In April 2017 I joined in Leh the Capital of Ladakh, Northern India, a group of 3 other woman ,where we set out to photograph and document some women in remote ethnic Himalayan communities. We travelled over moonlike landscapes visiting remote high altitude villages, 10th century monasteries, enjoyed home stays with the most beautiful people who so willingly welcomed us in their homes, having home cooked meals around the kitchen stove. Through my images I hope to give you an impression of this amazing place, and especially the fascinating women of Ladakh .

I have a great love for travel and photography, meeting new people and nature. I am a member of the Australian Photographic society and received last year my L.A.P.S..
