The Eyes Are Windows To The Soul

My interest in photography began and quickly turned into life long passion some thirty years ago. I got my first camera while stay-at-home-mom. I loved roaming the streets, camera in hand, while the kids were in school. I was fortunate to be able to build a small dark room in a basement of my house – my sanctuary – where I spent countless hours working in b/w.
I whole-heartily embraced the digital age, which not only added color to my work, but offered limitless creative possibilities.

I’m mostly a self-taught photographer.

In recent years my main focus has been on travels to distant corners of the world in an attempt to experience, learn and – of course – photograph. Every click of my camera’s shutter turns fleeting moments into permanent records, images impervious to fading, images of diverse cultures, their people, their customs, ceremonies, celebrations and daily lives – images I love to share.

My portfolio “The Eyes Are Windows To The Soul” is a selection of casual, intimate portraits taken while roaming through many remote villages, crowded markets of India, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Myanmar. I have found, that for most part a friendly smile, a friendly gesture, the camera and most of all respectful curiosity – a universal human condition – is sufficient to establish a welcoming and friendly atmosphere.
