About Cornelia Hediger
Though photographer Cornelia Hediger describes herself as private, she mines her own life for her work, as she explains: “I use photography as a visual diary. The inspirations are drawn from my own life.” Both creator and subject of her work, Hediger thinks of herself as a performer who enacts her own internal dialog in front of her camera. By staging ambiguous, impressionistic scenes, she deliberately allows room for interpretation, effectively balancing the personal with a more universal experience of the self.
b. 1967, Zurich, Switzerland
