If you grow up in a small city full of empty (medieval and Art Deco) buildings then it is not surprising when a great love for such abandoned places developed.

So it was for me – I am Elisabeth Mochner, a young photographer from Görlitz in Germany (a city which was split in a German and a Polish part after World War II and which is now established as location for Hollywood movies) and I realized fast that the love for portrait-photography fits perfectly together with all the fantastic places which surround me.

It’s like a walk into ancient times. It’s like daydreaming.
