My photographs show actual extents of glaciers near mountain huts where I used to spend much of my childhood about 50 years ago. Memorizing the former size, proximity and beauty of the glaciers and sewing respective threads on the pictures attended each other mutually. Our mountains will soon be without glaciers and the causes for are human made. I cannot hold this meanwhile inexorable process up nor can I reverse it. But I can rate the velocity and the extent of the changes, and give the mountain landscape back a glance of its past glacier beauty.

Born in Karthaus, a small mountain village build on and around a former monastery in South Tyrol in 1967. Having grown up in this same place I still live there with my husband, a dog and two cats. I have attended the Prager Fotoschule in Linz, Upper Austria from 2013 to 2017 and completed with my diploma work with the highest marking in 2018. Since then I work as a professional photographer and have participated in 3 group exhibitions in Austria and Italy.
