SWISS PHOTOGRAPHER AND ARTIST
*1975 IN OXFORD,UK
BASED IN VIENNA
Regina Hügli has been working as an independent photographer since 2002, when she graduated from Zurich University of Arts.
Portraiture and visual storytelling in reports and corporate imagery are her key fields of expertise.
Based in Vienna since 2008, she works on commission for various magazines, institutions and companies in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. Her work has been awarded both by the Swiss and the Austrian Assocation of Professional Photographers.
Regina Hügli’s art projects focus on questions of consciousness, identity and the human condition in a philosophical context. She works both by a documentary and experimental approach, exploring qualities of time in the medium of photography and video.
In the last years, the element of water has become the main topic of her interest. On this, she has been organizing interdisciplinary group projects including both artistic and scientific approaches. Thereby she has been working as curator of exhibitions, moderator of interdisciplinary talks and editor of publications. Her projects increasingly follow an activist path, questioning anthropocentric behavior towards nature.

ABOUT MY WORK
”There is great beauty in everything, every person, every situation. Sometimes it just needs a change of perspective to see it. Photography is a way of seeking and showing it.“
