About & Bibliography

Have I always aspired to be a photographer?

No, it was not always so, although from the time I was young, I have been interested in art, especially painting. My first encounter with photography eventually resulted in my first exhibition in Germany, when I was 18. 

But I fell completely in love with photography after the birth of my first child. Initially, I wanted to capture all these big moments and everlasting memories. Capturing the amazing range of love and emotions of a child is such a fantastic photographic challenge!  Moreover, there’s nothing like the joy of sharing our own hobbies and activities with our children. For these reasons, I feel connected to photographic portraiture but,  I admit it,  I am obsessed with, you could say hooked on any kind photography! I'm a passionate 100% self-taught professional photographer based in Switzerland. In 2015, 2016, 2017 et 2018 I received many recognitions, awards, publications in magazines and press which help me to work even harder on my projects and photography!

Personally, I think photography is linked to passion, art,  language and meditation. Every moment of this precious life is a source of inspiration for me. Also music and quotations of deep insight and wisdom play a huge role in my photography. I love making pictures which transfer the information of love, compassion, kindness and the simple beauty of each individual in a time of challenges. Furthermore, I believe that  beauty, which photography can convey to all of us, does not need to be searched for; it can be found in everyone and everywhere. Beauty is what we find when we are truly living in the present moment. The rest is just perspectives and details. 

My passion with painting, my love for art, my very first sold photographs and other artwork at the fourteen-day exhibition in Germany, the birth of my children all led me to the path! The whole process from start to finish truly excites me. With the mixture of training and self-experimentation, I continue to learn and renew my understanding.
