you don’t know where to start, take a look into the Apophysis album for my fractal art experiments. Give Norway a shot if you share my fascination for nature.

License and CC0
Many images here are under CC0, since you cannot release your work to the public domain in Germany.
Follow the link above to learn about CC0 and how you can use CC0 work.
If an image is released under CC0 you will be able to find such a note below the image and/or in its meta data. If you do not find that note, the image is probably not under CC0. Especially images containing persons are not under CC0.
There are images where I am not the owner. You can find out who is the owner of an image by looking at its meta data or the information given below an image.
When using my CC0 work it would be nice to give me attribution if there is an appropriate way to do so. You don't have to, in which case I don't like you personally.
If you build upon my CC0 work it would be nice to release it under a free license.
Releasing my images under CC0 is more like a project. In the end I might or might not be disappointed about society and/or single persons. My profession has nothing to do with selling images and allows me to do this without any risk.
I believe that a strong public domain would boost society a lot. Every single person could build upon the work of millions. The internet gives us this chance and we better not screw this up.
If you want to use images in a way that is not allowed by its license, if you want to use images that don't have a particular license or if you need higher resolutions of images you can contact me.
The software behind this gallery is written in PHP by me. It is OpenSource and free. You can download it from github. Note that it is still under development.
For a fast start download this file and upload it to a directory containting images.
There are modules to improve galleries. For example modules to display non-image files and text, to zoom on images that don't fit in the view and to show EXIF infos.
In this gallery I'm using the ImageInfo module to provide information about the creator of an image and the license which are saves via EXIF/IPTC in the file itself. The LargeAlbumView module displays large images of an album on one page. The Zoom module gives you the ability to view large images better. Text module is for having texts like this one you are reading right now and Link module helps placing image links in the gallery.
