stealing souls for cash

Hello! I’m Elisabeth, a freelance photographer based in Switzerland. I’ve been shooting for national and international publications and companies since 2005, usually reportage and portraits.


At the same time, I pursue my own work, which focuses on long-term journalistic projects. In 2013, I published a book called Army of One, on American veterans and how they’re adjusting to life after fighting in Iraq, and I currently produce the two first volumes for my Lesbian Lives Project.
