I was born in Arnstadt, a small town in East Germany and spent most of my teenage life there. After my education, I worked in different companies and lived in several cities, including Tel Aviv, Hanover and Moscow. I am married and have two adult sons, who are both studying.
In 2002 we moved to Moscow because of my husband’s work. It was here that I discovered photography for me. About eight years ago I picked up my first digital camera and started exploring the world around me with it in hand. In the beginning, it was part of exploring Moscow, a huge and beautiful city and to keep memories of my walks. But soon I realized that with a camera in hand I paid more attention to details and the people around me. I was just fascinated and this fascination never left me.
I tried various genres, but my greatest fascination lies in street photography. The people of a city, town or village bring life to the place and give it a face. I like to capture them in candid moments, unnoticed.
