SANDRA MÜLLER, now 25, bought her first SLR camera when she was 14. And even as a child she loved animals, from guinea pigs to her aunt's dog, with whom she spent all her summer holidays. Today, she is the proud owner of Maja, the "most beautiful Bernese Mountain Dog mix dog in the world", (who is of course also pictured in the book), and has found her calling in photography. Her speciality is portraits of people and animals. It is particularly important to her to focus on the individual character of the person portrayed - whether human or animal - in each picture.
