I recently launched my website and hope everyone will enjoy looking at it.  I encourage everyone to share the link with your friends who are interested in photography.

For the past 46 years, I have been seeking simplicity, directness, and purity in my photographs by attempting to capture the dignity and substance of ordinary people in their natural environment.

Photography for me is an act of distilling reality into my personal vision.  A photograph speaks without words; it provides a medium in which to express myself.  It is not only an art form but also an important sociological tool.  By looking at photographs of different periods and places, we can see how customs and conventions of a community change over time.

Three of my life passions are traveling, literature, and photography.  This has allowed me to broaden my view of the world and appreciate different cultures.  I want my photographs to resonate with viewers in this way.

I was born in Hungary at the close of World War II.  Later I emigrated to Venezuela, and also lived in Trinidad, Barbados, and West Germany before moving to San Francisco in 1971.  I became interested in photography in the sixties.  I studied photography and art at City College of San Francisco, San Francisco State University, U.C. Berkeley, and John F. Kennedy University.  However, I worked as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker until my retirement.

Now that I am retired, I am dedicating my time to my photography.  I have been published and have had two solo exhibitions.  My book, “Bay Area Families” was one of the ten jury selection mentions in the exhibit “Cover to Cover” at San Francisco Camerawork (2013) and won second prize in portraiture in the Professional Women Photographer’s 38th Anniversary International Women’s Competition (2014).
