I knew from a very early age that I was a creative person. There were no artists in my family; my father was a pilot and all of our family was in the airline industry. I didn’t think that art could be a career, but my parents were really supportive.
When in Doubt, Go to CCA
I decided to leave Switzerland and go to the U.S. to learn English and spend a year at an art school. I liked the CCA catalogue best. I moved to Oakland in 1988, and within my first year I discovered photography and decided to stay.
I experimented a lot (this was predigital) and became good at the craft of studio work. Four teachers still stand out for me: Larry Sultan was a big influence -- a great mentor and a really inspiring person!
