"Highlining", also known as "slacklining" up high, has become an intensely compelling and fascinating passion of mine. Though not knowing what exactly I got myself into in the very beginning, do I experience it now as a quite demanding but pleasing extreme sport (facing extreme situations and emotions ). My camera has been following me to every single Highline spot in Switzerland and France since my initiation, no matter how high and steep it sometimes takes to reach the anchor points on top of the mountain.
The beauty of Highlining is that every session appears to be completely different. It varies depending on a number of certain factors like the type and length of the webbing and back-up line, the height and full exposure of the highline set-up, sometimes even the weather but more importantly on your personal mindset and connection to control your body. This fact fascinates me almost the most. You can absolutely surprise yourself to an unexpected extend, just by how you arrive and how much you allow yourself to let go in the moment.
Slacklining, but especially Highlining, has turned my life upside down, it impacted my entire energy and mindset. As a photographer and as a young women who has tried to find herself.
Photographing slackers or highliners seeking the ultimate pleasure of diving into a very private meditational session with themselves, though in a breathtaking spot of mother nature, combines perfectly what I enjoy to capture the most.
