Diese Seiten geben Einblicke in verschiedene Projekte und Photoserien.
Bewusst entzieht sich Eva mit ihren vielschichtigen Projekten jedem Schubladendenken.
Ihre Philosophie ist das Leben als lebendiges Jetzt in ihre Kunst zu integrieren.
Das Alltägliche, vergessene Räume, die Zeit-Geschichten hinter Räumen/Frauen/Situationen
interessieren sie genauso wie der schöne Schein an der Oberfläche.
Die Serie „ in a room „ befasst sich seit 2004 mit Identität, Heimat und der Reflektion von
Gesehenem in einem stark reduziert angelegten Raum.
Sozialkritische Projekte bestimmen ebenso ihre Arbeiten.A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it is not open.

When Eva turned ten, she received her first camera for Christmas. It was her only wish.
When she turned sixteen, Eva took her first two-year dual working/learning apprenticeship in a photo studio where she also learned how to develop her own
photos. After several years of working as a photographer, Eva worked as a fashion show choreographer and director for more than thirteen years. In 2000, she studied photo-design and communication-design next to her full-time work schedule.
Since her diploma in 2002 with her project „Station Prizren“ in Kosovo, she has been working on her exhibitions and art projects.
Kosovo, USA, Europa, Israel and other countries were stations for her documentary artwork. Eva has her own philosophy concerning art. Most of her photos, Eva took with her Leica (analog). Eva prefers to work without a flash in order to protect the natural mood and atmosphere of the situation.
These pages will give you some insights into the world of Eva`s photographs.Eva: „Art is a process of renewal for me. Do not enter retracted paths and discover new perspectives. These pages provide an insight into various projects and photo series. The process of remembering fleeting moments, is the essence of photography. The everyday forgotten spaces and the stories behind people interest me like the beautiful appearance of the surface. There are documentary and staged projects. Both are important to me just the same.
Important to me is to reflect upon time.“
"The special connection between people and me are the result of my photography!"
