My photography consists of landscapes, portraits and still lifes, usually - but not always - in my own black and white style. My portraits are rich of contrast and often photographed at a serene or vulnerable moment which results in abrasive, yet delicate images. Important to me is that every single one of us deserves to be seen. Even if we don’t meet the standard expectations. Even if we are different from the rest. Or maybe even if we are just women. Whether we are peculiar or just very ordinary, we are all significant and valuable. I hope my portraits can contribute to that and that they may have a positive effect on the self esteem and dignity of the people I portray.
