My name is Ida-Verné. I am a photographer, a writer and a developer. I ground myself in an understanding of beauty as play. I believe that compassion is the foundation for insight and discernment. In my life as in my work, I try to incorporate stillness and silence as a counterbalance to life's torrent of sensations and experiences. Please enjoy what you find here and, if the spirit moves you, please get in touch.
