Portraits

My Life began in the constellation of an

African Village and my Childhood  was rich &

blessed with so many amazing Souls.

It has given me an openness to admire and cherish different personalities and characters. My Village taught me to enjoy all kinds of people. Having been loved by so many different kinds of Souls, gave me a faith in people, I try and give on to my children. I started a path as a Fotokünstlerin  (Photographical Artist) when I moved to Karlsruhe, in Germany. My goal and aim was a successful portrait. It was an enriching adventure, that taught me many more things… (but that‘s a different story.) At the beginning of that experience, I tried to get a technically perfect photo, (as some of my photographer friends had taught me.) ..but, actually, I was looking for something else! I was seeking to do an intimate portrait, which meant that I had to approach the Souls in-front of my camera lens, in a completely different way. Something you would not find in a textbook. I didn‘t want the typical „stick-on-Smile“… I wanted to dig for the real person. That enriched my Life. It made the hours working, hours of experience, hours lived. What I most enjoy about portraits? 1. admiring Source‘s Creativity in making different shapes, forms & colours or beauty… 2. But, most of all, empoyering people in their own beauty..
