As a passionated photographer i trace the hidden beauty of nature and human beings. With my work I express what I see and feel doing so.
I love the primordial vigor of nature and archaic landscapes. The howling winds, the stormy waves and dark clouds are elements of my art. Encountering those moments of our spinning world, the essence of life, of my self, with the camera and with peaceful scenes of observation I try to capture and visualize the spectrum of light as pictures. To show the beauty of mother earth is the mission of my life.
Three series of photos give a feel of these emotions: color images of landscapes and of people in natural light, monochrome images of nature and long time exposures. Personally I can find myself especially in the series of monochrome long time exposures, because they reduce the exclusive, varicolored moments of perception to the true and everlasting – to light and shadow, space and form, sense and feeling.
In my work I am focusing on the essential and try to give emotions enough space. Therefore I shoot only natural pictures in natural light. I show the real beauty of each person. Soul-pictures...in the real sense of the word.
Description of work
I came to photography through second-chance education, but have been fascinated by this art long time before. I acquired my skills during several years, have taken courses, have studied specialized literature and the work of great photographers to educate my eye and to permanently optimize my technique through learning by doing. In 2013 I felt the time was right to go into business myself. I deliberately do not have my own studio and offer outdoor-shootings only. Apart from my artistic activity as nature- and portrait-photographer I do contract work for companies and private persons.
Grown up ...
I grew up in Switzerland in the canton of Appenzell Ausserrhoden as the first daughter of a four person family. In the elementary nature of this primal mountain landscape did my fascination and love for nature rise. I have started my professional education as a commercial employee in a bank. In the same function I have worked the following years at the trade register of the canton of St. Gallen and a lawyer’s office, before I followed my passion and became an independent photographer.
My Scotland-project with images from this primordial, magical landscape is the first important work of my artistic production. In 2007 it has been presented for the first time in the exhibition «Two Worlds’ and found a positive resonance.
Most important to me personally are the works of my new «Monochrome Fine Art» foto series, which where showed at several exhibitions in 2015. They come closest to the feelings I want to express by my «Emotional Clearings».
I invite you to discover my world.
