Fashion photography, in her case, consists not only of a momentary shot for the pages of magazines such as Elle, Diva, Marie Claire, Madame Figaro, Votre Beaute, Gynaika, Klik, on behalf of which she has done covers and illustrated articles... but also as an example of artistic photography which stands the test of time. Her amazing ability to transfer her vision of aesthetic portrayal goes far beyond the view of the merely sensual eye.
