Elisabeth Scheder-Bieschin

Elisabeth Scheder-Bieschin's interest in visual communication and politics led to a career in commercial photography and editorial assignments for many European magazines. She has lived in London since 1997, and began experimenting with early forms of photography in 2013.In collaboration with "Silver Jungle," she produced a series of cyanotype prints that celebrate the beauty of the natural world: summer grasses, fallen feathers, a butterfly wing, humble markers of the changing seasons. Invented in 1842, the cyanotype process was first used to great effect by the botanist Anna Atkins in her study of British algae. It has a ghostly beauty, one that seems to perfectly encapsulate the confusion felt by the Victorians during a time of rapid scientific advancement, when the natural and the supernatural worlds became blurred. Elisabeth’s simple yet striking images were first shown at Paul Smith in London; the large cloudscapes later travelled to New York and San Francisco. Her work has been included in exhibitions at the National Portrait Gallery and Royal Academy of Arts in London.
