udor was born in Germany in the middle of the roaring sixties in the bohemian part of Munich, called Schwabing. His father, a journalist and sound-engineer was a veteran of German film and television production, working for the largest German television network "Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen" (ZDF). udor began photography at age 11 or 12 with an old viewfinder camera of his fathers, his love for photography was already evident when he did an internship at the photolab of ZDF's media office at age 15, where he continued to work part time for the following two years. Press photographers recognized his talent and urged him to study photography and make it his living. Since those early critiques and recommendations started… they never ended. At the age of 21, he already documented the 1986 World Fair in Vancouver, Canada for 'Ute Emmerich Fotoarchive", a German stockphoto agency.
