"A photographie is like a miracle - it allowes us to control and to stop the time, and also it shows us something you can't emphasize: The Movement, the Emotion, the Pain as the Beauty. It creates our memories - of everything we love."

"As a mommy of 4 kids, who takes in her hands a camera, instead of cooking spoon and iron. And I do not something else, as to absorb all negatifs, all what's important to myself and what's fading reliable: The LOVE, the Pleasure, the Sadness as a Longing" smell the children, the Loneliness and the Expactation. All this are stories which turn stil in my mind - stories which were written by people - and which I can read as a book. We all, everybody of us, has a secret, and only the photographie can save it, without to reveal everything!"
