Real love seen the fine art way
...images that speak in the most splendid language.
In school I was the weird kid that liked poetry. Whole worlds built with words only, beautiful sentiments packed into simple sentences and the irresistable appeal they create. I guess in a way that is still what I strive to do today, with my camera: I see your day as a magnificent poem that I try to put into images. Images that speak in the most splendid language.
To me life is better with my husband, my loved ones, a hearty meal followed by decadent dessert, cats, silly cartoons, slapstick – and life needs to be full of pictures and words. I have a master’s degree in French Literature and Aesthetics and I’ve worked as a journalist for a while. Besides that I made and sold pretzles in my dad’s bakery for a long time.
I’m a craftman’s daughter who became a humanities scholar who became an artist. My photographs are often described as intimate, airy and artistic. I try to combine soft, light painted imagery with the impact of documentary photography. Most of all I enjoy a good portrait. And real human connection – to me that is the perfect combination.
