Sisi has worked on 2 major photo essays: “A Symphony of Symptoms” exploring performance related illnesses amongst orchestral players, and “Health & Musician” organised by the Musicians Union and BAPAM (British Association of Performing Arts Medicine). Her work is regularly published in the broadsheets and news and specialist magazines as well as being the subject of several exhibitions.
She uses Leica and Olympus technology (film and digital) and offers her specialist skills in music photography worldwide.
"Sisi is a photographer of exceptional quality. Technically highly accomplished, she demonstrates a thoughtful intelligent and resourceful approach to a subject..." "She understands her brief, is completely unobtrusive at work..."
"I can wholeheartedly recommend her for any project where sensitivity, flair and imagination are as important as technical competence."
