My dear Reader,
Welcome to the new online magazine AUREA.link.
AUREA is the search for the ‘golden link’ between two worlds that could not be more different
– Europe and Japan –
yet have so much beauty to share.
Through this page, I will endeavour to provide the connection that brings the extraordinary beauty of both worlds closer to you.
AUREA is, to me, the golden dust of creativity (Thank you, Mr. Menasse):
the illuminated pathway to a unique lifestyle that will, I hope, inspire those who view my images to embark upon.
Majoring in the Japanese language has granted me unique access to rarely-encountered areas of Japanese life,
its culture and art.
These unique experiences are set against the backdrop of my own heritage – Viennese culture –
and these resonate across time and space in ways, as a traveller in both worlds,
I find enchanting and enlightening.
Allow me to take you with me on this journey through the immense beauty of life and living
and the uniqueness of linking the European and the Japanese culture,
and how both are emerging and manifesting themselves in our daily life.
Look at the World with the eyes of the soul.
This motto for life has been given to me by my teacher in the United States,
and has been the motto of my photography ever since:
When the eyes of the Soul touch the World, the objects come alive.
