Very excited to be part of the Mamagaze book published with TeNeues in Spring this year alongside so many talented and amazing artists and Moms.
I had the pleasure to teach and lead a photography workshop for young adults and creatives as a part of the festival SPRICHCODE in Austria.
This past semester I worked with the bachelor students @fat.linz @kunstunilinz lecturing and teaching a fashion photography workshop online and in person let me explore not only new ways of seeing my own way of photography - first and foremost it allowed me to interact and work with amazing talent and involving them in the process of putting together and pulling off a 2 day shoot, playing around changing schedules and weather forecasts and discussing which images will finally “make the cut” and why. Thanks for having me and for your feedback and great ideas: Mert, Seann, Teresa, Peter, Marilies, Laura, Sandra A, Sandra K.
please get in touch and/or check out the IG account Passion Pays the Bill for further info on the photographic work.
The photographic series by New York-based Austrian artist, HELGA TRAXLER, entitled “Passion Pays the Bill” picks up fragments of a variety of stories and careers in its depiction of eleven musicians in unique environments, chosen by the artists themselves.

I am sharing some of my favorite places and shops and talk about why it always feels like “Ein Sommer wie damals” and despite my almost 10years in NCY still like “Home”. Especially in times of covid and lockdowns it’s even more important to support small businesses and your people. Wishing you all a healthy and better 2022.

"Her work springs from emotional endeavor much more than concept, capturing imagery that is harmonic yet composed.She pursues motifs and models that she feels personally connected to, often times delving into details and getting lost in exploring deep nuances of color ranges while blurring the borders between fashion and art" #GradientSouvenirsIf you wanna have a real honest description of your work - ask the ones who know you best (thanks Fabian Lorenz!) and thank you all for coming ... Especially Roderick Aichinger and Katharina Poblotzki for the great time together! There will be more images plopping up real soon ...
