The only clear memories I have of my childhood are found in photographs. The rest are at best faded and blurred, and at worst gone forever. I grew up in Germany as an only child and now have three children of my own.
I have been fascinated by photography from the moment I first watched a Polaroid develop like magic before my eyes.
I photograph family relationships and the impact of early experiences on our lives.
Whenever I need my space, I retreat behind my camera.
I still collect old pictures of my family and of strangers and imagine the lives of those depicted.
I mentor emerging documentary family photographers and teach several mentoring programs. My photographs have received awards from Documentary Family Awards, Lensculture, and This is Reportage Family, among others. I am a member of DFP documentary family photographers and co-founder of DFF dokumentarische Familienfotografen.
