BIO

Born and raised in Switzerland, I started to take pictures at age ten and have been captivated by photography ever since.

After working as a photojournalist and commercial photographer in Switzerland I moved to San Francisco in 1992. For the last 20 years I have focused on fine art photography.

Having no formal training, mistakes were and remain my best teachers.

My work is as diverse as life itself. I have been creating images using a variety of techniques, most recently photogravures and cyanotypes.

My images have been shown in galleries and published in print and online both in Europe and the US. I have been a recipient of the 20x24 Camera Grant from Polaroid and the winner of the Golden Light Award from the Maine Photographic Workshop as well as a professional Photographers Award from The Santa Fe Workshops. My images are in numerous private collections, such as those of Graham Nash and Joaquim Paiva as well as in major collections such as the Polaroid Collection and the Lucerne State Collection.

I live and work in San Francisco.
