Edouard Boubat, one of her favorite photographers that inspired her the most, said in an interview in Paris, 1991 : ” There are certain pictures I can never take. We turn on the TV and are smothered with cruelty and suffering and I don’t need to add to it. So I just photograph peaceful things. A vase of flowers, a beautiful girl. Sometimes, through a peaceful face, I can bring something important into the world”.
