EVA KERN - about myself

selbstportraitBorn in Vienna on February 28th. 1954, I sat in a darkroom for the first time when five years old, which impressed me a lot.


Eight years with the “ sisters of mercy”,  a catholic school run by nuns also had a deep and important impact on me.


After one year in Graphische Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt, an art school, I worked as an apprentice for Madame Lucca Chmel, a female pioneer of architectural photography in Austria, for three years.


During 1980/90 I had my work published in many Austrian magazines
Since 1986 I work as an artist concentrating on portraits.
